All the upmarket stores but very few real shoppers. The monument looks very British and i would strongly avoid this area if you can. Otherwise you will find lots of western shops at high prices.

Went to the Jiefangbei square and monument on March 19, 2015. I was hoping that the monument would have some English signage but it does not. The area around the monument is very well developed and you can find lots of dining choices as well as shopping choices. The apple store is within 100 meters of the monument. We had... More

Plenty of good people watching, if your a shopper, this is the place to be. Good place to see the new Chongqing and modern development set amongst the old crumbling ruins being systematically torn down. Great lit up building at night.

I got there by accident looking for the way to another place. I just gave up of my old plan and decided to stay a little longer. It was quite late, so many shops were already closed, but there was still lots of people around and the lights made it very beautiful. Before I was a little disappointed with Chongqing... More

It is considered the city center of Chongqing. It's a pedestrian area with in the middle an obelisk clock tower (sponsored by Rolex). Nothing extraordinary, you will find a lot of people walking on the street going in and out the busy shops. Most of them are considered luxury brand as Omega, Tods, LV and so on.

There's isn't much here. It could be any modern shopping square in any growing city in China. I suppose if youre Chinese you would go here to see and be seen buying designer goods, but for the average tourist…very meh

It is a symbolic scenic spot of Chong Qing. There is a hugh, tall monument there, with a lot of modern shopping squares around it. A good place for shopping. And the night light sight is very beautiful, you can choose to have an eye of it at night after shopping.

Not much to do here, unless you are very into shopping. A little monument stands near the entrance of a pedestrian only mall, flanked by several shopping malls fronted by big labels such as Rolex, Gucci, Armani etc.
