First, it is located at the wrong place. It is a monument to commemorate a war victory, located in the middle of money making stores. Secondly, it is not beautiful, has no special features, really nothing that makes it different from a random building wall. Third, some English could have been useful to tell foreign tourists why some Chinese people... More

Visited last May. We saw this and had to ask what it was. Literally in the middle of a shopping district. It is a WWII memorial to celebrate victory over Japan. A bit more could be made of its significance as something of note when passing.

A monument dedicated to the revolution surrounded by jumbotrons and mega stores. Curiosa specially for people visiting Asia for The first time

What looks like an ordinary monument actually has a stronger meaning behind its existence. No doubt the neighbouring mega shopping malls and fashion brands like H&M, Gucci, Louis Vuitton etc seem to diminish its existence, but if you're there for the shopping experience, then perhaps this monument will just be nothing of importance. For me, I resided in the hotel... More

It's difficult to review this when it's simply a monument in the middle of a huge pedestrian shopping mall, surrounded on all sides by high class shops. Unfortunately there is little to do but look at it, because you can't even go up inside it. The shopping area is of little interest unless you want to splurge out on "branded"... More

Not really much other than a monument surrounded by posh designer shops. Nicer at night when everything is lit up. Try and go with someone that knows some of the history and can actually tell you about it.

If you are in Chongqing you have to go... pretty standard luxury shopping area.. but within minutes you can walk to more interesting neighborhoods going towards the river.

It is a historically significant site. But I was disappointed to find a commericalised monument. The clock in the clock tower is a overseas brand. Nevertheless it is worth the visit not for the monument but the shopping around it.

The Jiefang Monument is surrounded by malls, stores and bars on a / the Pedestrian Street. It's a great location to enjoy the night life. Comparable to the Times Square in New York.

There is nothing to see nor to take photographs.. When the soon to be famous red stick building is finished, there will be at least something to memorize.
