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.
It's just a clock tower in the middle of a high-traffic shopping area. It's more or less the focal point of the Jiefangbei shopping district, but there's nothing historical about it. If you're in Jeifangbei at night, come take a picture in front of the monument because it's kind of cool. But don't bother going out of your way to... More
Not worth to make a special trip to see it but if you're in the town then you can't miss it. There are lots of luxury shops around the monument and you can feel specially at the night little bit like you are in New York!!
Too many people! It wasAA rainy day. Was happy to see how pro active China was towards tourism. A lot has been done to support the locals
Near the memorial there are luxurious shops such as LV, Gucci and stuff like that. We were there in the evening and it looked really nice, but nothing special.... If you have limited time in Chongqing, I would skip this square and memorial...
