It is very nice view.The square looks like deck of vessel from another side of Yangtze River.It is very magnificent.Especially I recommed visitors to attend river curise.You can see many beautiful sights,building with different color lights.As it is mountain at the side of Yangtze and Jialing river,you will feel this is gorgeous city.

There are so many steps there, crazy. But it is the best place to watch the Yangtze River and Jialing River. We took Yangtze Cruise from here.

Good place to start your visit in Chongqing. I recommend you to go there in the evening when you can see plenty of shining lights and Chinese people dancing at the square. This is one of the only places in Chongqing downtown with umbrella selling hawkers. No need to spend time more than half an hour.
