Went there on a hot and humid weekend afternoon in March. Between the dense crowds and the pungent smell of certain food like stinky toufu, it was bad! Although there were a few interesting shops, the vast majority were really uninteresting and repetitious to us. Most disappointing was there was no porcelain shops of any kind which really makes a...

This is a great spot to wander and see a bit of China, food and all. Loved the street food and snacks...there are a few spots that are super popular (based in the long line winding around the block) and definitely worth trying. There are also some fun shops with trendy western knick-knacks. It's definitely worth wandering around and seeing... More

I live in Chongqing but took my family here when they visited. Ciqikou is one of my favourite tourist spots to visit in Chongqing. It's outside and can get pretty crowded, especially at weekends, but it's a nice change from the skyscrapers. Loads of cute shops where you can pick up jewellery and gifts, tourist tat and lots of Chongqing... More

This is the best tourist destination in Chongqing. It is pretty far from downtown(JieFangBie) but is definitely worth going to if you are in town for a couple days or if if you live in town and have never been(I find this hard to imagine.) CiQiKou is easily accessible on the subway that goes through town or by taxi(expect at... More

I really enjoyed the mix of traditional Chinese culture, and tacky tourist things. It was incredibly crowded even though we went on a Thursday. We walked all the way down to the river, which had some really nice places to sit and eat and just take in the view. There were river cruises, but we didn't do them. Every store... More

Ciqikou is a popular place to visit for both local and visiting Chinese tourists. It is also an interesting stop for visiting foreign visitors because of that.

Being stationed in Chongqing for my job for years, I went to Ci Qi Kou a few times with my friends visiting from abroad but more so with my family & dear friends of China. It is always a pleasure to go through the shops to find something interesting and reasonably priced, bite on the sugar "paintings" of dragons &... More

We spent a very enjoyable couple of hours just wandering through the streets, browsing the shops and stalls and generally soaking up the atmosphere. Although it was apparent that the area had been restored and was preserved as a tourist attraction it simply didn't matter. It was a full-on assault on the senses and was a photographer's delight.
