Good shopping place. Make sure you bargain, even if you do not understand you can use a calculator to key in the amount you are willing to pay and they will reciprocate.

This is a favourite of local Chinese tourists. So be warned it can be crowded. The store owners are also not open to bargaining here either so things can be a little expensive. However the silver jewellery is magnificent and local food vendors are a treat to watch. Avoid weekends but it will still be busy. Try to ensure you... More

Although not on weekends, but it is still crowded. Many gifts stores crowded by Chinese are along the narrow lanes. Some painters draw portraits for you at spot. There are many sorts of snacks there, but it is a little bit expensive than the snack street near Jiefangbei, I think. A folk house kept in ancient style is attractive and... More

CiQiKou is basically the ancient town center of Chongqing... Apparently the city looked like this before they started building all these large buildings... Nowadays, Ci Qi Kou is an attraction for (mainly) chinese tourists. It's a crowded place with numberous souvenir shops and places to buy some food... Maybe it's a bit overrated... especially on a busy Sunday afternoon...

We went here on a Sunday and it was so busy we had to get out. It was nearly impossible to move and as we were warned about pick pockets, we were always on our guard. The old village looked really interesting, but it is so touristy and crowded we could not enjoy it and couldn't get out quick enough.

Ci Qi Kou is a must see attraction in chongqing. We spent a couple Hours there during our China trip and could easily have spent more. The crowded narrow lanes are filled with interesting shops and street food vendors. Bathroom available at your own risk.
