This ancient village is located on the bank of Jialingjiang River. It gives a good reflect of what Chongqing had been like in the distant past. Most of the construction is of bamboo and timber and date from the Ming and Qing Dynasties but still well preserved.

Take the subway line 1 for a nice little half-day trip. Lots of inexpensive souvenirs, but not a lot of high-end shopping. There are some cute shops on the road near the temple--porcelain and cat-themed stuff in particular. Wear comfortable shoes, as there are loads of stairs and cobblestones. If you go on weekends, it's crowded, and if you go... More

This ancient village/town is quite a distance from central Jiefangbei...maybe 30 minutes by taxi with average traffic past Shapingba.The monorail station is close by. I have visited many times over the years that I have been coming to Chongqing. Opinions will vary depending on what you expect and the crowds you run into.It is very commercialized in recent times to... More

Ci Qi Kou is the old part of the City, rather Commercial but nice to see and to experience some Chinese touristic life. We did go a foot bath - filled with Little fish, eating the old Skin, funny Feeling! Otherwise lots of touristic stuff but the buildings are real

This town is reachable by subway line 1, almost to the very end of the line. Very narrow street lined with many shops selling yoghurt, Mah hu biscuits and water melon candy floss. This street leads to the river bank where there are a couple of restaurants.

We only had a short time to visit this area as we had a ship to catch, I wish we had longer, lots going on, a good atmosphere, I suspect it is especially good at night.

Many shops selling all sorts of stuff. Set in an ancient Chinese style setting. Our guide told us the buildings were 600 years old. Excellent shopping for gifts here mostly inexpensive. Fairly crowded and busy but worth a visit.

It is super easy to get here on the Metro. Get off and follow the crowd up a narrow alley. The signs say Ancient City. We were lucky it was a rainy day so I think it wasn't so crowded. Fun spot to shop without pushy sales. Mostly Chinese visitors. We were a spectacle to many. We followed the main... More
