A bit of ancient China in Chongquing

I recommend going there. Not only for the souvenirs but also to enjoy some traditional Chinese architecture which in the city centre is not common.

You can find a lot of similar places in China. Most of the things they sell is mad produced and tacky. Okay if you just want to walk around.

The Porcelain Village is worth visiting for a god taste of local cuisine, souvenirs and general people watching. Its crowded but not a problem, I found the people to be friendly and easy to get around. Public toilets quite bad so suggest you bring some toilet tissue as a back-up!

Be prepared to spend the good part of a day wandering the Ci Qi Kou area. Easy to get lost with all the walk ways and side streets to explore but you will always end up somewhere you have been to regain your bearings. Good chicken, cookies, walnut cake like snacks, etc. Don't forget the egg roll guy.. He looks... More

I went twice. Once on Saturday, and there were lots of people there, but still ok. On Sunday you could barely walk. The place have many nice shops with crafts, cute stuff. You surely can find those shops all over the big cities in China (at least in Beijing, and Chengdu, the places I have been so far) and they... More

There are wonderful tea houses to spend the afternoon. The temple here is a great place to spend a few hours - and there are great views of the from the grounds. In general Ciqikou should be avoided at national holidays or even weekends. It is at its most pleasant on weekdays when the crowds are smaller. There are also... More

I didn't really be able to see things more careful 'cause it's so crowded, but it's a good place to shopping for some art souvenir.

I loved the small houses which served some cool snacks and drinks. The whole spot is cute in a way. Great place to spend a lazy day in Chongqing

The Ci Qi Kou market and street leading up to it are full of food stalls and arts and crafts shops. It gets very crowded on weekends (we were there on a Sunday) so that you have to look where you're walking (cobblestones) instead of looking at the shops. You will find some of the same items here as in... More

Ciqikou is very easy to get to by metro. It is highly touristy - remember that all these tourists are Chinese, you might see one European - but still interesting. The temple is worth a visit. If you continue along the lane that the temple is in, it will eventually bring you, by way of the non-touristy part of the... More
