Mass of humanity

We headed to see the joining of the rivers and you have to time things so as not to run into the boats emptying huge numbers of passengers. Very crowded

Come here for two reasons: 1) to take a boat tour (any time) or 2) see the merging of the rivers (which can only be seen in daylight). There are much better places to go to see the lights of Chongqing. Be aware, though, there is currently a massive redevelopment project (Raffles of Singapore) going on here. Almost the entire...

Take an evening cruise with many of the boats there the price is about 200yuan and above and includes dinner and a nice night scape of Chongqing. Can really give you lasting memories of a great city.

Went here for night view, but all I saw was crowd. There wasn't much view at all. They had changed this place to a marketplace. Not worth a trip, unless you are going to take a boat ride.

Chaotianmen is the oldest port in the city. The view gives a view of the city which at night is awesome. River cruises leave the docks

The view on the river is good - if you disregard the mess around. If you don't have to, I don't suggest staying in Chongqing in general - it's a dirty city even comparing to other Chinese cities.

Historical place, very iconic. with some good restaurants, wholesale market, cruise ships. in couple years this area is going to be different. there is a huge building is under construction, which is going to block city's famous "mountainous city spirit" view

We arrived there in the late evening, so there were not too many people, but place was still living. We could get traditional Chinese street food and enjoy watching skyscrapers in the lights and ships on the river. Although it was foggy, the view was impressive. I enjoyed the evening very much.

The core of the city, the intersection of the Yangtze River with the Jialing River. Here, old and modern architectures mix in a peculiar combination of styles. Overall, during an average day, the impression is "grey": mist, perhaps pollution too, and concrete buildings. During the night, however, the colourful lights brighten the view.

the place is a peninsular shaped area where two rivers from two sides meets. the Yangtze (Changjiang) river and Jialing river meets. the area is a commercial center to buy goods in bulk, wholesale and cheap items. It is a great place to see the traditional market of Chongqing.
