Hongyacave always seems to featured as a 'must do' in Chongqing. The building itself is great to look at down from street level when it's all lit up but much of the inside isn't worth exploring. My boyfriend and I made the mistake on our first night to pop into one of the bars which eneded up being the most... More

The whole place is a 11-story architectural structure in which there are souvenir shops and bunch of snack/street food stalls as well as eateries. It situates by the JiaLingJiang riverside, so it has a pretty good view of part of the city, especially at night. The outside of structure has a lot of lighting that gives the place a quite... More

I recommend going during the night instead of the day. The rivers, city, and Hongya Cave will look much better at night. The small CQ food from the vendors was good.

I stop by here each time I'm in Chongqing. It is not the original buildings but I think they did a good job of replicating what was here long ago. The architecture is interesting and there are places to eat and shop. Stop by and see for yourself.

Rubbish new built tourists attraction, it's nothing to do with historical things at all. It's a place where mainly selling the same stuff you can find anywhere in China, and it's very depressing. If you want to look for a little adventure to walk up the man made fake cave, you might find it stinks, rubbish on the ground, and... More

This place is extremely unfriendly for strollers and very crowded. You have to fold your stroller and carry your kids and stroller around. Given the crowd you can only hope to not hurt your kids squeezing through the crowd or much worse have them go missing.

One of my favorite parts of Chongqing, mostly because of the architecture. The place is gorgeous during the day, and spectacular at night! The restaurant towards the top was pretty delicious, too. An excellent place for pictures, people watching, and browsing knick knacks.

A cafe charge RMB48 for a bottle of local where you only need to pay RMB15 in nice restaurants in other places. Can find all type of chilli there.

Has been being modified as commercial zone-you can take a quick look, but not really think with for staying there for long time, but may can have a meal there to feel it's atmosphere.

Hongya Cave usually refers to a group of buildings facing the Jialing River and backing to cliffs. Their structure support are from both ground and the cliffs, so pretty unique. There is a waterfall, not sure it is man-made or natural, just beside the cave with a path from top to the lower street level. In the middle of the... More
