We thought this would be a quick in and out trip but we spent a lot more time than we had planned to. There are some really nice malls, bookstores and museums in the area. We stocked up on snacks at the Ole supermarket, visited the Chongqing Art Museum for free and got lots of pictures of the interesting architecture.

Jiefangbei Square is a shopping district established in 1997. It is the best area to shop and experience local upper middle class life-style in Chongqing. You can find all the branded names there and there are quite a few big malls. There is even a big Applestore there. Finding local or foreign food is also no issue. For western food, there are a few Mcdonalds and Starbucks located there. Local food is also available at a corner. The Square is a short walk from Hongya caves. My advice is to compliment this shopping with Hongya Caves visit. There are all within walking distance and will complete your shopping experience in Chongqing.

One of the busiest places in Chongqing. Many of luxury and other high end brands have stores in the adjacent or nearby mall. A great place for shopping, dining or having snacks, people watching, and more.

It's a very wide pedestrian street in the central business district, and is mostly designer shops and malls, the revolutionary monument in the centre, and people. There are also lots of places to go eat and have a drink. Our hotel was right on this street which was very convenient as the revolutionary monument is a good landmark to help you find your way back. Good place for watching people.....and as crowded as Chongqing can be I never felt this street was too crowded (unlike many other places).

I think that pic is not the Jiefangbei Square. it is Hongya Cave? not sure.

we walk around Jiefangbei and found people are friendsly especially the girls are so pretty.

we heard that the people siting down the center are looking for photographing beautiul girls.

that is wonderful.

But we like the Bayi road best. it is not far away from the center of Jiafangbei. it is called old Chongqing impression. it is quiet.

enough said. ......

ok, ok. If you are looking for the #1 shopping, retail, and business district in Chongqing and even all of West China - Jeifangbei is it. It is the primary Central Business District in Chongqing City, centred on the Jeifangbei Monument (People's Liberation Monument). Surrounding the monument is an above and underground pedestrian square (with pedestrian streets radiating like a star), with the city's most prominent skyscrapers, retail malls and shopping destinations, restaurants, bars, dance clubs, theatres, hotels, and street foods.

Jeifangbei CBD is accessible by two subway stops, numerous bus routes, and all taxis regardless of English know Jei Fang Bei and can take you there. If you can't afford to shop at the high end stores, arguably the best thing to do is to people watch - Chongqing is said to have the best looking women and they all congregate in Jeifangbei. Be careful of the crowds!!

Jeifangbei is the most prominent, Western - yet still Chinese part of this area of China. If you only have a short time in Chongqing, Jeifangbei is not a miss - for that New York slice of China!

This is the heart of Chongqing city. It houses the People's Liberation monument at the center of the pedestrian walking boulevard.

There are plenty of eating and shopping options in the vicinity. It is also the place for people watching.

A busy downtown area good for shopping and people watching. But we ended up spending most of our time in the multi storey Xinhua Bookstore with the children. A wonderful way to escape the heat.

Large square with Food Street nearby along upscale and other retail shopping, along with food shops/restaurants. If anything, this square is great for people watching.
