A nice view from the different (expensive) shops at the monument. Nearby you can have a drink or you can shop in the shopping centers. It isn't more than a stone clocktower around 8 meters.

It is a very beautiful clock tower brightly lit at night. It is located in the centre of the square surrounded by trendy shopping malls and ultra modern tall buildings, office towers and hotels. Since it is historic, there are always crowds of people who just mingle, sell and buy stuff, socialize and take pictures. The atmosphere is very relaxing.... More

Interesting clock tower in the middle of CHongqing's Times Square. Not much to see, although there is lot of history attached to it.

I think the frescos of farmers and soldiers suffering but winning against the Japanese with the Rolex clock sitting in a shopping Mecca is interesting.

Just a monument, nothing special for separate trip only to see it. But if you go there you end up in the middle of shopping street with malls and tonnes of people

Was only in Chongqing for a day. My friend took me here and it wasn't anything special. The monument is located in the heart of the city, with plenty of food options around. I believe we walked past a couple of night clubs but we had to drive slightly further away to chill in a pub.

This area is a city center. And this monument was the highest building in Chongqing some years ago. You can see how fast developed and developing this city. Place is good specially at evening/night time.
