An historical monument build after WWII and very significant for the Chinese people. Just go watch, take a few pics and enjoy the shopping around it. For me the monument wasn't much to talk about.

A central point from which the malls and shops spread out from. Not that noteworthy but does tie the area together and you will likely see it if you do any shopping in the area. Worth a wander by.

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.
