According to my guide, this monument used to be the benchmark (limit) for the height of buildings and structures in Chongqing. It is located in the middle of the CBD, so you can't miss it.

Tip: Do not visit on a rainy or drizzly day, like I did. I managed but it could have been a lot pleasanter.

The monument was very old and badly maintained. It was surrounded by character less shopping malls like everywhere else. There were a lot of restaurants nearby but not a place to enjoy coffee. Don’t wast your time here.

The monument USED TO BE the tallest tower in town....that was about 15 years ago, things have changed. A source of pride for Chongqing, as it was rebuilt many times during WW2 after being bombed. The people here rebuilt it to show they could not be defeated. The plaza around it is the activity center of downtown.

This is a very busy spot, lots of people gather around the tower. There are a lot of designer stores and shopping malls surrounding the tower. There are some local shops as well.

This city is very bleak in many areas and then in this area it is very alive. Nice to walk around at nighttime.

The word Jie Fang meant liberation in Chinese. I felt free getting there because it made a great change for me to get away from work.

The monument is in a square surrounded by shopping mall, eatery, the lot. Unlike a lot of places, it is clean and children can run around happily. It is nice to come in January. Avoid July, August and September because it can get over 40 degrees easily.

The People's Liberation Monument right in the center of the square is an obelisk, not too high, that was built to commemorate the end of the Second World War and later transformed into a monument to hail the Chinese revolution. It's located in the most central section of the city of Chongqing, attracts quite an audience do to its meaning as lots of chinese want to take pictures by it. It's surrounded by tall buildings in the square with several high profile stores.

Located mainly amongst high end shops. It's pretty easy to get to and not particular crowded. I felt it looked better at night than during the day.

There might be some historical meaning here but the area is mostly about high end shopping and people watching. It's interesting to see the selfie-stick being used for everyone to take pictures.

The Jiefang Monument is a must visit in Chongqing! The monument itself is rather small - a lonely monument standing in the center of a square, surrounded by all kinds of shops and all.

People are here for the overwhelming shopping and food experiences. Expensive stores such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Burberry, etc can be located all in one place. Brand name stores are extremely expensive, much more expensive than Europe or Northern America. Foreigners who visit China cannot process tax refund in any way, so one is paying almost 1/3 more here. Unless one finds something that’s limited edition in China and not available else where, do not get it here.

Food is just amazing near Jie Fang Monument. There are a ton of food options from sit-down restaurants to street market, from steak and wine to local delicacies, from everything that one knows to everything that one may not know exist. Highly recommend the street market near 81 square. The Chongqing pork nugget (“Chongqing Su-Rou”) and giant grilled squid are highly recommended! For 50 Chinese dollars (About US$10), one would get super full! Come hungry!

Recommend time to spend - one afternoon plus dinner!
