Ci Qi Kou is right on the subway line and about a 15 minute walk from the nearest stop which makes it definitely worth a half-day trip from central Chongqing. We ventured off the main street for a bit of a break from the crowds (don't go on a weekend if you don't like crowds) and went uphill into the... More

This an attraction where food and cool drinks and traditions are in abundance; from beef jerky, icy lemon drinks, blocks of congealed hotpot (huoguo), lollipops, nut-filled sweets being pounded by hand, silver smiths working and so much more. Have a good tourist guide with you, ask questions and enjoy the many foods on offer. This is a popular attraction and... More

Maybe we were just in the wrong spot, but we didn't see porcelain. The main street is crowded with tourists (mostly Chinese) and shops. The shops sell mostly local snacks, scarves, and trinkets. It's fine if you want to shop, but we weren't that impressed. Off the main street the village gets quiet and deserted. There are simple murals on... More

After all, it is a traditional shopping center at artificial village. It gives you an image on how typical Chinese market used to be; littles shops along the street with all sort of goods and food, some of it is handmade. It is a busy, touristic place! We stopped by a small restaurant which offered a short duplication of Chinese... More

Very well resorted village with good value shopping cheap restaurants and atmospheric tea houses. About 30 mins from our hotel on Nanbin Rd this was the highlight of our short stay . Could not find a bank that would accept foreign ATM cards so bring plenty of cash. Good local clothes porcelain and chilliest of every type !

Ci Qi means Porcelain in Chinese but don't expect to see anything like that there. It's just a glitzy shopping street that sells all sorts of snacks and chillies and tourist stuffs. Looking for cultural and historical stuffs, look elsewhere.

There are a lot of interesting retail stores, but I didn't manage to spot a single porcelain store. A great place to get your souvenirs, which includes soup bases for their hot and spicy hotpot.

Many food shops, many crafts shops, and lets not forget the souvenirs. Enjoyed walking the small streets and the nice little shops that line them. We were there on Sunday and it was very busy so have patience and enjoy.

We stopped at this village on our way to our Yangtze River cruise. It is a well preserved old villages that caters for the tourist trade. Make sure you visit the pagoda which is a good climb on some steep steps but you will be rewarded with the views of the river. And the pagoda in itself is very interesting.
