I took the Green line to Jiaochangkou to transfer to Red Line 1 to go to Xiaoshizi and exit 5B. When you come out of this exit, the Cable Car is right behind you. There are areas where you can pay using WeChat Pay or...More

It took an hour from the queue for ticket purchase, the queue to go up, the wait for the car, . . . The ride is only about five minutes, then you've got to queue to return. The car is very crowded and unless you're...More

We took the cable car on a return journey (30RMB). You buy the ticket from the ticket office then join the queue, which looked very long but actually goes down quite quickly. We went from the city centre across to Nambin Rd side and left...More

The cable ride is famous in Chongqing, yet it is just a normal cable ride. The only good thing is it overlooks the Yangtze river; the bad things are the ride is very short about 6 minutes, very long queue takes about 45 minutes and...More

Short trip across the river and back. Very long lines both ways. Views of the city available from many other viewpoints. Maybe shorter lines off season and weekdays. Not worth the time.

Not all that great during the day. They really pack you in there. You can cross the river for a shorter line opposite the Hongyadong. Probably better at night when all the lights come on.

Avoid weekends and public holidays, the queue can be an hour of difference compared to normal weekday. Not costly but there’s nothing exciting except for the view of the river. It is still being used as a mode of transport to cross the river.

Nice to go from Yuzhong early in morning (before 8 Am) to avoid queues. After exiting on either side you also have nice opportunities to take pictures of the cable car departing and arriving. On the side just exit to the left and walk to...More

The lines are very long to use this attraction. We went at 9pm and were afraid we may not make it in before closing time. Folk in line were happy and chatty and we passed the wait easily. Once your ticket is finally purchased; its...More

I am not sure. I took it in the late morning and then walked down the river to an outdoor area that had some wonderful restaurants for lunch.
