Very westernised. Fanatastic gold jewellery. Beautiful Ballgowns. Expensive, expensive!!! Electronic goods dearer than home. Chinese girls in city shorts and mini skirts ,seem to have adopted western fashion with gusto!!! This is a place for people watching and it is still possible in the middle of all this to see an older chinese person struggling with an overloaded bicycle collecting waste paper.!!!!

A shopping area surrounded by malls and night clubs :)

A clock tower stands in middle to remember War times. A lot shops and restaurants in area. Was nice to just sit and watch young Chinese in their outfits. Mostly university students roaming around in groups and very eager to chat and get involved with foreigners to try their little English.

One can shop at branded outlets or the Chinese version of originals :)

Overall a nice square to sit for a while

The actual monument in the square celebrates the liberation of China from Japanese occupation, it is small and dwarfed by the surrounding neon covered high rise stores. If it's shopping you want and you are in Chongqing then, if price is not a problem you are in the right place.The surrounding area is the centre for "expats" nightlife , so you will find bars ( a rare commodity in this part of the world) and restaurants galore. Enjoy!

The picture posted is not jiefangbei but that of hongyadong. Jiefangbei bei is the center of downtown chongqing. It is marked by a clock tower at its center which they call the liberation monument. This monument is surrounded by very tall modern buildings housing high-end shops like lui Vuitton, Gucci etc . It is supposed to be a park-like pedestrian lane with flowers and trees, but cars still pass thru it. There are many many people in the area. We went there during a chinese holiday. Be careful when you walk because you might step on phlegm. The Chinese has a bad habit of clearing their throats loudly and spitting anywhere. Even girls and women do it. It's disgusting.
