“Nothing but a clock tower”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had great expectations of this monument, seeing that it was a must visit attraction in every source about Chongqing that we ready. But the minument is just a clock tower in the middle of a huge crowded square. It was seen in less than 30 seconds. Surely you could spend hours in that area as it was the main shopping area.

“terrific area to hang out for an afternoon”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

From the Square you can walk towards Paradise walk. It is an interesting area full of shops and restaurants. There are these small stalls selling delicious local treats, enjoyed nibbling on many of the snacks there, tasty and cheap too. For shopping, the brands like H&M, Gap, Mango, Zara are all there. You can spend a few hours there and later head back to your hotel and realx for the evening

“Window shoppers paradise.....and big spenders delight!!!!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

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 point to see trendy New Generation China”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

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
