“Monument between luxury shops”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Not worth to make a special trip to see it but if you're in the town then you can't miss it. There are lots of luxury shops around the monument and you can feel specially at the night little bit like you are in New York!!

“Bright lights and fancy stores”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Near the memorial there are luxurious shops such as LV, Gucci and stuff like that.
We were there in the evening and it looked really nice, but nothing special....
If you have limited time in Chongqing, I would skip this square and memorial...

“Liberation monument”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This tower is a symbol of the liberation of chongqing from the Japanese. It is located in the center of jiefangbei, the downtown of the city. The plaza is full of local tourists. This is supposed to be a park-like walkway but cars still cross. Surrounding the monument are tall modern buildings housing high-end brands like Gucci , loui vuitton, ferragamo etc. there is also KFC, Starbucks hagebdaz.

I guess the monument has emotional significance to the locals but other than that , it has not much architectural or aesthetic value.
