“GREAT SPOT TO VIEW CHONGQING”
Review of Chaotianmen Square

Chaotianmen Square
Ranked #4 of 16 Tours in Chongqing
Attraction details
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Chaotianmen Square is a great place to start your tour of the city. It is where 2 rivers meet and you will not only get good views of activity on the famous Yangtze River, but also this huge city built on hills. Nearby is the Exhibition Centre where you can see a large scale model of the city and surrounding suburbs/hills to really get your bearings. My guide in Chongqing for 2 days was Kaining Zhou who spoke excellent English and I highly recommend. His email address is zhoukn@aliyun.com. As the city is not really on the tourist circuit, English language and signage is not there like in Shanghai or Beijing so a guide is essential if you have limited time.

we danced there and look down the Yangtze River and Jialing River from the square.

And of course you could choose to down to the square to the beach. you also could sit on the steps.

It is very beautiful in night coz there are lots of lights.

There are so many steps there, crazy.

But it is the best place to watch the Yangtze River and Jialing River.

We took Yangtze Cruise from here.

Good place to start your visit in Chongqing. I recommend you to go there in the evening when you can see plenty of shining lights and Chinese people dancing at the square. This is one of the only places in Chongqing downtown with umbrella selling hawkers. No need to spend time more than half an hour.
