Honya Cave =named Hong ya dong. One side overlooking river, other side the rocks. A lot of foreigners come here to wait for the Yangzhe river cruise. Nearby small local rstaurants with very good food. No tourists come here because of very local character. Only Chinese speaking but very friendly

All sorts of little stalls selling the same crap and the same snacks. Only the buildings look authentic (but they probably aren't ) It looks nice though

Some good bargains to be had and haggling is often possible. Items are often good quality with not so much 'tat'. Good for traditional buys for gifts. Lovely clothes and accessories. Some prices are much more than others so check the exchange rate. Keep belongings to yourself and avoid Saturday as its packed. Large car park by try not to... More

They call it a cave because the trinket shops are inside a section that has been dug into the hill and completely enclosed by the rock on one side and the food shops on the other, so don't expect to do any spelunking. If taking the monorail to get here, get off at Xiaoshizi (intersection of line 6 and 1)... More

We visited this historic, river front 'cave' without knowing that over the years, the area has been commercialized, complete with highly Westernized bars & restaurants. There is shopping mall & even dotted with little shops on several floors, but one does not need to linger around them. Instead one could choose to follow the sign (towards the river front) &...

It's located right in the city Centre, by the river. Awesome night city scenery and beautiful lighting. Lots of cafe, pubs and restaurants. A great place to get your dinner. The only problem here is as there are many people, and there are too little stairs available for one to get to the difference floors. Not to mention the lift,... More

I didn't know what to expect here, I was just looking for a place to have lunch. The 9th floor has international restaurants, ironically we ate at a very good Chinese restaurant. The forth floor is a Chinese food market with some very interesting sights and smells. The lower levels are souvenir shops, the lower you get, they get more... More

Hong Ya Dong is a good place to go in between museum visits or other sight seeing. The building is impressive at night- there are lights all over the roofs and it is quite nice- however, you do not get the full effect if you're standing IN Hong Ya Dong. If you like shopping and you're hoping to find something... More

This place looks good from the outside but it has far too many Chinese jewellery shops and poor quality souvenirs and the overall decoration is poor compared with the beautifully restored CiQi Kou village. We did find some very authentic noodle shops and there are plenty of hot pot restaurants. Quite easy to get to from major hotels but it... More

Great place for shopping to get souvenirs and relax. Neat architecture with certain floors turning out to be streets on different levels (4th and 11th). Also nice view of the river. Please don't forget to bargain while shopping.
