Very busy, but it was such fun. The chefs making purple noodles on the pavement!! Got a bargain too - a high quality thick pashmina - as it turned cold.

This place is a bit far from the city. Took us about half an hour . Worth a visit but the crowd is overwhelming . T

Well worth a wander through this part of town but it can be overwhelming for those who are not fans or large crowds. Excellent and lots of places to eat from sushi to even a kebab place. Bit saddening to see sellers with the animals in tiny plastic balls clearly dying in their own filth. Don't miss out on all... More

It was really crowded on Saturday. Really hard to get to photo with few people. The village would be more charming if it was less crowded. Lots of snacks were sold along the way. Good to try out. The walk way by the river was under construction.

This is a very traditional old town with a lot of traditional restaurants and shops offering food/snack, art, performance and so on. It is a good location to spend a day.

Don't come here expecting the shops to still sell what they sold 100 or more years ago. This is a tourist area, and as such what is sold here is what sells well with tourists, whether that be kitsch, food, or other entertainment. The entire area has been rebuilt from what was while trying to maintain the exterior look. If... More

Ci Qi Kou is right on the subway line and about a 15 minute walk from the nearest stop which makes it definitely worth a half-day trip from central Chongqing. We ventured off the main street for a bit of a break from the crowds (don't go on a weekend if you don't like crowds) and went uphill into the... More

This an attraction where food and cool drinks and traditions are in abundance; from beef jerky, icy lemon drinks, blocks of congealed hotpot (huoguo), lollipops, nut-filled sweets being pounded by hand, silver smiths working and so much more. Have a good tourist guide with you, ask questions and enjoy the many foods on offer. This is a popular attraction and... More
