A very interesting place to visit in Chongqing. It is like Jiufen in Taiwan but the streets are much wider with shops and restaurants selling all and sunder. Although a restored ancient town, the place is lovely and worth a visit. Was told by hotel...More

No visit to Chongqing is complete without a trip to Ciqikou. It consists of one main street lined with tourist shops, mainly food, but also trinkets, antiques and porcelain. The old buildings are quaint, but redeveloped recently, so how much of it is genuinely old,...More

Busy, bustling, but nice enough tourist zone. Don't expect any actual old buildings - this "ancient town" was built about the year 2000, and is having its "ancient port" built and opened to the public later this year (2017). Lots of interesting and attractive, if...More

The history of Ci Qi Kou can be traced back for more than 1,700 years. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368-1911), it was famous for its production of porcelain. Hence its name has been changed from Long Yin to Ci Qi Kou which is...More
