A new building on an old site, this is one of the premier tourist stops in Chongqing. Dining and shopping is best here.
The whole area is captivating, the history, the unique structures against the cliffs high above the river. But check the prices of your purchases, including meals, before you place your order, or you might end up paying ten dollars (58 RMB) for a bowl of meatless soup.

Mostly tourist stuff, not really quality items. International food is an attraction for some foreigners. The cramped, local, food street is a good reason to go. Easy to get to from the pedestrian street at the monument.
