Best place for children's clothes

I've done all my best shopping for children's clothes at Chaotianment markets. It's full on Chinese and I'm ususally the only westerner there. Prices are cheap, and the stalls go... read more

This area of Chongqing is something that is very difficult to describe. It is many things. A beautiful night cruise on the rivers where you can take in a georgeous skyline to walking the most populated local shopping area of the city. It takes in a few ancient city gates, street food, new bridges, Buddah Temples, old greeting points for... More

Chaotianmen is at the tip of Chongqing where the Yangtze River and Jialing River merge. It's also where the cruise boats dock for embarking and debarking. It used to have really scary steps to climb up but now since the water level raised, it's not such a climb any longer. Tall buildings now occupied this area but the docks still... More

There doesn't seem to be much left of Chaotianmen these days as the whole side if the hill leading down to the docks has been bulldozed to make way for a giant complex that looks just a little too much like Singapore's Marina Bay Sands Casino. There's no charm now, just a huge construction site.

I've done all my best shopping for children's clothes at Chaotianment markets. It's full on Chinese and I'm ususally the only westerner there. Prices are cheap, and the stalls go on and on. It's crowded and no one speaks English, but everyone has a calculator and I've never had any difficulty communicating. I usually go alone; it's not a fun... More

This shopping area is easily accessed via the Metro system Line 1. There are SO many shops, arranged according to the sort of merchandise being sold (so all the shoe shops are grouped together). It's a great area to people-watch and to see the amazing loads the local porters shift by man-power only. There are LOTS of steps & uneven... More

We got there and this dock is a TOTAL dump. Be careful with the locals trying to offer help to carry your bags. With a broken English they will tell you 15, but when you get to the ship it's 50. Stay away from them! The place is dirty, the only interesting place will be your cruise! Also, by researching... More

Great place to see the two rivers converge although on the upper platform you can only get half way round due to building works so stay on the lower level. Also close to the cable car so walkable for a few sites. You can also watch the river boats going up and down.

Chongqing is a very important city for China because of its economy and strategic location. I went there for a wedding of my Chinese friend and was surprised of the rhythm of that city. Amazing so traditional and fast. To see Yangtze river was very important as I know that that river is very special for every Chinese. Chongqing Chaotianmen... More
