If you're in Chongqing, this place can't be missed. It's a part of the city where modern construction hasn't taken over, and the older architecture really brings life to the place. There's stalls galore selling all sorts of stuff. It might be a bit tricky finding out exactly what some of the foods are unless you or someone with you... More

This is one of our itinerary before joining our Yangtze River cruise, it was very busy full of tourists but we managed to avoid the crowded shops by going to the pagoda. It was worth it as we were the only ones there, it was a very steep climb to the top but so worth it as we were rewarded... More

Although the name is Porcelain Village, but the item sold do not emphasis on porcelain.... Basically it was an ancient town left in Chongqing. Shopping is good if you want to look for souvenir to bring home (however the souvenir does not need to represent Chongqing). For food wise you can try the grill lamb or cuttle fish stick. For...

There is a alot of people traffic in this attraction. If you aren't used to it you may need to set expectations ahead of time so that you aren't too shocked. It was really eye opening and interesting to see the little shops and the building architecture. Very unique and seemed like ancient china. There are food stalls everywhere and... More

A must to go place whenever I have a friend or family visits in CQ. Great place to buy souvenir, plenty shops and of course they have the street food vendors. Now they also have some kind of theatrical opera show thingy which plays Sichuan/Beijing opera (Don't really know which one). One thing is that it is very crowded during... More

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.
