A spot built by the city for shopping, eating and enjoy some Chongqing culture along the river. It's built vertically along the caves. It has an equivalent of about 15 floors. So when the elevators are busy, climbing the stairs will be a work out. Trust me, we did that the hard way by going up on foot. The view... More

I suppose there was a cave there long ago, but now it's 11+ story shopping mall build on a cliff face. The first few floors are the usual Chinese trinket shops: jade, swords, etc. 4th floor has shops for snacks and cheap, junk souvenirs. The top floors are a mix of restaurants and bars. Not worth seeing in itself, but... More

If you wanna see the city, but don't have much time, then go to Hongya Cave. Chongqing city is all about food, mountain, river, food, high-rise buildings and again food. For 2-3 hours in this place you can feel what is Chongqing

Unlike what the name suggests, it's more like a shopping arcade and market place... but very good at it. Must visit, if you're at Chongqing.

A classic looking building. There are restaurants there. Cant really see the nice view of it when you are in that place. Its better to take a boat trip and the view should be better.

Honya Cave =named Hong ya dong. One side overlooking river, other side the rocks. A lot of foreigners come here to wait for the Yangzhe river cruise. Nearby small local rstaurants with very good food. No tourists come here because of very local character. Only Chinese speaking but very friendly

All sorts of little stalls selling the same crap and the same snacks. Only the buildings look authentic (but they probably aren't ) It looks nice though

Some good bargains to be had and haggling is often possible. Items are often good quality with not so much 'tat'. Good for traditional buys for gifts. Lovely clothes and accessories. Some prices are much more than others so check the exchange rate. Keep belongings to yourself and avoid Saturday as its packed. Large car park by try not to... More

They call it a cave because the trinket shops are inside a section that has been dug into the hill and completely enclosed by the rock on one side and the food shops on the other, so don't expect to do any spelunking. If taking the monorail to get here, get off at Xiaoshizi (intersection of line 6 and 1)... More

We visited this historic, river front 'cave' without knowing that over the years, the area has been commercialized, complete with highly Westernized bars & restaurants. There is shopping mall & even dotted with little shops on several floors, but one does not need to linger around them. Instead one could choose to follow the sign (towards the river front) &...
