Heart of the City

Great place to get a real feel of the city of Chongqing and the newer side/younger generation of China. Shopping, food and people watching.

A large square surrounded by high rises, loaded with high end global retail brands and restaurants. This is a photo stop opportunity if shopping is not on the agenda.

The square is the center of a shopping area, where you can buy your Gucci, Cartier, and Ermenegildo Zegna products if you absolutely have to have them. Pretty lights, good picture taking with all the other tourists at the monument, nice enough buildings (if non-creative architecture), a good place to have a stroll if you like being surrounded by other...

Busy, bustling heart centre of the city. Popular with locals snapping pictures and watching the glitzy colours of world brands and shops, illuminating the area. Statue was once the tallest structure in Chongqing until 1997, but dwarfed by skyscrapers now. Convenient shopping and eating!

This is a constant buzzing hub of Chongqing and you like upscale, international shopping in air conditioned malls, with all the well known brands, this is your spot. At night, many of the sky scrapers are lit up fantastically and that's the time to wander and look up.

Come here at night, feels a lot more lively. A lot of malls and restaurants around the area. Not that far of a trip if you are centrally located in Chongqing.

Jiefangbei Square, also called Liberation Monument Square, probably is one of the best place to watch people and experience one kind of night life in Chongqing for a foreigner. Although surrounded by luxury stores, it is a place for regular people to hang around. Chongqing is famous for pretty girls, and Jiefangbei Square has the reputation that you can see... More
