Take an evening cruise with many of the boats there the price is about 200yuan and above and includes dinner and a nice night scape of Chongqing. Can really give you lasting memories of a great city.

Went here for night view, but all I saw was crowd. There wasn't much view at all. They had changed this place to a marketplace. Not worth a trip, unless you are going to take a boat ride.

We headed to see the joining of the rivers and you have to time things so as not to run into the boats emptying huge numbers of passengers. Very crowded

Chaotianmen is the oldest port in the city. The view gives a view of the city which at night is awesome. River cruises leave the docks

The view on the river is good - if you disregard the mess around. If you don't have to, I don't suggest staying in Chongqing in general - it's a dirty city even comparing to other Chinese cities.

The core of the city, the intersection of the Yangtze River with the Jialing River. Here, old and modern architectures mix in a peculiar combination of styles. Overall, during an average day, the impression is "grey": mist, perhaps pollution too, and concrete buildings. During the...More
