I thought there would be many old things to look out for. However, many of the shops are selling similar items.

Lots of local food stalls and interesting setting but not much to hold our attention. Very touristy.

a short street filled with hawkers, shops and people. Take about 15 minutes and then go to another street nearby

A crowded street full of food shops and Chinese tourists. A waste of time and boring. Move on and give it a miss

Accessible by subway. Lovely place. A lot to see and buy. Prices of different shops are almost the same. Public toilets conditions quite acceptable to China standard.

What a great experience. This is a network of very narrow pedestrian streets in the old part of Chongqing lined with small shops and food vendors and Chinese bistros/bars and crowded with people. It is is very busy and can be a little overwhelming but was a very interesting and satisfying cultural and shopping experience. A must-see in the city.

We visited Ciqikou Old Town on a national Chinese holiday, Sweep the Tomb holiday, and the streets were crowded, crowded so much you could hardly move at times. After navigating the crowds for a strenuous hour we gave up and sat on a restaurant balcony for an hour watching the crowd inch up and down the streets. It was right... More
