It can be fun if you’re lucky and don’t have to wait in line for too long. Try to go on a weekday and be early to beat the crowds. But if you find a long queue at the ticket office, skip it. It’s just...More

Not all that great during the day. They really pack you in there. You can cross the river for a shorter line opposite the Hongyadong. Probably better at night when all the lights come on.

Avoid weekends and public holidays, the queue can be an hour of difference compared to normal weekday. Not costly but there’s nothing exciting except for the view of the river. It is still being used as a mode of transport to cross the river.

This is a must try in Chongqing. The queue could be longer during certain hour. But the experience is good.

You can get a nice and interesting view of the city while in the cable car. It can get crowded so expect to wait some time. Overall it's just an average attraction but something everyone who has been to Chongqing should have done once.

You can cross the Yangtze river like people in Chongqing did earlier by the cableway. Now this is mostly for sightseeing.

I am not sure. I took it in the late morning and then walked down the river to an outdoor area that had some wonderful restaurants for lunch.
