400 year old, restored village and very typical of OLD Chongqing....need to see this place, and close in to downtown.
Ciqikou is a popular place to visit for both local and visiting Chinese tourists. It is also an interesting stop for visiting foreign visitors because of that.
Being stationed in Chongqing for my job for years, I went to Ci Qi Kou a few times with my friends visiting from abroad but more so with my family & dear friends of China. It is always a pleasure to go through the shops to find something interesting and reasonably priced, bite on the sugar "paintings" of dragons &... More
We spent a very enjoyable couple of hours just wandering through the streets, browsing the shops and stalls and generally soaking up the atmosphere. Although it was apparent that the area had been restored and was preserved as a tourist attraction it simply didn't matter. It was a full-on assault on the senses and was a photographer's delight.
If you desired to escape from the modern Chongqing, this is an appropriate place. Ci Qi Kou is an ancient city preserved for tourism purpose. From 2012, the place is easy to go by Metro Line 1 (Red) to Ci Qi Kou station, cheap and quick. The buildings and houses there are well preserved so that you can imagine how... More
The old Cíqìkǒu Ancient Town has a very distinctive, fascinating, dark coloured architectural style dating back to the Ming dynasty (a bloody long time ago). You walk through fascinating cobbled streets past small shops selling...well your guess is as good as mine. Very Chinese!!! Noodley things, cakey things they hit with hammers and catapults (this was a surprise).This and much,... More
Once upon a time Ci Qi Kou Zheng Jie was a gangster nest, that is a long time ago now. Despite being a tourist place, it has retained its ancient charm, here you find the temples, the theatres, the old stuff still made the old way, and, despite the tourists, it still give you the old ancient feeling. The place... More
Sometimes known as the 'Old town' this is a colletion of small stalls-come-shops selling snacks and souvenirs aimed at visitors. That being said there are plenty of things to see and taste which you would not find in the modern parts of Chongqing. After about 100 yards, the main entrance street splits into two; the right leads down to the... More
The fiancé and I love to visit Ci Qi Kou whenever we visit chongqing. He has been going since he was a kid and I have only recently had the pleasure! The food is just great street food. We always start off with the "stick food" - I get candied strawberries and he gets his favorite spicy chicken. If we... More
Good and easy to visit if you haven't seen many old towns - my favorite is still Hoi An in Vietnam. Packed with people and snack shops and cheaply made souvenirs. Fun for people watching and escaping the concrete jungle of Chongqing.
