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.

Historical place, very iconic. with some good restaurants, wholesale market, cruise ships. in couple years this area is going to be different. there is a huge building is under construction, which is going to block city's famous "mountainous city spirit" view

Chaotianmen is at the tip of Chongqing where the Yangtze River and Jialing River merge. It's also where the cruise boats dock for embarking and debarking. It used to have really scary steps to climb up but now since the water level raised, it's not...More

There doesn't seem to be much left of Chaotianmen these days as the whole side if the hill leading down to the docks has been bulldozed to make way for a giant complex that looks just a little too much like Singapore's Marina Bay Sands...More
