Surrounding pedestrian street is the real interest here. Lots of shopping. Several high end stores. Nice area to walk since no cars are permited. Does get a bit crowded on weekends.

This monument's name literally means 'Liberation' to symbolize the activities taking place on Nov 30, 1949 when the Communist Party's army liberates Chongqing from the Kuomintang party. It's surrounded and dwarfed by skyscrapers around it but its influence of the neighbourhood remains.

Here used to be the city center with market and narrow shopping street, but now it is reconstructed into a standard shopping area same as many other cities, but not a single street coffee shop and street artist performer. Basically boring place to visit Althoug...More
