Lots of local snacks on offer, problem is that they are all similar to each other. I recommend the Indian sweet roti. It was delicious. Good place for souvenirs. Long Street but fun. Has it's own MTR station

This town is a rebuild from what Chongqing used to be in the past (at least that's what they told me). It actually looks too new to feel traditional. Still, it's really cool to see. I enjoyed walking there, searching for nice souvenirs (#1 place...More

The shopping district included many long winded streets, providing family run local delights, eateries, shopping stalls, restaurants, boutique, jewellery, etc. You can easily spend half day there. There were many photo...More
