Chongqing Chaotianmen, Chongqing

3.3
A peninsula-shaped port (and the oldest in the city), Chongqing Chaotianmen stands at the confluence of the Yangtse and Jialing rivers as an important hub on this golden waterway. Made up of 13 separate docks, the area provides good restaurants and a huge wholesale market with particularly good clothes bargains. Observe the busy river activity from the spacious square, with dock workers handling huge quantities of cargo every day. River cruises, especially at night, give memorable views of the skyline. The site is also accessible via cable car, for a sweeping aerial view of the port.

  • There is a major construction work going on, it was difficult to get to the tip of peninsula. It seems that Mr. Google didn't know that, took me some extra 10 minutes to walk down the hill. It has a good river view with cruising and restaurant boats, but not more than that.
  • gooooood
  • 3 Stars!
  • 重遊此地,依然沒有看到傳說中的陰陽海。 來到上面,視野遼闊多了,的確可看到両江交會,可惜沒有看到陰陽海!!!
  • Very local features, two collections, spectacular.
