  • 进去的人太多了,得排好久的队,一下地铁,就进入了人海,有很多人乱过马路,乞讨卖艺,警察就站在边上呆着,假期一定不能去这个景点 
  • 这里都是重庆的风俗文化,很小的东西很大的趣味,小面酸辣粉先制作很有趣,窄窄的巷子,上上下下很好玩,期间人们的住所让你感受到向往,小确幸 
  • & never eat the same dish. That's what's said of Chongqing & this area does its best to represent that. Snack your way around the busy alleys, see noodles being made, maps sauce in huge vats & Sichuan...  more »

  • Very easy to get to on the subway, just a short walk from the station. We went on Monday morning. It was crowded to the point that walking and not bumping into people was a chore. I can't imagine how horribly crowded this place would be on a weekend. Basically, the attraction is a few streets with old looking buildings selling tacky crap. People clap these fake hands, that cause an unbearable racket, to get shoppers attentions. That, along with all the other noise, made this a ghastly adventure. The shear phoniness and tackiness interest wears off quickly, and all that's left is the worst aspects of Chinese tourism. Why two stars? First I had to use a toilet. We walk off the main Street, and immediately it's a pleasant place, without the crowds or the tackiness. We pay 1¥ to use a ladies toilet, and it was all very pleasant. Second, we went to a temple on a hill near the end of the street ( sign posted), that was quiet and pleasant.
  • This is an amazing place. Love the layout of the entire village.
  • Good place with traditional environment
  • Nice place for buying souvenirs and postcards. A little bit expensive.
  • It's a nice place, but just too many people on holidays.
