  • Stepped from the entrance, are lined up on both sides of the narrow streets of hundreds of years ago. Street still variously beating noodles and pastry shops are lined up and the rather wide streets still, quite large souvenir shop. Is slow, but too many people feel is not also think China, will be a good experience.

  • This place is a bit far from the city. Took us about half an hour . Worth a visit but the crowd is overwhelming . T 
  • 跑过三山六码头,要算重庆磁器口。去磁器口已经有些时日,但对那里的一草一木、一砖一瓦让人无法忘怀。不宽但又整洁的街巷,林立的店铺,当地人的微笑,美味的小吃,难忘的臭豆腐。仿佛来到了世外桃园,来到了人间天堂。

  • 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.
