Jiefang Monument, Chongqing

3.0
Constructed in 1945, Jiefang Monument celebrates China's victory over the Empire of Japan in World War II. Also referred to as Chongqing People’s Liberation Monument, the 27m (88 ft) tower stands proudly over the central business district and sits in a plaza which bustles with entertainment and accommodation for tourists. It’s a busy spot, so exercise patience or arrive early in the morning to snap photos free of pedestrians.
