    Certain that it is neither Beijing nor Shanghai, but night Chingqing becomes a city that mixes large skyscrapers, River and mountain in the skyline, which makes it unique... the Center, taking metro we arrive at 临江门 (linjiangmen output 2D or 2 c) and just walk 100 meters to get to the monument of jiefangbei, surrounded by skyscrapers with beautiful illuminations and around European stores more faces , type Gucci... always starbucks there is in the area to buy souvenir of the City Cup... very near there is the 八一路 Street (bayilu) that although only seems full of food stalls itinerant Chinese, if you look well all have unnsegundo floor with a terrace outdoors, and in general very cozy... also there are shops as a MINISO for fans of the gadgets at good prices and nice design...

    The historical significance is well outside the visible landmark of the city centre, I don't know. The surrounding streets are pedestrian-oriented Street cool into the HEA

    Although dwarfed by the buildings around it, I like this monument and I think it is good to commemorate history.  more »
