Wide variety of traditional food available and lots of interesting shopping. There is also a concert hall which puts on a good variety show.

We spent about an hour here which was enough. It was fascinating walking around and seeing all of the shops and stores. Live scorpions, stinking hotpots so brutal the smell will make you gag, comb shops (and people dressed up as combs?!), cheap souvenirs, bakeries,...More

Let's be honest: most of the "old towns" are basically shopping malls presented as if this is how people used to live. And it may well be that many of these are representative, but the main purpose of these places is to sell goods. That...More

About 30-40 min by car/taxi outside out Chongqing, it is worth the visit. Tons of shops, traditional & more contemporary shops, you can find pretty much everything. Great place to buy souvenirs. For a better experience, go early in the morning (9h - 10h) as...More

Very crowded area but many shops selling the same things. If you enjoy crowds shovingyou rudely (and the local Chinese do that extremely well) and end up buying nothing, then you should not miss this place.

We toured this village and found it very quant and lively. We had the best coffee at a restaurant on the first floor. The market sells many local food and handicraft items and is lively and entertaining. Worth a visit!

I can't say there's really anything special about this place, just a lot more Chinese shops to visit, but if you've never been here you have to at least do it once.
