“Boat ride for beautiful view at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

I don't have time to walked around this place, because my local friend just lead me to the boat. Pay for the ticket, and we rushed to upstairs deck. Lots of local people. The city view from here is awesome.. Just a short trip, but i think is worthed.

“Cheap rubbish for sale with a rude attitude”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

Chongqing was the biggest disappointment that I have ever experienced. As a western, it was extremely difficult to get a taxi althought locals took them easily in front of your eyes. In other words, people are rude to you, some even spit to ground when you pass them by. Others stare at you like you where some kind of an odd attraction. Chongqing was the first vacation spot from where I returned home with an empty bag. I don`t recommend Chongqing to any tourist. What an awful place!

“excellent shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

Chaotianmen has everything! I love shopping in this area as you can find everything from knock off victorias secret bras to meat on a stick. This is a place for bargain shopping and all day people watching. I particularly like the fabric market! You can take a taxi here, or you can take the 151bus to hong ya dong and walk away from the water towards the white building for fun shopping.

“A must-see for Chongqing visitors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2013

Chaotianmen isn't what it used to be at all, but it's still something you have to see if you visit Chongqing. Try to go in the evening, get some dinner at one of the restaurants there, and then pay for a boat ride on the river. The boat ride is a total rip-off, but it's the one way you're going to get the best view of this magnificent city. Do NOT pay for dinner on the boat; you'll be way overcharged and you're guaranteed to get the worst food in the city.
