It is a historically significant site. But I was disappointed to find a commericalised monument. The clock in the clock tower is a overseas brand. Nevertheless it is worth the visit not for the monument but the shopping around it.

The Jiefang Monument is surrounded by malls, stores and bars on a / the Pedestrian Street. It's a great location to enjoy the night life. Comparable to the Times Square in New York.

There is nothing to see nor to take photographs.. When the soon to be famous red stick building is finished, there will be at least something to memorize.

there's nothing monumental about this monument itself, but this part of down is just a lovely sparkly sensation at night and is worth coming out for a visit and people watching

It's just a clock tower in the middle of a high-traffic shopping area. It's more or less the focal point of the Jiefangbei shopping district, but there's nothing historical about it. If you're in Jeifangbei at night, come take a picture in front of the monument because it's kind of cool. But don't bother going out of your way to see it because there's nothing really to see.
