“A little worse for wear!”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

This was probably one of the most suspect cable cars I've ever been on, you can definitely tell it's a good few years old. It's a nice enough ride over the river on a clear day but it's quite hard to find on the jiefangbei side (I think there is a metro stop nearby though) and leaves you in the middle of nowhere in nanan district south of the yangtze river. You're also likely to be rammed in with as many locals as will fit so try and get to the front of the crowd so you can get on first and get a window!

“Avoid the traffic and see the city in one fell swoop”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

This is part of Chongqing's public transport system and really is the quickest and cheapest way to cross the Yangtze. Locals can use their bus card for only 1.8rmb but visitors must shell out 10rmb for a one way ticket. Still cheap and easily the best view of the city from the Yangtze river (especially at night). Easy to find from the Jiefanbei area, leave the subway, line 1 at Xiaoshizi station exit 5B and you are right outside the subway building. Once on the other side you can enjoy a promenade along the riverside, or make your way uphill to view the city from south mountain (nanshan)
