Hongya Cave

This site once was a military fortress and then became the first and most advanced pier in ancient China. Nowadays, it has been turned into a 75-metre tall building on the margin of the Jialing River packed with many restaurants, cafes, temples and craft stalls. When the sun sets, the building illuminates the surroundings, making them look dream-like.

Do & See

A few of the city's major scenic spots include the Jiefangbei and Chaotian Gate Plaza, the Three Gorges Museum and the Ciqikou ancient town. The highlight of the touring section of the Three Gorges is also located in Chongqing.
