The Three Places You Must Visit in Chongqing

Once we mention the topic of Chongqing, we must think about its spicy food. There are three places you must have a visit when you have a journey in Chongqing.

Hongya Cave

The first place is Hongya Cave. Hongya Cave usually refers to a group of buildings facing the Jialing River and backing to cliffs. There is a waterfall beside the cave with a path from top to the lower street level. The buildings nearby are pretty unique. And it is a spot built by the city for shopping, eating and enjoy some Chongqing culture along the river. The view of the river and the northern side of the city is nice. Also, from the bridge next to it, the view to the Cave building and the city skyline behind is very nice too. Whats more, at night the buildings light up and the views over the river are amazing.


Ci Qi Kou (Porcelain Village)

The protected cultural state and ancient village of Ci Qi Kou is located on the banks of the Jia Ling River. It covers a fairly large area, of slightly over 290 acres and is located 14 km west of Chongqing City. The roots of Ci Qi Kou, once called Long Yin, have been traced back as far as 1,700 years. Over the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368-1911), the village was famous for its porcelain production. Thus today and due to the English meaning of its name, it is often referred to as porcelain Village.
The place is buzzing! There are old stores selling food and drinks of all descriptions to catering many tourists who come to view Chinese food. And there are many cute cafes and quaint small bars with a guitarist softly crooning Chinese pop songs. Everyone in the place seems to be in a happy mood.


Three Gorges Museum

The Three Gorges area is an archaeologically and anthropologically highly important area of southwest China. There are areas reserved for rotating exhibits that are specifically related to the Three Gorges area. The exhibits are very good on archaeology and anthropology, but the topics relating to the relocation/resettlement of affected individuals in the region take a blatantly pro-government stance with no recognition that not everyone was so positive about the building of the dam, which would make the entire museum a more complete examination of the construction and inundation effects.

The museum is easily reachable and the entrance to the museum is otherwise free.Besides, if you are a photographer, the museum is also just across the street from the People's Assembly Hall which can be a nice place to take pictures.
