  3. 3. CHAPTER ONE - ABOUT CHONGQING Chongqing is the economic hub of southwest China and the fourth Municipality in China (after Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin). Chongqing is situated in the east of southwest China, about 2,500km up the Yangtze River from Shanghai. Under its jurisdiction there are 40 districts, cities and counties. It covers an area of 82,000 square kilometres with a total population of 31 million. An estimated 6 million people live in urban Chongqing city. Downtown Chongqing lies at the point where the Yangtze River and the Jialing River merge. Known as the Mountain City, the whole city is built against a backdrop of hills and rivers, characterized by zig-zagging roads and overlapping houses. It is also known as one of the four Furnace Cities for its hot summers and the Foggy City for its misty winters. CHAPTER TWO – THE CITY HUBS Chongqing has five major business and shopping precincts - the oldest and most important being Jiefangbei situated within what remains of the Old Walled City. Shapingba, Yangjiaping, Guanyinqiao and Nanping complete the picture with large Walking Malls, Shopping Plazas, Hotels and Business and Trade Centres. In each of these centres you’ll find restaurants, bars and boutiques, cinemas and many other attractions some unique to each. 1. The focal point of Jiefengbei 解放碑 is the cross shaped Walking Mall which radiates from the Liberation Monument. The area has been the site of a massive modern makeover in recent years and boasts a plethora of new and huge Shopping Malls, International Hotels and Business Towers and high rise apartment blocks. 2. Shapingba 沙坪坝 with its massive Three Gorges Square 三峡广场 San Xia Guang Chang at its centre is the second most popular business and shopping hub and home to several of the city’s oldest middle schools and universities. 3. Yangjiaping 杨家坪 completes the triangle with one of the largest round-abouts that encompasses much of the shopping precincts. Yangjiaping is home to several important colleges and universities as well as the city zoo. 4. Guanyinqiao 观音桥 in Jiangbei District is the only large centre on the north side of the city and includes Yang Guang Cheng or Sunshine City with the massive Paradise Walk Shopping Mall 北城天街 Bei Cheng Tian Jie and the Golden Resources Hotel 金源大酒店 and the Underground Entertainment Mall ‘Sleepless City’ 金源不夜城 amongst its attractions. 5. Nanping 南坪 as its name suggest is on the south bank of the Yangtze River and is a vital southern transport, trade and business centre with much the same to offer as all the 3 Copyright 2008.

  4. 4. other hubs with the edition of Underwater World and several large Trade and Exhibition Centres. CHAPTER THREE – CITY TRANSPORT Chongqing has a diverse and comprehensive transport system which includes some interesting modes of transport found in very few of China’s major cities. A visit here should include a ride by cable car across either the Yangtze or Jialing rivers. TAXI 出租车 Flag fall Y5 (Y1.20 per km) is the cheapest of any major city of this size. The distinctive ‘bee’ yellow of the regular Chongqing taxi is a rather appropriate colour as they work hard to move people around the city. Beware of the swarms that hover around bus stops or stations, especially after dark looking for multiple long distance fares which don’t require using the meter. Chongqing’s taxi fleet is gradually being updated with the introduction of the new Suzuki this year, which offers a very smooth and comfortable ride. More recently a larger White Taxi was introduced to service the Airport and can most likely be found around major International Hotels. Tips: Taxis will often be hard to find from about 3.00pm until 5.00pm which is when they are returning to base to refuel for a change of shift and unless you are going where they are headed you may have to wait for some time and fight for your turn. BUS 公交车 Three grades of buses service the city and prices range from Y1 to Y3 for across town routes. The smaller 700 buses and some of the small 800 buses run as late as midnight. The cheaper buses tend to be very crowded mornings and evenings as people commute to work but are less so at noon and later in the evenings. Frequently updated city maps, Y5 from street stalls, have most bus routes clearly marked. IC Cards can now be used on the majority of bus routes. Cards which offer discounted fares can be purchased for Y20 non-refundable deposit from IC Card booths/sales centres that are located at larger bus stops and interchanges. MOTOBIKES and THREE WHEELERS 摩托车和三轮车 Motorbikes are an ideal mode of transport for this city of narrow windy streets that often choke with traffic jams. Fares are negotiable for one or two passengers. 4 Copyright 2008. All Rights Reserved. Chongqing Expat Club www.cqexpat.com
  5. 5. LIGHT RAIL 轻轨 The Qinggui or Light Rail is a combination of above ground monorail and underground metro system that will one day in the future alleviate much of the road congestion caused by buses and taxis. This first line runs partway along the Jialing River and has become a popular sightseeing ride for both locals and tourists. Running from Jiaochangkou on the peninsular to Xinshancun in the western suburbs, this line covers tourist attractions such as the Peoples Great Hall, Three Gorges Museum, the new Olympic Sports Centre at Yuanjiagang and the Zoo at Yangjiaping. New lines currently under construction will run across town from the airport in the north to Nanping in the south crossing both the big rivers. Another is scheduled for Shapingba District. In all 7 lines are planned in the years ahead. The service is clean, efficient, punctual and uses a swipe card fare system with a maximum fare is Y5 CABLE CAR 索道 Two pairs of Cable Car cross each of the Rivers that carve up the city and are an excellent way to get a bird’s eye view of them both. Yangtze River Cable Car - Y2 each way This is located on Xin Hua Road opposite the bus stop not far from the Metropolitan Plaza and up the hill from the Carrefour. Southbank terminal is in Nanan District just above Nanbin Road at Long Men Hao Docks. It’s a short walk up the hill to Shangxinjie with buses to Nanshan Park or down the hill to Nanbin Lu. Tip: some maps are unclear as to the street entrance of the Jiefangbei terminal Jialing River Cable Car - Y2 each way This is located on Cang Bai Road across from Hongyadong with the northern terminal in Jinagbei Cheng where there is very little to see as this section of the city is currently being redeveloped to house a new entertainment complex. BRT 快速公交车 Bus Rapid Transit is a new express bus service initiative of the Central Government for several major cities in China. The first and rather limited route through Daping opened in January 2008 and the buses are distinguished by bright orange on white paint work. Line 801 Shapingba to Jiangbei opened recently. Line 888 Shapingba to Yuanjiagang due to open soon (Shapingba Zhan Xi Lu to YiKe YiYuan) 5 Copyright 2008. All Rights Reserved. Chongqing Expat Club www.cqexpat.com
  6. 6. FERRY 渡轮 Two ferry services cross the river from Chaotianmen to Nanbin Road in Nanan District. Please refer city map. ESCALATOR 电动扶梯 Chongqing is home to one of the longest escalators in Asia. Located in Lianglukou on the corner of Chang Jiang Yi Road it descends to the Train and Bus stations at Caiyuanba saving pedestrians a long climb up or down the stairs. ELEVATOR 电梯 This elevator is located beside the Chongqing Daily Newspaper on the corner on Xin Hua Road at Chuqimen beside the Chuqimen stairs. Lower access is from Jiefang Xi Road. AIRPORT SHUTTLE SERVICE 机场往返车 This is a 24 hour service from the Airport to Shangqingsi on Meizhuanxiao Street very close to the CAAC office. From Shangqingsi the service departs every thirty minutes on the hour and half hour and picks up at the CAAC office in Haiguan and the Yutong Hotel opposite Jiazhou California Gardens. From the airport the service leaves when full and drops off at all three locations. CHAPTER FOUR – ATTRACTIONS 1. Night Lights By night Chongqing looks like a giant fairyland. The entire city is lit up by a sea of coloured lights reflecting in the waters of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers. There are several vantage points for observing this mountain city by both day and night: the Red Star Pavilion 红星亭 Hong Xing Ting in the Pi Pa Shan Park 枇杷山公园 Pi Pa Shan Gong Yuan and the Kan Sheng Pavilion 瞰胜楼 Kan Sheng Lou in Goose Neck Park 鹅岭公园 E Ling Gong Yuan in Yuzhong District 渝中区 Yuzhong Qu but the favourite is One Tree Hill 一棵树 Yi Ke Shu on South Mountain 南山 Nan Shan. 2. Pipa Shan Park 枇杷山公园 Pi Pa Shan Gong Yuan Pipa Shan Park, with an elevation of 345 metres is situated on Mount Pipa, lies in the centre of Chongqing and commands a magnificent view of the city proper. Once a private garden owned by Wang Lingji, the chairman of the Sichuan Government from 1911 to 1949, it was 6 Copyright 2008. All Rights Reserved. Chongqing Expat Club www.cqexpat.com
  7. 7. confiscated after liberation in 1949 and extended into a park by the People's Government. Location - Yuzhong District 渝中区 Zhong Shan Er Road, Yuzhong District, Chongqing 重庆市渝中区中山二路 3. Goose Neck Park 鹅岭公园 E Ling Gong Yuan Located on the ridge of Mount Eling in the Yuzhong District, the park is so named because its topography resembles a goose neck. Mount Eling in central Chongqing is an ideal spot with a commanding view of Chongqing Port, where the Yangtze and Jialing rivers join forces. The park is less than two kilometers from either river with one flowing on the left, and the other on the right and is one of the premier spots for enjoying the night lights of Chongqing. Location - Yuzhong District 渝中区 Chang Jiang Yi Road, Yuzhong District, Chongqing 重庆市渝中区长江一路 4. One Tree Hill 一棵树 Yi Ke Shu This scenic lookout located in the middle of South Mountain 南山 Nan Shan offers a panoramic view of the Yuzhong peninsular of Chongqing and the Yangtze River. When night falls, it is one of the most popular sightseeing destinations in Chongqing and provides an unforgettable experience of how beautiful Chongqing night view can be. Location – Nanan District 南岸区 Mount Nan Shan, Nanan District, Chongqing 重庆市南岸区南山 5. Red Cliff Cave 洪崖洞 Hong Ya Dong Constructed using the style of traditional local buildings, this comprehensive resort style complex has something for everyone. Overlooking the Jialing River, it features hotel accommodation, a theatre, ancient-looking restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, crafts and local foods. Spread over 13 levels it flows down the steep southern bank of the Jialing River just beneath the Cable Car and is serviced by both elevators and escalators with parking in the basement and access from both the upper and lower levels.

  8. 8. Lower level: 88 Jiabin Road, Yuzhong District, Chongqing 重庆渝中区嘉滨路 88 号 6. The Guild Hall 湖广会馆 Hu Guang Hui Guan This grand building complex was first built in 1759 during the Qing Dynasty under the regime of Emperor Qianlong and was extended around 100 years later. The Guild Halls were originally built for the immigrants who moved here from Hunan, Hubei, Guangdong and Guangxi Provinces. At the end of the Ming Dynasty and the beginning of the Qing Dynasty the population in Sichuan had declined dramatically and the rulers of that time ordered people living in the Hu and Guang areas to move here to cultivate the fertile land. This was called the Huguang Filling of Sichuan Movement. Historic records and artifacts of that period are on display and local operas are regularly held here. Dong Shui Men is located just outside and is one of the most intact of the city’s old gates. Location - Yuzhong District 渝中区 4 Dong Shui Men Zheng Street, Yuzhong District, Chongqing 重庆市渝中区东水门正街 4 号 7. Chao Tian Men 朝天门 Located at the very tip of Yuzhong peninsular, overlooking the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers, Chao Tian Men faces the east, looking downstream towards Nanjing, once the capital of the Middle Kingdom. In 1891, Chao Tian Men was opened as a foreign trading port, but in 1927 the old city gate was pulled down to make way for the construction of the dock. Today the Chao Tian Men Passenger Transportation Dock and the recently built Chao Tian Men Square are ideal places to view the ever changing river scene and the variety of water craft that ply the rivers today. Location - Yuzhong District 渝中区 Chao Tian Men, Yuzhong District, Chongqing 重庆市渝中区朝天门 8. Arhat Temple 罗汉寺 Luo Han Si Built around 1,000 years ago, Luo Han Si is one of the major Buddhist Temples in the region. At its peak this temple was home to 70 monks. Nowadays this number has dropped considerably but nonetheless the temple is still popular with local worshippers. The temple's most notable feature is its entrance flanked by rock carvings, many of which have survived the ravages of time, the Cultural Revolution and pollution.

The Hall is constructed along a central axis, and the north and south wings are symmetrically arranged on the flanks. The Great Hall was completed in April 1954 and is one of the landmarks of Chongqing architecture. Covering an area of 18500 square meters, this five-story rotunda is 65m high and 46m in diameter, spacious enough to seat over 4200 people and slightly reminiscent of the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. In 1997, when Chongqing was designated as a municipality directly under the central government, a modern square was built in front of the Hall where you’ll see locals dancing every evening. Location - Yuzhong District 渝中区 175 Ren Min Road, Yuzhong District, Chongqing 重庆市渝中区人民路 175 号 10. Red Crag Village 红岩村 Hong Yan Cun Site of the Chongqing Office of CPC Eighth Route Army and CPC South Bureau during the Anti-Japanese War period, this small family farm was once the home of Rao Guamo who dedicated it to the Communist cause. For more than 8 years it was the National Headquarters of the Communist Party. Rao Guamo’s thatched roof cottage has been restored as a museum along side a small school, the command headquarters and other buildings, the largest of which is a museum dedicated to the war effort. Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai and many other prominent Communist leaders also found respite here from the stress of leadership and struggle, finding time to enjoy the gardens, do some farming, write poetry and prose and even fall in love. Rao Guamo died in 1960 and is buried on the site of her former home. Entrance free Location – Shapingba District 沙坪坝区 13 Hong Yan Cun, Hua Long Qiao, Shapingba District 重庆市沙坪坝区化龙桥红岩村 13 号 11.

In the dying years of World War II it was the site of the "Sino-US Institute for Cooperation in Special Technology". Location - Shapingba District 沙坪坝区 Lie Shi Mu, Shapingba District, Chongqing 重庆市沙坪坝区烈士墓 14. Ci Qi Kou 瓷器口 Ci Qi Kou has been an important commercial port for the shipment of porcelain since the Ming Dynasty. Perched on the south bank of the Jialing River in Shapingba District, this ancient town with a history of more than 1,000 years was built in 998AD during the reign of Emperor Xiangping of the North Song Dynasty. Her narrow stone streets and stairways lined with traditional tile and timber homes are often crowded these days. Streets are lined with colourful arts and crafts, galleries and bars, teahouses and opera, temples and fortune tellers, food and fashion. On Friday afternoons retired Opera singers still entertain for the cost of a cup of tea on the theatre stage of the Jialing School Compound. Location – Shapingba District 沙坪坝区 10 Copyright 2008.

Location - Nanan District 南岸区 South Mountain Nan Shan, Nanan District, Chongqing 重庆市南岸区南山 17. Foreigner Street 洋人街 Yang Ren Jie A remarkable blend of east and western culture, this site evokes some sense of nostalgia and refreshment for visitors from home and abroad. A stroll through the area will take you through a Japanese village, a Korean neighborhood and a European riverside walk with horse drawn carriages. A cluster of residences epitomize Chinese traditional architectural style and even what appears to be a reminiscent of the Communist Revolution complete with song and dance reenactments. Creatively revised classical slogans are pretty amusing yet equally enlightening. Crooked houses and world record breaking restroom are very impressive as well. Several shops, restaurants and bars are operated by expats drawing many more to the familiar sights, sounds and flavours of home.

  15. 15. 29. Fishing City 钓鱼城 Diao Yu Cheng Established in 1242 Diao Yu Cheng is a fortified compound covering 2.5 sq kms in the Diao Yu Mountains on the southern shore of the Jialing River. It overlooks the junction of two tributaries of the Jialing just outside Heyang Town in Hechuan County. In 1258 the Mongols launched a three-way attack on the Song Dynasty, and in February the next year Diao Yu City found itself besieged. The Song army mounted a valiant counterattack that lasted for 36 years and made worldwide military history by withstanding such a strong enemy with such a weak force. This prompted some European historians to laud Diao Yu Cheng as the "Mecca of the East" and "Where God broke his whip". The ruins of the ancient battlefield of Diao Yu Cheng are well preserved.
