Greatest view ever...

good location, restaurants everywhere. Don't bring your water with you, it's very cheap to buy anywhere once you've got there.

The best viewing platforms there are. Amazing and breathtaking views from a high up perspective shows the confluence of the rivers, the central new area of Chongqing and the surrounding areas. A fantastic experience definitely not t be missed if visiting the city. Quite a steep, meandering climb up. Car/bus best mode of transport to get there.

Get a taxi to the top and visit theYikeshu viewing platform for the best views. The only drawback is you must have a clear day.

We wanted to have a liitle bit of nature but not go too far away from the city centre. The botanical garden of Nanshan looked like a good option, being about 30 min taxi ride away. We didn't manage to explain that we wanted to go to the gardens and ended up at the university instead. The trouble when getting... More

To take a whole view of the night scene in Chongqing, here's the place. Local friends say that it is similar to the monutain in Hongkong, where you can watch the Harbour Victoria.

from South Mountain you have a perfect view over the city of Chongqing... especially at night it is very impressive... just a pity that they charge you approximately 5 euro for an "attraction" which takes maybe 15 minutes...

Nan Shan (South mountain) has nothing to compare with the Himalaya or the Alps, but it is a nice place to relax and get some fresh air away from the busy city. It's pretty close to Yuzhong district and you can easily access it through Chongqing Technology and Business University (重庆工商大学), just near the Wu Gongli subway station (line 3).... More
