Interesting old town . The classic mansion with courtyard is well worth a visit . The rest is pretty much the same as many old streets in most Chinese cities . Some fascinating stores and lots of street food . Exceptionally busy at weekend.

Chongqing suffered a great deal of bombing from Japanese warplanes during the Second World War. Not much of old Chongqing has survived. The little village of Ciqikou (now a suburb of fast-expanding Chongqing) is an exception. Then mass tourism was promoted, and what little of...More

The porcelain village is a must see spot in Chongqing! The whole area is like an old town, built from ages ago. The wooden structures house and pebble road bring out the ancient feeling. There are a ton of shops in the Porcelain village. It...More

A very interesting place to visit in Chongqing. It is like Jiufen in Taiwan but the streets are much wider with shops and restaurants selling all and sunder. Although a restored ancient town, the place is lovely and worth a visit. Was told by hotel...More

No visit to Chongqing is complete without a trip to Ciqikou. It consists of one main street lined with tourist shops, mainly food, but also trinkets, antiques and porcelain. The old buildings are quaint, but redeveloped recently, so how much of it is genuinely old,...More

It was an old town with history. But like a lot of old towns in China, Ci Qi Kou is very commercialised. You'd find a lot of stores for souvenirs and snacks there. Not much about culture is emphasised. You can easily finish the visit...More

While this area is relatively new it is still a fun place to wander around if you like seeing various foodstuffs etc. There were very few western tourists when we visited and it seems it has an appeal to anyone. Get there early to avoid...More
