Monument sights in Chóngqìng
- Sort by:
If you have just a couple of days to spend in the city, Liberation Monument is the best place to start. First built to commemorate Sun Yatsen's death, the wooden tower's dedication was twice revised to mark the victory over the Japanese in 1947 and the first anniversary of the People's Republic of China in 1950. It's also the site of a spectacle every morning at 06:00, when hundreds congregate at its base for tai chi practice.
Keep an eye out for blue Chinese and English markers pointing the way to major sites and shopping around this area.
