Drinking & Nightlife

There are a string of riverside bars (酒吧; jiǔbā), cafes and restaurants on Nan’an Binjiang Lu (南岸滨江路); take the cable car over the Yangzi, then walk down to the river and turn left. From there, walk 15 minutes along the river or hop on any bus for one stop. Note: the cable car stops running at 10pm.

Dé Yǐ Shì Jiè (得以世界) is a public square surrounded by tacky bars, karaoke joints and the city’s biggest nightclubs.

For traditional teahouses, head to Cíqìkǒu Ancient Town and look for signs for 茶园 (cháyuán; tea garden).
