Boasting spectacular scenery, splendid works of art, like relief and inscribed Chinese characters it also offers tantalizing food.

The area attracts multitudes of hungry diners and sightseers every day. The impressively landscaped boardwalk assures you fresh air and a welcoming environment with a dash of the arts, culture and historical insights into Chongqing's Treaty Port years.
