Ci Qi Kou  is located in the northeast side of Shapingba District. This ancient town with a history of more than 1,000 years was built in 998,  in the reign of Emperor Xiangping of the Northern Song Dynasty.

Ciqikou was once an important commercial port for the distribution of porcelain in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. In recent years it has been transformed and delevoped into a tourist site reminiscent of old times, featuring numerous ancient looking shops offering different traditional foods and crafts.

A wander through the quiet back streets and lanes offers a glimpse of  Ciqikou's prosperous past with large siheyuans, school, temples and residents who still live in the traditional style river side houses .
