Follow us to start our journey around the Jiefangbei Central Business District.
Located at the heart of Chongqing in Yuzhong District and the center of the Jiefangbei CBD, the People’s Liberation Monument was built in 1946 to commemorate the Chinese People’s Victory in the Sino-Japanese War.
The tower is built on what was once the Spiritual Fortress at the same location; unfortunately, it was destroyed during the bombing of the city, and the monument in its place was completed in 1946 after the end of the war. For a long time, this was the tallest building in Chongqing, and it remains an important memorial in the city and a reminder of the history that took place here.
When you visit Jiefangbei Pedestrian Street, you get to check out the delicious snack street, which is just a few minutes’ walks away from the Monument. The snack street is always busy, full of authentic local snacks and drinks that you can choose freely, and of course, at a very fair price.
