Since Jiefangbei Pedestrian Street won the title of “national demonstration pedestrian street” in 2020, Jiefangbei has been deepening its transformation and upgrading as well as the integrated development with Chaotianmen.

Led by the pedestrian street, a business pattern of “one core, two shorelines, seven blocks, and ten lanes” has formed. By virtue of the regional features and advantages, a group of consumption scenarios with the characteristics of the mountain city has been created, including blocks, backstreets, rooftops, riverbanks, walking trails, and caves.
