Chongqing boasts a vibrant nightlife, similar to what you’d find in larger cities like Shanghai and Beijing. There are plenty of bars, dance clubs and KTV venues to enjoy, as well as street-barbecue and other snacks along the streets during the night.
One of the most popular bar districts in Chongqing is called 9th Street, located near the Guanyinqiao shopping area. On 9th Street, you will find some of the largest and most popular dance clubs and bars, but there are several other bars located across the city that are all worth visiting.

If you are not so much into loud music and dancing, you can also enjoy walks along Chongqing’s scenic roads, most famous of which is probably Nanbin Road south of Jiefangbei. This is where you can enjoy the best view of the city’s skyline on foot. Another perfect location to enjoy this view is the Yikeshu viewing platform, situated on Nanshan or South Mountain. For some of the top evening viewing and photo locations, look here.
For a more up close and personal look at the city, and from a unique vantage point, you can enjoy one of the many two-river cruises. These cruise ships are situated at the Chaotianmen Pier where the two rivers meet, and the boat trip takes about 1-2 hours.
