Chongqing has an incredible night viewing. The kaleidoscopic, swirling, neon-Tetris, psychedelic skyline of Chongqing looks like something out of a video game or sci-fi film, but it is very real and has been attracting huge crowds ever since the world found out about China’s secret metropolis.
The night viewing of Nanbinlu Road enjoys a really great reputation. If a traveler asks where you can best view the skyline, the answer is Nanbinlu Road due to its unique geographic location. The night viewing is particularly magnificent when the buildings built along the river are set off by the scenery.
In all seasons, travelers are bound to see the beautiful cityscape in Nanbinlu Road at sunset when the lights go on. Standing on the river bank, travelers will not only see many boats but also hear a blast of a whistle.
