Let’s enjoy the stunning sunset in these places of Chongqing!
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Embraced by mountains and rivers, Chongqing boasts magnificent sunsets different from those on the seaside and plains, as the unique terrain of the mountainous city adds a layering effect to the scenes of sunsets. Here we recommend for you some places in Chongqing which are blessed with memorable sunsets!
Light of Copper (Tong Yuan Zhi Guang)
Built on mountains, the Light of Copper is a viewing platform popular for its circular suspended footbridge and stunning river views. It gives a wide view of heavy traffic on the Sujiaba interchange, the magnificent cross-river Caiyuanba Bridge, and rows of high-rises in the Yuzhong peninsula...
Transport: Take CRT Line 3, get off at Tongyuanju Station, walk up to the Tianqi Bridge, and then walk up from the footpath next to the tunnel.
Nanshan Qingshuixi Sports Park
Nanshan Qingshuixi Sports Park is an ideal place to watch sunsets. The dazzling skyscrapers and rolling green hills form a multi-dimensional picture, and the constant streams of traffic reflect the real-life image of Chongqing residents.
If you prefer a restful sunset, you can visit the nearby “Wilderness Tea Stall”, which serves tea and snacks and allows you to enjoy a gorgeous sunset with your friends. Watching the skies set ablaze, you pick up your camera to catch this beautiful moment of your own. How romantic it is!
