What people are saying:

Chongqing Chaotianmen Wharf has undergone many historical changes. The first imperial envoys to convey the emperor’s wishes passed through this gate, hence the name "Chaotianmen". In the long years, Chaotianmen was the most important transportation hub in Chongqing. It is also a shop and a logistics center. Of course, it is also a mixed bag. It is said that the dock culture, Chongqing hot pot, and Maoxuewang all originated here. In the mid-to-late 1990s, Chaotianmen was a wholesale market. Many clothes in Chongqing Jiefangbei Women’s Street were purchased from here. Later, with convenient land transportation, the wholesale shops at Chaotianmen Wharf gradually transformed into high-end clothing. The wharf was also exclusively for Yangtze River cruise ships. Raffles, which shocked the world, turned Chaotianmen into a place of fashion, luxury and desire.
