Unique buildings in Chongqing are not only in Hongyadong
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Chongqing is a magical city in which citizens often tell tourists to go up and down, or turn left and right instead of giving specific directions. In Chongqing, we often walk 99 steps just to go home. It is not a problem to walk more than 10,000 steps per day. Because of the rugged and unique terrain of the Mountain City, Chongqing has built many unique roads. So it has become a veritable “mountain city.” Therefore, citizens don't take usual roads in Chongqing. What special buildings are there in Chongqing? You might as well appreciate them!
Fangbianmian (Instant Noodle) Building
Near the Chongqing Railway Station, there is a building whose appearance is a unique barrel-shaped. It gained the nickname of "Fangbianmian (Instant Noodle) Building" from netizens. With the appearance of instant noodles in packages, the building often gives an abdominal fullness. Actually this building takes the appearance of bamboo as model, which means that it is climbing steadily. Unexpectedly, the original design concept was misinterpreted.
As one of the filming locations of many movies such as “Crazy Stone” and “Chongqing Hot Pot”, it was dubbed as the highest ramp bridge in China by Chongqing citizens. The Sujiaba Flyover has a spiral of 720 degrees with no visible head, and two loops are stacked on top of one another. There are seven or eight meters difference between the two roads connected by the bridge. It has become one of the “Online Celebrity” tourist attractions in Chongqing. People who have acrophobia please don't go there without due consideration. Although it seems to be dangerous, there have been no traffic accidents since it has opened. Let's thumbs up to it.
Road on the roof
Due to the topography of Chongqing, the road is an internal part of the community. It is located near the third building in the community and built on top of a five story building. The road on the roof is about 10 meters wide, and echoes with the downstairs road, Haitangxi New Street in the direction of Danzishi. It forms a spectacular three-dimensional scene : roof road. On the side of the building is the entrance and exit of the residential garage, so there is a kind of sense that there are roads upstairs and downstairs. In fact, the area below the road is the garage of the community, and there are shops under the garage. It is also this road that makes Chongqing shock China.
One residential quarter in Jiulongpo District, Chongqing has a peculiar appearance which is like pieces of mahjong. Viewed from afar, it looks like a mahjong tube-shaped apartment. So it is called “Mahjong Building” by the citizens. For Chongqing citizens who like to play mahjong, this "Mahjong Building" causes friendly feeling. However, some netizens also expressed their dissatisfaction: “This Mahjong Building has only Liutong and Batong. It is frustrating to be defeated with good cards.
