Overall view of the Longmenhao Old Street
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Nan’an District can rank the top among Chongqing popular scenic spots. There are the Yangtze River Cableway, the 720-degreeRongqiao Interchange, the Longmenhao Old Street with Chongqing history and the Yikeshu Observation Deck in Nanshan Mountain with wide view. Mixed with Bayu culture, red culture, Anti-Japanese War culture and port opening culture, Nan’an District is developing an upgraded tourism based on the rich cultural and tourism resources, and aims at becoming a pearl of tourism development in the whole Chongqing.
The Longmenhao Old Street is to be opened before the National Day
Nanbin Road, more than 10 kilometers, is the most worthwhile place if tourists want to experience both the history and culture of Chongqing and the prosperity of modern cities. Chongqing opened its port to the world in 1891 and the customs was firstly set here. In addition, the historical relics like “Palace Museum Moved to the South” Museum and French Naval Barracks are everywhere.
Nanbin Road is integrating the culture and tourism. In addition to the Danzishi Old Street opened in June, the historic and cultural district of the Longmenhao is planned to open before National Day this year. There are 27 buildings in the first opening area, including 6 district-level buildings of historical and cultural preservation and 1 excellent historical building.
An old site of Italian embassy was located in the Old Street, with the mixture of Chinese and western style buildings, which doesn’t exist. According to the original photos and mapping drawings, it has been rebuilt with its original appearance in the old site. Buildings such as Villa No. 1 and No. 2 for American military officer are also most likely to be restored by using original materials and remained building materials with original techniques.
Streetcars to be built in Nanbin Road
There are various scenic spots along Nanbin Road, so Nanbin Road has become the window to show the temperament, culture and appearance of Chongqing. However, the Nanbin Road along the river is facing the problems of single transportation mode and low connection between scenic areas.
In order to enhance the image of the international golden leisure tourism belt of the Nanbin Road, Chongqing will introduce the green and environment-friendly, comfortable and innovative streetcars into the riverside area.
Streetcars are not only a scenery line, but also have the advantages in safety, environmental protection and large capacity. The streetcars will start from the area of the Foreigner Street in Nan’an District, along the Nanbin Road and the Babin Road, to the Mudong in Ban’an District, with a total length of more than 70 kilometers. It is expected to be partially opened by the end of next year. The streetcars along the river will connect with Line 6, Line 3 and Loop Line.
Nanshan is to create “light and shadow show in the starry sky”
In addition, Nanshan will speed up the project construction of a "Seeing Chongqing from Multiple Views", using high-tech means to create a "light and shadow show in the starry sky " at night in Nanshan. In order to "light up" the Nanshan, it will take world-class high-tech to create the "starry sky" on the Nanshan. The project is planned to cover several square kilometers of the Nanshan. During the day, the lamp pole equipment is like a tree in the forest of the Nansha. It will change its light and shadow with the music at night, which is as bright as the sky above the Nanshan, seen from other areas of the main urban area.
