Beautiful night scenes and vast reeds at this place
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- As autumn came, a small town in the south of Chongqing becomes particularly popular. Chongqing does not lack for ancient towns and old streets. What is the charm of this new open town attracting a number of Chongqing local people?
It is the Xiliutuo Town in Banan District. All the city walls, archways, red carpets, and high-hanging red lanterns create a strong classical atmosphere. The perfect combined logs and bluestones and the Chinese cornice and western engraved glass make the town unique and stylish. There are many ramps, thus, sightseeing escalators are built for the elderly and children.
Night scenes comparable to Hongyadong
Surrouded by yellow orange lights in the evenings, the night scenes of Xiliutuo are comparable to Hongyadong. Moreover, you can take photos as you like for no bustling crowds here. At night, the reflection on the river is very beautiful. It is very pleasant to find a tavern, have a drink and get some air by stilted buildings.
Vast reed marshes
There are not only red leaves and gingkos in autumn, but also the charming reed marshes. Reed, as mentioned in the Book of Songs, is the grass closest to love which is drifting and falling with the wind. On the banks of Xiliutuo River, there are a large number of reeds which is rarely seen in Chongqing! Pictures taken here are beautiful no matter how you pose.
River banks and shoals far away from crowds
As an important wharf in Banan, you can't help feeling that "mighty river flows eastward" when standing on the riverside. You can play sand with your children or have a picnic with friends by the river. It is also a unique experience to fly a kite here to feel the sensation of floating, but do remember to take the garbage away after playing.
Childhood tastes in memories
A variety of foods in Xiliutuo can meet the need of foodies. Hot and sour chicken of Shibalipu Restaurant is a perfect combination of sour and spicy flavor, making you sucking your fingers. Mullets of Baxiangyuan Restaurant made by fresh mullets, pickled radish and wild peppers is tasty with less fishbone and fresh sour and spicy flavors. Crispy spare ribs with garlics is delicious for tender inside while crisp outside.
Public transportation: You can take Line 3 to get off at Jiugongli Station, then take a taxi or take Bus 349, Bus 319, Bus 858, Bus 340 to get off at “2nd Ronghui Avenue”.
