CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Night view is the key feature of Chongqing, and night tours are a major feature of Chongqing tourism. As the only park in Chongqing themed on night views, Yihuali Nightscape Park in Nanshan Mountain, Chongqing, received 100,000 visitors during this year’s National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival holidays. According to Chongqing Nan’an Culture and Tourism Commission, Yihuali Night View Park will be officially upgraded this month to create China’s first “dynamic night view park” in order to enhance visitors’ night tour experience.

Creating the IP of “Nightless Chongqing” - first phase of night tours to be unveiled in Spring Festival
This year, Chongqing Municipal Government Information Office issued an opinion on accelerating the development of Chongqing’s nighttime economy, stating that it would create an IP of “Nightless Chongqing”, encourage scenic spots and theme parks to create nighttime tourism places, and comprehensively display the night-time image of the mountain city.
The person in charge of Nan’an Culture and Tourism Commission said that Yihuali Night View Park will be upgraded to the country’s first “Dynamic Night View of Immersive Extreme Night View Theme Park” in response to the call to combine the geographical advantages of Nanshan Mountain, breaking the traditional static night view tour and integrating extreme fun and night scenery sightseeing.
At an altitude of nearly 600 meters above sea level, Yihuali Night View Park offers 270-degree night views of five districts of Chongqing. After more than two years of operation, the park has become a nationally renowned internet-famous tourist destination, and the “internet-famous Bird’s Nest” in the park has become a must-visit destination for many visitors to Chongqing.
“In the past, the night view was just a static thing for visitors to watch and take pictures of, and the tour ended there without any interactive experience or consumption. The night view park is designed to transcend this traditional mode of static night view and to make the night view truly interactive.” According to the head of operations of Yihuali, the Strop down from the summit of Nanshan Mountain, which slides into the city’s night view, allows visitors to fly over the summit of the mountain while blending into the city’s night view from far and near and flying into the thousands of lights of the Yuzhong Peninsula. In addition, 270° night view of the five districts of Chongqing, including water-screen viewing platform, mid-air carousels, high altitude bicycles, airships, and ferries wheels, will immerse recreation facilities into the night view, forming a dynamic night tour loop and enhancing night tour consumption.
The head also explained that the park will be renovated in two phases in order for residents and visitors to experience these immersive night tours as soon as possible. The construction of the first phase started this month and is expected to open in Spring Festival. The complete renovation of the night view park is expected to be completed next April and visitors will be officially welcomed on Labor Day of 2021.

“Street in the Sky” opening on May 1 with a special feature for the mountain villa
It is worth mentioning that the Yihuali Bazaar, adjacent to Yihuali Night View Park, is the first intangible cultural heritage handmade food market in the main urban districts of Chongqing, and was twice recommended by CCTV News Live as a fair-going with the characteristics of Chongqing.
After the comprehensive upgrade of Yihuali Night View Park next year, the loop hiking trails will all be connected. There will be no turning back as visitors travel from the bazaar to the night view park, which not only greatly enhances convenience, but also gives visitors a different experience of the street in the sky - Yihuali Shenxiang.
Yihuali Shenxiang has the characteristics of Mountain City, with its hillside setting and intricate layout and a vertical drop of 72 meters along the street. The pedestrians experience the meandering walkways and a patchwork of small and large shops, workshops and courtyards that are home, production, sales and experience all in one.
“The hillside location is characterized by 6 separate courtyards with platforms, each with a 24-meter drop in height. Each step has its own cottage courtyard, with terraces and views from every step, a form that is unique in Chongqing, a city known for its mountains.” According to the head of operations at Yihuali, Yihuali Shenxiang will open on May 1 next year in tandem with the night view park.
