Old streets recommended for you to visit on weekends
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- It’s just one day off this weekend. Have you made up your mind where to go? Why not take rail transit to these old streets for a walk and enjoy their unique style.
Although Shancheng Lane is located in the busy area, it is a quiet place in the bustle, as if reminding people to stop and take a look at the scenery at their feet even when they are busy.
When the most beautiful footpath in the mountain city meets the old streets that have gone through the vicissitudes of life, combined with the scenery and human feelings along the way through the time, the most authentic flavor of Chongqing is formed.

Zhongshan Fourth Road
Zhongshan Fourth Road, which is only 800 meters long, has Chongqing's past and present lives. Walking into this quiet street slowly, you can quietly enjoy that the yellow poplar trees along both sides block out the sky and the sun, blue brick porch eaves are all the way, and the sun is quiet.
Stone bricks, green tiles, past memories, and maple vines climbing the walls, bear many ancient stories.

Fotuguan Park Footpath
Compared with the crowded Liziba Observation Platform, the nearby Fotuguan Park Footpath is a bit deserted, but it is a great choice for outing.
The Footpath is almost parallel to the track, just a few meters apart, and trains can be seen whizzing past every few minutes. Especially on the footpath next to Fotuguan Tunnel, at the moment the train comes out of the tunnel, the visual effect is very shocking.

Huangjueping Graffiti Street
This is a street full of market and art, a combination of industrial city and art city, as well as a street of surrealistic space.
The whole street is covered with colorful graffiti, which is like a huge backdrop for posing and taking selfies. You can come to Huangjueping Street for a walk or feeling the authentic Chongqing and the noble art.
Location: No. 108, Huangjueping Center Street, Jiulongpo District

Huangge Ancient Road of Nanshan Mountain
Salt and tea peddler's horse-gang, the traveling merchants in Sichuan and Guizhou, and the soldiers of the expeditionary force who fought in Burma once walked along this road.
Time flies by quickly. Now the ancient road, like an old book, lies quietly at the foot of Nanshan. It has been hidden in the bustling buildings with a warm and simple sentiment, and has become another kind of scenery in the city.
Location: Nanshan Mountain, Nan’an District
Traffic road: Get off at Shangxinjie Station of CRT Line 6 and walk about 1km to the entrance of Huangge Ancient Road.
