The CQ People's Square and Hall is directly opposite the Three Gorges Museum and is very easy to visit via Metro Line#2 (Green) (metro station: Zengiayan). A great place to meet friends or have lunch.

If you are visiting the three gorges museum it's worth the time to visit People's square and People's Assemble Hall both located a short walk and 180 degrees from the entrance to the museum.
