The cable ride is famous in Chongqing, yet it is just a normal cable ride. The only good thing is it overlooks the Yangtze river; the bad things are the ride is very short about 6 minutes, very long queue takes about 45 minutes and...More

Short trip across the river and back. Very long lines both ways. Views of the city available from many other viewpoints. Maybe shorter lines off season and weekdays. Not worth the time.

It can be fun if you’re lucky and don’t have to wait in line for too long. Try to go on a weekday and be early to beat the crowds. But if you find a long queue at the ticket office, skip it. It’s just...More

Not all that great during the day. They really pack you in there. You can cross the river for a shorter line opposite the Hongyadong. Probably better at night when all the lights come on.

Avoid weekends and public holidays, the queue can be an hour of difference compared to normal weekday. Not costly but there’s nothing exciting except for the view of the river. It is still being used as a mode of transport to cross the river.

The queue could be intimidating, but it is worth the wait. One-way is RMB 20 and Two-way RMB 30 per person. The ride lasts about 6 minutes. I sensed that even though the ride is crowded that it was fairly easy to get a good...More

I am not sure. I took it in the late morning and then walked down the river to an outdoor area that had some wonderful restaurants for lunch.
