Chinese Market – In Ciqikou Old Town, shopping and sampling the local culinary delights are the most popular things to do. The pedestrian-only lanes of this historic Chinese market district on the western side of Chongqing City are lined with shops and eateries, and the locals are quite keen on preserving traditional ways of life. Here, we see two such locals pounding a piece of dough into submission with large wooden hammers. What they ultimately have in mind for the dough might be anyone's guess, as the assortment of food items in the Chongqing Ciqikou Market is wide ranging.
