Ciqikou, an ancient town in Chongqing

The town of Ciqikou is more than 1,700 years old. It features traditional southwestern Chinese architecture, small shops, a variety of unique local snacks and restaurants on boats. Porcelain was produced and exported from here during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, giving the town its present-day name, which literally means "porcelain port." Houses in Ciqikou are made from bamboo and wood and are typical of the type found in eastern Sichuan. The paintings on the houses are beautiful and delicate. [Photo/China.org.cn]
