Sichuan and Chongqing Sights

18 Steps

Updated 05/28/2013

Fodor's Review

18 Steps is one of the coolest places in the city, literally and figuratively. The neighborhood is just south of the Liberation Monument, and hasn't changed since the early 20th century. The name refers to the steps leading from the upper level of Jie Fang Bei down to the slums below. The infamous 18 Steps tunnel, the scene of horrible carnage during WWII, serves as a congregation point for the whole neighborhood. Find the tunnel, pull up a mat, and sip tea while the locals

stare at you incredulously. At the top of the steps is a teahouse with a treasure trove of WWII memorabilia.
