8D Magic City of Internet Celebrity in the Eyes of Foreign Media

The variety of “magic” buildings in Chongqing and the rolling terrain features of this mountain city have long amazed foreigners.

For example, the Liziba Light Rail Station, which passes directly through the building, can be described as one of Chongqing’s first “Internet Celebrity Scenic Spots”. Two years ago, the Line 2 train of the light rail line, which passed through the building on its 6th floor, suddenly became a cult phenomenon on foreign media. Many foreign netizens on social media call it “the most amazing building in the world”.

Will it be noisy? With the low noise and low vibration equipment of the light rail and the wheel made of inflatable rubber tire, the whole vehicle body is supported by air spring, and the noise is much lower than the noise average sound level of 75.8 db in urban traffic trunk line.

The Daily Telegraph says,

At that time, CNN published a report titled

The article expressed amazement at the “unity” of light rail stations with buildings:

The Daily Mail of the UK also marveled at this, reporting:

Many foreign netizens expressed their amazement at this.

The Wonderful Life in the Mountain City

The magic building “Hongyadong” has become one of the must-see tourist attractions in Chongqing.

This magical building is similar to the Soup house in Spirited Away.

The 11-story Hongyadong is known as “China Cliff City”.

Can you imagine that the gap between the two roads is 10 stories high?

Chongqing people are most proud of the Crown Escalator, the second largest lifting slope in Asia with a total length of 112 meters.

Chongqing’s most complex overpass is Huangjue Bay Overpass. Huangjue Bay Overpass has 5-story structure and 15 ramps, connecting 8 directions.

Have you ever seen six light rails within the same frame in 3D space?

In this image, the six trains on Track Line 2 and Track Line 3 appear in a picture at the same time, including the Light Rail Station, Rail Bridge, Yu Ao Bridge, Jialing River Bridge and Jiabin Viaduct. This is a perfect interpretation of the magical 8D Chongqing.

Chongqing’s suspended flyover is also a spectacle rarely seen elsewhere.
