Yuzhong spreads along a geological syncline dipping 'gently' towards Chaotianmen but steeply down to both rivers. Renmin Park, close to Jiefang Square is a series of terraces, linked by stairs, dropping southeast towards the Changjiang - a great place for observing everyday life or relaxing over tea.

Towards Chaotianmen and overlooking the Jialingjiang is Hongya Cave - an extensive tourist development, resembling a mountain village. Rooftop terraces provide panoramic views of busy river life and of Qiansimen Bridge with metro trains regularly crossing on the lower deck of this massive red metal structure to the newer area of Jiangbei that includes the iconic riverside Grand Theatre (2009). Dominating the immediate skyline is on-going construction of Raffles City which will soon emerge as a futuristic symbol, a 21st century Chaotianmen gateway to contemporary Chongqing.
