The dock culture of Chongqing mainly consists of Paoge culture and Teahouse
culture. The Paoge culture comes from the influence of the Jianghu brotherhood.
Chongqing has been a water transportation hub at the upper reaches of the
Yangtze River since the Southern Song Dynasty. About 60% local residents had
lived on the dock to carryon goods and tow boats, which demanded cooperation.
Therefore, the Jianghu brotherhood has a greater influence on Chongqing than
Chongqing has a long history of drinking tea. A writer published a article on
Hong Kong’s Sing Tao Tourism magazine for his days in Chongqing during the
War of Resistance Against Japan, saying “a taste of life in the Paris Cafe, a taste
of life in the house of Chongqing. An article about Chongqing must write the
teahouse. With a bowl of tea (the bowl is called Gaiwan in China), people laid
on a bamboo chair and chat with each other as long as they can.”
Teahouse shows a rich flavor of Bayu life, which is appreciated by tourists at home
