Chongqing To Reconstruct Shibati Area

CHONGQING, CHINA - JANUARY 27: (CHINA OUT) A hairdresser perms hair for a woman in a salon at the Shibati Area on January 27, 2007 in Chongqing Municipality, China. The Shibati Area is a very old residential zone, connecting the prosperous Central Business District (CBD) at hilltops and the Old Town at lowland of the mountain city. The area is built along hillsides, like steps on a hill, so its name "Shibati" means a ladder with 18 rungs. Most of the buildings in the area are old brick-and-wood-structured resident houses, and all the alleys are paved with bluestones. The government will largely reconstruct the area this year and residents worry that the unique flavor and life atmosphere there will change, according to local media.
