Wow that monorail makes Chongqing look like an amusement park. I quite like the ivy growing up the pillars, but might it not interfere with the track if it grows up too far?

I wouldn't like to be living in that apartment building which the train goes through, would be difficult to get sleep.

Those people should start a Bed & Breakfast because I would pay to sleep there one night.

Thank you all. Chongqing's special terrain makes the monorail going thru a lot of ups and downs, and it has to make use of every structures on its way, all of which make it an interesting line to ride.

Actually monorail is not very loud compared to other metrol lines. Of course it'll be noisy living next door to it

Then the hotel can boast its location "steps away from metro"

I am more amazed how monorail gets through the building! That is impressive, indeed.

Seems like the trains are tiny! No more than 14 m long for each car. Why don't they build it with I much higher capacity from the scratch?

That is very little, actually. The cost of such a line is rather high given all these supports of concrete. They could count on much more than that.
