Fenghuang Ancient County is a small border town in Xiangxi of Hunan province.
This is a place where folk songs and fine wine flow, as described by Shen Congwen, and it is also a misty and rustic small town depicted in the paintings of Huang Yongyu.
The ‘Most Beautiful Small Town in China’ is a true depiction of Fenghuang, where you can enjoy the scenery and culture everywhere.
Every step in this ancient town brings surprises, and the millennial charm will always amaze you.
The morning bell rings in the Tianwang Temple outside the city, and the sunrise lights up the Dongling Mountain.
Phoenix Nanhua Mountain is covered with lush trees, and the Qifeng mountain is rolling... The eight ancient sights of Fenghuang make people have lots to see.
Crossing the ancient city wall made by the red sandstone, walking into the Huilong ancient street,
Following the countless flagstone alleys, feel the slow pace of life in the ancient city.
Tujia stilt houses are densely distributed along the river bank, and the four bridges named Wind, Rain, Snow, and Fog stand in the middle of the river.
The flowing green Tuojiang River tells the story of the ancient city’s thousand-year history.
Take a walk to the “Jumping Rock” on the Tuojiang River, and ride a small rowboat. Step onto the old Wind and Rain Bridge, and pass by the Miao, Tujia and other ethnic minority residents, who are dressed in distinctive costumes.
Take a look at the buildings such as the Dacheng Hall, Wanshou Palace, and Shen Congwen’s former residence. They all reflect the characteristics of the ancient city, and the deep sense of history is hidden within them.
At night, the Fenghuang ancient city is like a shining pearl, embedded in the land of Xiangxi, with brilliant lights and colourful reflections.
From day to night, Fenghuang always captivates people. The charm of Fenghuang probably lies in this.
