Great place for a brief stop. We visited Feng Huang on our way from Zhangjiajiae to Changsha for a train to Guilin. If you are looking for something special, not including much effort this is a place for you. Just stroll around the city and sit by the side of the river in the evening for magnificent views. It is... More

Not unlike the Qin Shubao posters (buy one if you find one) pasted upon doors of the city, the people in red winter rain jackets are the gatekeepers of Fenghuang. They take your 148 RMB and check your ticket when entering at or near the main gates of the old town along with the attractions. They will give you a... More

It's lovely to walk about the town and bargain for some souvenirs. The boat ride was the highlight of our visit. Just sit back and admire the beautiful stilt houses along the river. Truly picturesque. The city is magnificent at night. Ancient towns are plenty in China. In my opinion, Phoenix is one of the better maintained ones. It's quite... More

The moment we reached this city, we were so amazed by the natural beauty of this small ancient city where traditional wooden houses were built along by the river. There were many shops selling local snacks , souvenirs and food along the alleys ways. We got the chance for a boat ride for sightseeing too. This place should not be... More

The city night view is extremely attractive with lights perfect for photos snapping. It is an old city built along the two sides of a river. It is also fun to walk the streets and visit the many small shops during day time. Unfortunately many of the old buildings no longer exist and were only rebuilt recently. Despite that, it... More

China has so many nice old towns. They are clean, picturesque and amazing. Every old town is unique and similarly with this fenghuang. I like old houses standing on the edge of the river. I like the architectures, bridges and peoples there but I somehow dislike the increasing number of bars and cafes. Although they are housed in the old... More

It is well preserved, I was blown away on my first sight of the ancient town at night. Although there are many houses converted to restaurants and bar, you can still feel the ancient atmosphere. In the morning, you take a walk and see the old town come alive. I love the smell, the sight and the food. Worth a... More
