This town is, sadly like a corpse which someone has tried to bring back to life by injecting it with millions of corpuscles in the former of milling tourists. It is disturbingly loud with the screaming amplifiers of the tourist guides competing with ghetto blasters from the wall-to-wall bars along the beautiful waterfront. Refuge in a restarant was fruitless, as... More

I don't understand the good reviews. Fenghuang is a tourist trap. First of all I find it a disgrace to pay 150 RMB just to be able to go to my hotel (fee for entering the town). So please add the cost of 150 RMB to your roomrate if you plan to stay inside old town. Fenguang is indeed very... More

This city is a tourist attraction for mainly Chinese tourists, the whole city is packed with cheap noisy plastic souvenir shops....so is the bridge from the inside. Walk down the river to see the bridge from the outisde as well as the whole ancient area. Stunning.

We were a group of tourists visiting Zhangjiajie and on a night stop over at Fenghuang in Oct 2013. It was raining and we only have a few hours of sight seeing. It was a truly old and scenic city with beautify sceneries but dampened by the rain. It was quite crowded along the scenic river walk and the photo... More

The tower is along the river in the middle of Phoenix Ancient Town. I enjoyed walking along the river and the tower made for a pretty background in some of my pictures. If you are in Fenghuang it is worth walking along the river to see the tower and the old buildings. There are many people selling food and souvenirs... More
