“Where is the charming?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

I am a big fan of lonely planet, so the village decribe so perfectly..small,quiet peaceful with beautiful natures. Travelling from Fenghuang it's very easy..just 60-70 minutes. The village fee is 60 RMB (all mentioned) but we have to pay 120 RMB per person for 1 night stay. We are very poor with chinese language so even i asked for the explanation, it seem no explanation. I came back to ask my chinese friend in Thailand so he said it's 60RMB for enter fee in the day time and because we stay over night that why we have to pay 120RMB. Our ticket included the Miao night show but we can not know due to language problem.(no one speak english). Anyway we saw the show and it's good. But the village charming gone with new concreat house contruction and lound carry megaphone from chinese tour group. The small charming river die because of contrction by big truck blocked the river trail. The waterfall need a long walk, the waterfall not too charming by itself(small/not much water) but the walking trail is good. The view point need hikking skill up far to the top point in a quiet/abandon walking steps. The good things here is local people..they are charming to me.
