We bought the ticket with our hostel owner which including 8 main attraction plus Tuojiang river boat ride. This is one of the attraction. Only few tourist were here. If you are familiar with this writer you will find your visit more interesting. Although we don't know him we were glad to know the story of this famous writer. Visited on Dec 2018.

To visit Fenghuang town, tourists like myself would have to purchase a ticket that entitles me to visit nine places of interest, or else, it would be deemed void. The residence of a popular local son, Congwen Shen happened to be one of them. If we have no knowledge or bearing upon what made his famous at the first place, being here is like visiting a stranger's house. The guide here is catering more for local people (everything is done in Mandarin) and if happened to be a non-Mandarin speaker, then, you will be out of luck. Been there, done that experience.

Without Mr Shen, fenghuang will not be today as a tourist place. His house is simple. He is a simple great man. The guide who explained his life is not knowledgeable. Do read his story before you come to visit his old house. I bought his famous book 边城 at 20 RMB.

“Shen Congwen, Miao nationality, is a famous writer historian and archaeologist. He was born in Zhong Ying Street in the ancient town of Fenghuang in December, 1902.” – Phoenix of China (71) The only reason that I know anything about this man, and the history of Fenghuang, and its people, is because I bought the book “Phoenix of China” at the Shen Congwen Residence bookshop for 52.00 RMB. The bookshop opens onto the street so you can buy the book and read a bit before using the attraction part of your ticket. I wish I would have found this book on day one. It will give you an overview of Fenghuang, its famous residents past and present and native peoples, the landscape and historical areas, and cultural tourism. It also has an English map in the back. The house itself is curious and worth a look around if you have a ticket. Tip: You can see all the attractions or sights in one day if you get an early start. Your ticket is good for five days to enter in and out of the gates, but only good for two days to see the attractions.
