We love the place, old city built along the river, both side has many stores, restaurants and bars. A little bit over commercialize for an ancient town.

It is a lovely and charming ancient town. It is worth to stay at least one night there to see a beautiful ancient town by the river and busy, noisy and lively night life.

Most of Fenhuang was unappealing, but then you come upon the ancient town area and wow, very scenic. Restaurants, karaoke bars, shops, etc. Even more scenic at night with their lighting.

A delightful and photogenic place. Well worth a night's stay to combine with your trip to Zhangjiajie (4 hours by bus). If you can brave the heat of the day it's not that busy. Unfortunately at night it became a bit of a circus -...More

Such a beautiful town with lots of streets to explore and wonderful views along the river. The night views are great too. The town can get crowded however with tourist groups and has become commercialised. Our tour guide told us the sad truth though that...More

I was never asked for any fees or paid any fees to walk around. I was only there for one evening and overnight stay though. Only the area along the river is scenic. The main sections of town were very general with office... More
