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

Phoenix village is very unique tourism town, it's quite small. It took 1 day for me to walk around this town. Special dish that you must try is duck blood, it's super delicious.

Very beautiful place which u can take many nice pictures. Shops along the streets as well. Many toilets available, so no worry. Recommend to bargain, cut the price at least 50% before you buy as its a tourist attraction place.
