Fenghuang Ancient Town, also known as "Phoenix Town," lies on the western edge of Hunan next to Guizhou. With its 1,300 years of recorded history, the town features distinct residential buildings, elegant bridges and mysterious towers and pagodas. After thousands years, the buildings and harmonious atmosphere in the town never changed. In the early morning or after rain, the bridges and unique houses built on stilts over the water are covered by mists that display a peaceful view that is often portrayed in traditional Chinese paintings. To stroll along or boat on Tuo River through this picturesque scenery may be the most romantic trip when you travel in Fenghuang.
