We visited Fenghuang with a flight from Shanghai to Torngren. We arrived about 21:00 and once we reached the ancient town of Fenghuang our first reaction was WOW!!! Old city, full of life, wonderful live music bars, everything is enlightened. Only take into account that at midnight everything stops.

Is located in Fenghuang and the town is divided by the Tuo Jiang River. You must stay in a hotel along the river. We found both sides of the river amazing with a large number of street vendors selling souvenirs and food on the waters edge adjacent to all the hotels, restaurants and retailers. We found in the restaurants they... More

It was a cool city but made unbearable by loud commercialism and annoying tourists walking while on phoning.

This ancient old town was famous of it setting along rive and, the ancient look. We stop by the town for 2 nights while travelling to Zhangjiajie. The town has plenty of store for shopping, the old houses along river are now taken over by stores and accommodations for tourists and become overwhelmed with commercial activities. But the river gives... More

The night view was spectacular. The night view was spectacular. The hanging lights outlined all the buildings and the bridges. The reflection of the lighted buildings reflected on the water. The mirror image of the town on the water was just breath taken. Enjoy this ancient town with your eye rather just taking picture.

It is like one of the places where the young strangers meet and drink. It is very noisy after sunset but the night view is great.

The view from this Tower is picture perfect. Every windows are opening up to yet another stunning view of the Town overlooking the meandering river, and local Miao people carrying on with their daily lives in spite of the hustle bustle of commercialisation. There's a "but" because the moment you sit down there and enjoying the view, business operators who... More

Fenghuang (Phoenix in Chinese) Ancient Town is itself an oxymoron because in a span of twenty years, this town has grown four folds. Therefore, "Ancient" is not truly a genuine representation of what it is. Tourism is the economy backbone of this County. If you look closer at this place, you shall notice its gross commercialisation with total disregard of... More

Was not there very long, late afternoon and evening. Would have loved to have more time to explore. Laid back in the late afternoon but the place was 'hopping' in the evening. It has 'old world charm' and a 'vision' of old. It is a place that I would go back to, to just spend more time there.
