The bridge inside is filled with fun trinkets and souvenirs, many from minority groups in the area. The outside is fantastic to photograph ... Especially when the water is still, the reflection is stunning.

If you go up this bridge, you can take some nice photos of the old wall as well as walk along them. I think you need to pay to get in but can can just hang around near it without paying.

This is the main bridge in the ancient town. It's big enough to have stores on both sides of the bridge as you walk across. A very busy place indeed and quite interesting! Beautiful with all the lights on in the evening.

We were able to find a coffee shop on the bridge and watch the boats go by at night...with their lanterns sending beams of light reflecting on the waters.

Phoenix Ancient Town has a few characteristic bridges, and Hong Bridge is the most famous and photogenic when lit up at night. That bridge reminded me of another photogenic bridge in Florence, Italy “Ponte Vecchio”. The shops on that bridge in Florence sold gold jewellery....More

During the night, LED lights up the bridge. Happened to enjoy a coffee nearby the bridge. A little bit regret because I didn't manage to take a clearer view in the morning.

The Hong Qiao (Rainbow) Bridge in Fenghuang is a landmark and interesting to view from outside. But inside it is filled with the same kinds of shops that you can see in many places in the tourist areas. Go visit when you are touring Fenghuang,...More
