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.

We had a day and night visit here and was a nice place to experience. During the day, people go about their business washing veg in the river, cooking etc. While tourists grab a snack from a street vendor or even a KFC (yes there's one there!) Take a boat up the river to see the old bridges up close,... More

We love the ancient town of Fenghuang so much so that we moved here to live. The town grows more beautiful year by year as the river walkways and the bridges are built. The architecture is lovely to the eyes as well as the ambiance of wandering through the many small streets and alleyways near the river. Meander along the... More

This ancient town is fascinating with its ancient wooden houses built on stilts along the banks of the Tuo Jiang River. It also has what it seems like ‘centuries’-old bridges over the water. There is also a beautiful pagoda seated by the side of the river bank. We took the river cruise to enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds -... More
