Fenghuang Ancient City, also know as Phoenix Ancient Town, is located in Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, in southwest of Hunan Province.

It is one of the smaller counties in Hunan, but now it is known as the most beautiful ancient town for its long history and well-preserved appearances. The name of Phoenix (Phoenix in Chinese Pinyin is Fenghuang) town mainly derived from the Phoenix Mountain which is in a phoenix shape.
★★ Fenghuang Old Town ★★
Fenghuang Ancient City has basically maintained the layout and original appearances of the Ming and Qing dynasties to this day.

There preserved in the ancient town zone over 200 ancient residential buildings, some 20 large or small streets, 10 ancient lanes and alleys, as well as ancient town walls, ancient town gate towers, ancient leaping rock, ancient wells, ancient rainbow bridges, ancient temples of literature, ancient temples of poems, ancient ancestral temples etc., all of which are by and large preserved in their original state.

The residential environment featuring harmony between human and the mountains, waters and the town has been preserved in its original form up to now.

Fenghuang is a well-preserved traditional village in the western Hunan province. Also called the Phoenix Ancient Town, Fenghuang is a fantastic place to visit for a long weekend trip or a stop-by on your way through Hunan.

With beautiful riverside buildings, old temples, traditional Miao culture, picturesque mountain surroundings, and an amazing night-time atmosphere, there’s so much to see in this little town!
★★ Introductions of Fenghuang Ancient Town: ★★
The ancient town of Fenghuang also means the Phoenix Town in China; it was described as the most beautiful town in China by the Zelanian writer Louis Aileen. The town is the only path between Huaihua, Jishou (Hunan province) and Tongren (Guizhou province) and a must-visit place to enjoy the real amorous feelings of the west part of Hunan province.

The town is very small with only a main street; however, it is a green corridor and charming place. It is located on the river bank of Tuojiang River, the small town was once the rallying point for politicos, warlords, bandits, and the local Miao minority people, we should say it was once a standard "barbarian" land.

★★ Main Attractions and interesting things to do:
★★ Tuojiang River:
Tuojiang River is the mother river of the ancient town of Fenghuang, getting on the local black-awning boat (pronounced Wupeng Boat in Chinese), enjoying the folk songs sung by the helmsman, watching the featured Diaojiao buildings all along the river bank, boating downstream and crossing the Rainbow bridge, all make guest feel like touring in a scroll painting.

★★ Gate towers:
Four ancient city gates exist in the town, the East Gate Tower was built by red sand rocks and it is of the same importance as the North Gate Tower, the gates protected the town a lot in ancient time.

★★ Former residences:
People started to know the Phoenix Town from one famous Chinese writer - Shen Congwen. Mr. Shen was born here in a classic ancient quadrangle courtyard at Fenghuang town. Except from the Former Residence of Shen Congwen, visitors may also look around the Xiong Xiling’s Former Residence, Mr. Xiong Xiling was called ‘the wonder child of Hunan province’ and he was elected as the first elected Prime Minister of the Republican period in 1913.

★★ Ancestral hall:
The Ancestral Hall of Yang Family was built in 1836 and located in the northeast of the ancient city wall of Fenghuang, people may marvel at the fantastic designing and work of the hall.

★★ Hongqiao Wind and Rain Bridge:
The bridge has three arches, the height from the river surface to the top of the bridge compares a couple of floors. Mr. Huang Yongyu’s (born in Fenghuang and famous for his print making) left his antithetical couplet on the bridge and left the world with imagination and wonders. The second floor of the bridge is used for receiving importance guests and exhibiting calligraphies and paintings.

  • Hello Walk East, This Phoenix Ancient town is so beautiful, however you didn't record the beauty of this town BY NIGHT, it is so romantic...

    • Hello @Walk East, Whenever you make a certain video for a specific city, you should make TWO IN ONE for DAY ̃& NIGHT, don't make half & half, therefore we don't have to go back and forth to view it...

    • Thanks a lot, friend Search the night walk of here in my channel😁👏🏻

  • Wait a minute. My city of Phoenix is not in Hunan province. Phoenix is in Arizona, a desert state😃

    • Thanks a lot for your funny words!

  • 哇 你好厉害, 大江南北都去过了

  • I went to Feng Huang 10 years ago. Miss that place 😁. Your video is so sharp and nice. Did you use DJI Pocket 2?

    • Thanks for your feedback, friend. I used Panasonic gh5 mirrorless camera. Pocket 2 is not that good:)

  • Not sure why there is such a big contrast compared to your video and the other CNlinksr video at the same place. The other video shows this place almost empty and no tourists! Maybe different day of the week?

    • Because the other video chose morning time to film. That means most of the stores were not open for business and most of the tourists were in sleeping after an entertaining happy night. Yes, morning and night are different world at this place

  • Woww... Amazing...

  • Thật là một thành phố tuyệt vời, nhiều tầng nhiều lớp, nét cổ xưa được lưu giữ, con người và cảnh quan hòa hợp. Người dân bao đời đã bỏ công sức xây dựng để có cuộc sông thiên đường hôm nay. Họ thật sự có đầu óc thẩm mỹ và bàn tay tài hoa. Một thành phố hiếm có nơi trái đất.

    • Cảm ơn vì những lời tuyệt vời của bạn!

  • Wow beautiful place

    • Nice words of you! Thank you!

  • これは、最近の撮影ですか?洪水被害、大丈夫でしたか?日本からですが、是非とも行ってみたいです。

    • はい、それはごく最近の撮影です。 洪水による被害はなくなり、長い間修復されてきました。 親愛なる友よ、ここへの訪問を歓迎します。

    • Thanks for visiting, friend.

  • Благодарю автора за увлекательную экскурсию.🙏Подача материала, как исторического, так и современного, впечатляет.

    • Большое спасибо, дорогой друг! Большое спасибо за ваши слова!

  • 大外宣你好,我就是附近人,现在根本就没人,拿两年前的视频来忽悠人,欺骗人!

    • 既然你在附近,就在纸上写上你的ID拍一段视频,张口就来谁都会

    • @123 S 感谢支持,我心血来潮就打了一下字,一般是一笑而过

    • @Walk East 其实这种逢中必反刷存在感的你都完全不用回。。。还打这么多字。。

    • 你好你好,如果两年前我就能拍出如此高质量的视频,我只怕做梦都会笑醒… 好吧,其实我就是大外宣,我频道视频都是几年前拍的,我就是用这些视频忽悠人的,中国到处都是萧条冷清的场景,我目的就是忽悠人、欺骗人,以达到大外宣的目的……相信这样你会舒服很多🤝

  • Merci pour le vidéo. Pour construire une telle ville sans machines, il faut une ambition des seigneurs de guerre et aussi une bonne organisation de la société à cette époque.

    • Merci pour votre grand partage, cher ami. Merci!

  • 鳳凰古城 is unique better than 桂林& 蘇州。I went there in 2018 ,first go to 長沙 railway station ,join a tour group is easier. Also must visit 苗寨 nearby. 😊🤗

    • Thanks for your great sharing, dear friend!


    • Thanks a lot, dear friend!

  • Interested & beautiful!

  • This is amazing and one of a kind place on earth. Really nice

    • Thanks for your great words!

  • 希望中國保護保存多些古蹟

  • I think you got lost or?!🤭

  • So nice !! I love that :)))

  • Kun Ming city's old streets with wooden houses are much much nicer than Feng Huang village. How come it is less visited than this village?

    • Thanks for your great tips. I would like to visit Kunming someday.

  • 2020/9月才洪災,這麼快就恢復了?

    • 当月就消退了。两周就恢复了。夜夜笙歌,晚上人气总是爆棚。

  • Beautiful place

  • Many Miao people in the video

  • Wow amazing quality video what kind of camera you use...??

    • It's mirrorless camera, Panasonic Gh5.

  • People coming here just some local , usually crowd this place cause very famous , when i compare with another guy share 曾經火爆一時的鳳凰古城,如今遊客寥寥無幾,遊客都去哪裡了, what do you explain ?

    • @Wde Pigutong , memang sekarang wisata mengandalkan wisatawan lokal karena pandemic , berharap ini cepat berlalu ,kembali ramai lagi

    • 这有什么好解释的?你不知道疫情吗?现在全世界哪里的旅游景点不是游客寥寥无几?

    • Before 10AM, few people would get up to enjoy the town. Because it's a night entertaining city. it would be very crowded from 7PM to 2AM. But very few people in the morning. Every day is like this.

  • Amazing place, Diversity just works for some countries.. Don't let any American chain shops in... if you want a KFC, Mac, Apple go to the Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen..HK

  • Amazing brother❤️ Just try making short videos of 10 - 15 min n your channel will boom up with views I m from ur neighbor would love to explore ur culture 😁😁

    • Thanks for your advice. I will figure it out.

  • Too many tourists are destroying the local Miao and Tujia cultures of Fenghuang.

    • @Walk East Have a tourist fallen into the river while crossing a stone bridge? What is the depth of the river water?

    • Without the prosperous tourism, no money would support this kind of beautiful places

  • Where is the location. Thanks

    • It's in West Hunan Province. Google "Phoenix Ancient City" and you would find the location details. Or 凤凰古镇 in Chinese.

  • wow nice place 👌

  • Amaziiing....

  • So beautiful ! China's Venice ! Thanks! Paris, France : 11 march 21

    • 0

    • Thank you too, dear friend! Have a great March!

  • I really want to spend a couple of years in China living in lijiang and/ or other old cities; not just as a coupleofweeks tourist.

    • @E Ng 🙏

    • @Jio Jio thank you.

    • Zhouzhuang is recommended 👍

    • @Walk East thank you!

    • You're so welcome to China!

  • すべでの建物はレプリカです。100%本物の歴史的な宝石が一軒も現存ではない!😂 八十年代以降に建てられたものです。🤣 川沿いの建物は川側の半分が木造、反対側の半分がコンクリートです。😜

    • 别人吃屎,你也要吃屎? 别人偷东西,你也要偷东西? -----小粉红逻辑!😋😍🤩🥰

    • @zhou liu 笑掉大牙?----你连牙都没长全呢,你笑个屁大牙呀?🤣😂😅 去找百度理论去吧你!🤗

    • @dada xu 民国在台湾?笑掉大牙,台湾人自己都不认自己是中国人,你看看有几个台湾人认自己是中国人的?你难道不知道日本的建筑也多是仿古的?别的不说,那个有名熊本城就是后建的,德国百分之八十的建筑都是二战后后建的仿古建筑。

    • @zhou liu 你给我说说,你见过几个“货真价实保留下来的古迹”? 都是仿制品,大多数都是80年以后仿制出来的“山寨货”!🤣🤣🤣

    • @zhou liu 别问我,你去问“百度"!😂 用关键字”唐朝在日本 明朝在韩国 民国在台湾“去百度一下去!🤣

  • Nice video, when was this video taken? It's completely empty now.

    • It's always empty in the morning and it's always crowded at night. Every day in a year would like this.

  • I am Chinese but I stay in Thailand I have not never China

  • Great video!

    • 这次还是耐心回复您一次,下不为例

  • omg the street is so clean!!!!

    • Tỉnh Tây Hồ Nam. Gần thành phố Hoài Hóa.

  • 你好 up能把视频转到国内的b站吗?

    • 暂时没有时间和精力做这个事情,而且听说B站最大不能上传超过8G的视频,所以我目前没有B站的考虑和想法。

  • I love chinese history, arts and culture! ♥ I appreciate your video. Thanks for that.

    • Thanks for your beautiful comments, friend! Have a wonderful day!

    • 您才是真正的文艺青年,非常带感的诗,韵脚很舒服,意境很高远👍🏻💐💐💐

  • 这样自然古朴的村镇千万不要用现代任何装饰工程改变它的面貌,因为繁华大都市都看厌了。一定要留下古镇目前的风景,太迷人了。
