Phoenix Ancient Town Introduction

Brief Introduction
Phoenix Town, surrounded by mountains and rivers, is situated in the western part of Central China´s Hunan Province, south of the Tujia and Miao prefectures.

Phoenix Ancient Town has a very famous architecture style to symbol its special identity--House o­n stilt. With upturned eaves and corners, the stilted houses are connected by corridors o­n three sides. Riding a small boat drifting along the Tuojiang River, you will see those unique buildings along the riverside, where local Miao people live. The design of these dwellings is amazing.

Phoenix Town´s history can be traced back to the Qin Dynasty (221-206BC). During ancient times it was called "Wu Gan," before being changed to its present Feng Huang name in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

According to New Zealand writer Rewi Alley, this ancient small town is o­ne of the two most picturesque small towns in China, with colorful and hospitable people.
