An Ancient Town (凤凰古城)

A 5 hours journey from the city of Zhang Jia Jie lies a thousand years old small town, not entirely sure it worth all the trouble with the travelling, but the night view and allegedly the dawn was totally fascinating!

All these old buildings had been improvised into bars and shops~~

Together with the Tuo-River(沱江), the night view of the phoenix town gain its fame

It used to be free of charge...but since early this year...a compulsory entrance fees of 148 yuan had been implemented~ Nothing goes free here~

The night view was really breathtaking(I heard the dawn was even so)...but a 5 hours journey and an entrance fees of 148 bucks is perhaps alittle too much

Anyway, walking along the river did gave a very relaxing and tranquilized feeling~

One of the must do is of course cruising the river

Again..I think the place would be a great getaway without the crowd it presented~ Everywhere is packed~ What a waste~

All sorts of local snacks and souvenirs can be bought here~ 
Their ginger sweet is one of the must try~~
