    Most of Fenhuang was unappealing, but then you come upon the ancient town area and wow, very scenic. Restaurants, karaoke bars, shops, etc. Even more scenic at night with their lighting.  more »

    Very nice ancient town. In perfect condition with lots to do and see. Only downside is that it is pretty hard to get there and away.

    很有意境的地方,沿河兩岸不少的夜店,有些人覺得扞格不入,也有人認為是與時俱進… 這地方值得自己來感受一下番。

Where to stay in Fenghuang County

Travelers will find the main bulk of the accommodations in Fenghuang County located in the town of Fenghuang. The old town district, close to the water, has plenty of characterful inns, set in the rustic wooden buildings for which the area has become known. If you're looking for larger hotels, explore options away from the knotted streets of the old town. Along the main regional roads, some grand and luxurious hotels sit alongside a handful of simpler options.
