  • Love this place - captured a picture of a woman holding an umbrella (it was raining) washing her clothes at the side  more »
  • It is not of the best attractions you can visit in Fenghuang, but with the high cost of entry would not visit it, and at the end and at the end they will always find something interesting in the buildings of Fenghuang. Avoid large crowds do not visit her in August.
