    This is the free Temple which is located directly in the city centre. There are beautiful views of the temple to the old town and the river.

    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.

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.
