"Hongjiang Ancient Shopping Center is located in Hongjiang District, Huaihua City, Hunan Province, on the edge of Xuefeng Mountain in Western Hunan. It originated in the Spring and Autumn Period, formed in the heyday of Tang Dynasty, and flourished in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is one of the best-preserved ancient buildings in China. From a geographical point of view, Hongjiang River, although it is a small place, gathers Yuanshui, Wushui, and Shuishui that lead directly to Dongting into the Yangtze River. The river is wide and the water is vast, like a torrent, so it has the title of "Hongjiang". In the early years, Hongjiang was just an ordinary post and commercial port. It developed into a giant town with thousands of fireworks during the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is famous for collecting and distributing tung oil, wood, white wax, and opium. It is the material of the five provinces of Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi, Hunan and Shu. The distribution center is the economic, cultural and religious center of southwestern Hunan. It is known as the "Pearl of Western Hunan", "Little Nanjing", and "Southwestern Metropolis". There are more than 380 well-preserved ancient buildings in the Ming and Qing Dynasties in Hongjiang, such as shack houses, monasteries, escorts, banks, merchants, foreign firms, workshops, shops, inns, brothels, newspapers, cigarettes, etc., with a total area of about 300,000 Square meters, it can be regarded as the classic of the ancient architecture of the south of the Yangtze River in China. It is like a picture of the Ming, Qing, and the Republic of China. It is a specimen of China’s modern commercial development. It is also the most complete and richest in China. One of the ancient cities in China is praised by relevant experts as the "living fossil of the budding capitalism in inland China". At first, I had never heard of the small city of Hongjiang. Although due to work, I traveled between Hunan and Guizhou several times, all transiting in Huaihua. She was always by my side, but I ignored her existence. It was a friend who told me that next time I was on a business trip, I could go to Hongjiang to see if I was free. Then I knew there was this small town. Chinese folklorist Mr. Lin He believes that the earliest Silk Road in China was the Water Silk Road that began in the Shang Dynasty 3000 years ago. The route was that Sichuan’s materials passed through the Yangtze River into Youshui, and then entered Yuanling (Ancient) via Youyang and Xiushan. The Yuanshui River in Qianzhong County (the prefecture of Qianzhong County) was replaced by a boat on the Hongjiang River in Xiangxi Province through Huangping, Guizhou (the former site of the Lan Kingdom) to the source of the Qingshui River, and then the caravan was changed to Yunnan, Burma or Vietnam, and finally to the Western Regions via land or the Indian Ocean. . As an important transit point on the Maritime Silk Road. Hong Jiang also had the opportunity to nurture and produce a shopping mall. The Hongjiang Ancient Shopping Center has "Qichong, Eight Alleys, and Nine Streets". The scale is very large and there are many things to see. I went there in the afternoon, and I was afraid that I would not be able to return to Huaihua too late. See the leopard in the text. Hongjiang, an ancient city with the best preservation of historical relics; Hongjiang, an original ecological scenic spot that has not yet been commercialized; Hongjiang, a good place for you to visit!"
