I found the old, small city to be clean and well preserved, a place where time seems to have stopped a long, long time ago. I've met no tourists, I've seen no tourists shops and not many people on it...

Absolutely worth the detour - the town has thus far avoided turning into a tourist attraction like Fenghuang or Hongjiang and has kept its beauty and serenity. Residents still live here, so explore qu...
The ancient city of Fenghuang in Hunan is well known. The Border Town on the banks of the Li River is so beautiful in Shen Congwens pen, but with the development of tourism, the ancient city of Fenghuang is becoming more and more overcrowded.
Inheriting the residents of Xiangyang Ancient City in 2200, it lacks a strong commercial flavor, but it has a cultural atmosphere. Compared with tourism, the ancient city of Xiangyang is more suitable for living in the sunset. Interpretation, here, every moment is slow.
When the ancient city of Fenghuang was already overcrowded, the small town of Xiangyang was very rare, still maintaining its bleakness and tranquility. It was 1400 years earlier than the ancient town of Dayan in Lijiang, Yunnan, 900 years earlier than the ancient city of Fenghuang. The classic poem "A piece of ice heart in the jade pot" of the great writer Wang Changling was born.

The ancient city in the evening is quiet and beautiful. Although the ancient city of Xiangyang is not big, but every street in every street has a unique feeling. It is suitable for one person to travel across the street and every lane. The guide said, "The aunt who sells the spring rolls will sing, the uncle who plays the barbecue plays the guitar, and the sweeping grandfather writes a good word." It is really slow and comfortable.
When we were in elementary school, we learned the ancient poems of Wang Changling. Although I was young at the time, when I read Luoyangs relatives and friends, I would like to ask, a piece of ice heart in the jade pot, the artistic conception of this poem, you can also feel the sadness and helplessness of the poet. Now I have read it carefully, and I still feel that it is meaningful. The Furong House, when Wang Changling and his friends were separated from each other, became one of the reasons for my coming to Huaihua in Xiangxi. Since ancient times, there has been Huaihua, the name of the gateway to the whole and the throat of the whole Chu. It is a place where many ethnic groups live together. The ancient city of Xiangyang is embedded in this passionate land. The ancient city is surrounded by water on three sides and is the most preserved in the country. One of the intact Ming and Qing Dynasties, the citys bluestone streets are criss-crossed, and the Ming and Qing Dynasties are everywhere. Stroll through the ancient city and look for the unique taste of the ancient city of Xiangyang.
In a costume,
walking in the ancient city,
listening to the sound of the wind,
feeling the flow of time,
people come to the market,
distant horseshoes can not stop,
Prosperous reproductionhh/ If you come here,
can listen to the sound of the footsteps on the stone pavement,
look at the blue sky and white clouds ,
into Huaihua into the human fireworks ~
it is low-key, silent,
is a different city,
no other ancient town of prosperity, like its ease;
Unlike other ancient towns and horses, I am delighted that it has no competition with the world~
Yangyang Ancient City is dominated by Ming and Qing architecture,
with red sandstone, bluestone, Xiaoqingwa, stone, etc.
And organically integrated the local Yi and Miao architectural features,

The ancient dwellings are bright and clear,
ancient palace is gorgeous and exquisite,
architectural style is very distinctive.
Nestled in the upper reaches of Yuanshui, Qianyang Ancient City is one of the best-preserved examples of ancient cities dating from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The ancient city is surrounded by water on three sides. It is a frontier town in Xiang-Chu-Miao Region and also known as the “gateway to Yunnan and Guizhou”. Of the original five city gates, four still remain to this day. The West Gate is also known as Zhongzheng Gate. The gate and the building are incredibly well preserved with the words “Zhong Zheng Men” still inscribed on the gate, written by Dai Li, dating back from the days of the Warlord Era. The well-preserved fishbone-shape road layout is formed by the two main streets in the north and south. It was called Nine Streets and Eighteen Lanes in ancient times and there are a variety of ancient buildings on both sides of the street such as the county government, academies, temples, inns and theaters.
