The Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture is located in the northwestern part of Hunan Province. It has numerous caves, canyons and waterfalls. The scenery is very beautiful. Fenghuang County, within the jurisdiction, was listed in the first batch of national historical and cultural cities. There are also a large number of natural landscapes and cultural relics. Over 400 years of local governance has left behind unique worship, marriage, and funeral customs along with a shamanic culture. There are also various museums and attractions that reflect the history and culture of the Miao nationality in Jishou City—the capital of Xiangxi.

888***18In Guzhang County, west of Hunan, there is a unique red stone forest. Hongshilin is located in Hongshilin Town, Guzhang County, Hunan Province, and is opposite to Furong Town in Western Hunan Province. It is a pearl on the golden corridor from Zhangjiajie to Phoenix. It is the only red carbonate rock forest in China and the only red carbonate rock forest in the Cambrian. It was designated as a national geological park in 2005.
用脚下的路丈量这个世界The magnificence is true, but it takes luck to see the whole picture. During the November, Guizhou, Hunan, always had this kind of rainy and rainy scenery, and it was white when the altitude was slightly higher. There is a bus from Jishou Railway Station Square directly to the town under the bridge.
小菜旅途故事When you come to Xiangxi, in addition to Fenghuang Ancient Town and Zhangjiajie, this ancient city of Jishou Qianzhou, which is known as the first of the four ancient towns in Xiangxi and has a history of more than 4200 years, is still a place worth checking in~

📍Detailed address: Renmin South Road, Jishou City, Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, Hunan Province
The ancient city is located on the bank of the Wanrong River in the downtown area of Jishou, the capital of Xiangxi Autonomous Prefecture. It has a long history. According to reports, settlements have appeared here from the Xia and Shang dynasties more than 4,200 years ago, and then important commercial wharves were developed. During the period, it has become an important economic and political center for the Miao people, and it is known as "the first of the four ancient towns in western Hunan."
Although the current ancient city of Qianzhou no longer has its former status, it still retains more of its cultural and historical characteristics. Various historical relics, natural scenery and folk culture are interspersed with it, which is quite worth watching.
In the morning, the fog is faint, and the mountains are like mountains. Later, the mist gradually spreads out and the sun shines. Furong Town Tujia Diaolou Building is like a landscape painting with vines and trees. The ancient town of Yongshun County in Xiangxi is famous for its Xie Jin movie "Furong Town" and has become one of the most popular ancient towns in Hunan.
Xizhou Tongzhu, Tuwang Bridge, Tuwanghang Palace, Wangcun Waterfall, Wuli Shiban Street, Xiangxi Folk Customs Museum are all worth visiting. Especially recommended Wangcun Waterfall and Tuwang Palace, the former It is magnificent, and the latter is magnificent, overlooking the town of Furong and the Great Falls.
The stone street in Furong Town is very historical, and it is also the location of the film.
m tofu is a well-known food in the town and it is worth tasting!
In addition to the famous Fenghuang ancient town, Xiangxi also has a relatively simple Miao culture of folk culture. Anyone who has been to Phoenix knows that there are many Miao villages in Phoenix. They still maintain traditional customs and habits. They will sing folk songs and greet guests when they meet guests.
But now many Miao villages are open for visitors to visit and interact. Many local children have been called by their parents to welcome tourists. They will sing folk songs around you, or sing along to you to give them money. Sometimes you look at their begging eyes and don't give them some money. Although tourism will bring a local economy, poor management will also destroy some traditional folk culture.
I especially like to go to some ethnic minority areas and come to Xiangxi. How can I not go to Miao Village? It is located in the Miao Miao Village in the Guzhang County to Jishou, and the Chinese translation is Beautiful Miao Village in the Canyon Creek Side. Not only can you experience the local folk culture, but you can also enjoy the beautiful natural scenery.
Before entering Miao Village, there is a special wine song, a group of people sent representatives and Miao girls to the song, and then drink three bowls of rice wine can pass. Every Miao Amei has a good voice, always singing a moving song, so that I am envious of this five-tone person.
A small stream flows from the village, and a multi-flag suspension bridge connects the two banks. Walking on it deliberately swayed, as if returning to the childhood of the sexually naughty moment.
Through this long passage, you can go to the depths of the village to experience the Miao culture.
I really like those places that are not overexploited, always retaining the unique simplicity and authenticity.
