What is the fun of the ancient city of Phoenix?

If the ancient city during the day shows the distant past, then the night is noisy today. Alley to and from people, the bar sound of color, accompanied by occasional slippery sound of ears, looking at the Tuo River to enjoy the breathtaking night. Life, it should be so.

What is fun outside the ancient city?
To the Phoenix, in addition to playing the ancient city of Phoenix, the ancient city also has a wonderful to be missed. You can also:

two, experience drifting
three, across the canyon
four, experience bonfire party
First, visit the Miao Village
Among them, the Miao Village is mainly composed of Miao Wangcheng, Slate Board Village, Shanjiang Miao Village, Miao Valley, Laozhai Village and Dehang Miao Village. If you want to enjoy Miao Village style, then I recommend Miao Wangcheng. If you want to enjoy the scenery Miao Ren Valley most recommended. These Miao Village different styles, each allows you to experience a different kind of ethnic life, and ultimately can be based on your schedule to choose one or two to visit on it.
Second, experience drifting
If you experience drifting Ximen gorge drifting, wanjiang river rafting, mengdong river rafting three choices. If you have time, you can choose the nearest Ximen gorge drifting from Phoenix. If you like thrills, you can go and experience the Mehndi River rafting.
Tips: rafting is a seasonal project, roughly the time in June-October, there will be a slight change according to the weather. Specific time to play can consult businesses before traveling.
Third, across the canyon
Near Aphrodite Avalokitesvara, Drifting Valley, Tian Long Gorge and Tongren Grand Canyon. One of the first recommended is the Aizhai Grand Canyon, because there are comparable to Zhangjiajie Aizhai Bridge, a total length of 1176 meters across the canyon, there is no piers, very shocking. When you drive over the bridge, you probably do not think anything, but when you look at the bridge, you realize it's a real architectural wonder. And do not use panoramic mode, you can not beat the whole bridge.
Fourth, experience bonfire party
Came to Phoenix, how can we not watch a Phoenix campfire. "Amidst the Phoenix" is the must-see party to the ancient city of Phoenix. The total investment of about 130 million yuan, took more than three years to create. Divided into songs, chasing love, parting, thoughts, nirvana, prayer six chapters, a total length of 65 minutes. Is based on Shen Congwen's "Border Town" adapted. Venue is located in the world after the Phoenix Hotel, the price of 160 yuan, the price of 80 students, starting around 8:00.

The first day: to reach the ancient city of Phoenix, free to visit the ancient city (if you want to see the attractions you can buy the ancient city of nine sets of tickets), watch the night campfire, after the party you can go enjoy the night view, overnight stay in the ancient city.

The third day: arrangements can be a bit casual, wander around the ancient city, buy some specialty, ready to return to the city, the end of the three days of the Phoenix trip. If you reserve for four days in the local time, you can play on the third day drifting is not bad.
If you are traveling by car tourists, you want to go around shopping can choose to drive past. However, here to remind everyone that the best is now the ancient city of the hotel stores to buy tickets, because some of the temporary attractions attractions ticket, then the fare will be very expensive, and individual tickets can be issued immediately not much. Suggest that you do not listen to the local soliciting people talking about the discount tickets, if they do not give money to the vote, the complainant.
Tips: Tourists in the Miao and Canyon play time, we must respect the local customs.

Phoenix What is worth buying?
Phoenix has many special snacks, such as essential blood table duck duck, bacon, bandit chicken, Tuo fish shrimp and so on. Need to give you some advice on eating: 1. Fenghuang eat a lot of places in the ancient city, but it is best not to eat in the waterfront restaurant, after all, where rent is higher, the same dishes sold here will be more expensive; 2. Before ordering a certain To see clearly the menu, plainly the consumption.
In addition to the delicious restaurant, Miao silverware, packaging and bacon, packaging blood duck, kiwi (recommended heart kiwi), ginger sugar, wooden hammer cake, batik, etc. are worth buying. However, if you buy silver ornaments, it is recommended that you go to the larger stores, street stalls rarely really large stores more expensive, under normal circumstances bargain, but cut depends on how much you skill. Bacon is the same, there is no protection of the street bacon, do not buy stalls.
Phoenix also has many other street food, such as fried shrimp, artichoke 粑, fried fish shrimp, rice tofu, sour radish, etc., these basic prices are not expensive, buy some taste different food.
