how to eat?

Qingshui River both sides of the restaurants, noodle restaurants quite a lot, along the town of riverside restaurants overall more expensive than Hongan town. Here are some recommended local specialties. (Pure tourist point of view, if more delicious, please contact me to make up)

First, rice tofu

I guess the name is used to make tofu way out, but the raw materials into rice. Taste tastes a bit like jelly, cool, dip hot sauce.

Second, angle fish

Many shops are dotted with horn fish signboards, restaurants in the town along the edge of the town is about ¥ 50 / kg, I do not like to eat fish and the price is not very cute, so there is no taste, do not know how the taste. But it is indeed a local specialty food, friends who are interested can try.

Third, shredded squid

Is the food on the barbecue stand at night, we were in Hongan town side to eat barbecue, grilled, do not let any seasoning. After dipping sauce seasoning to eat, due to the taste of mustard in the seasoning, I'll eat it. Clear taste to eat in general, the boss can help you brush some barbecue hot sauce, the next table guests eat so relish, it should be more authentic way to eat.

Fourth, breakfast

According to my observation, the noodles are not special snacks here, but at this moment, I only found the noodles for breakfast, and when there were bazaars, I saw some fried and skewered corn. The taste here is not bad, so recommend it.

About living

Online booking: Ants cellular channel can be found "Hong Anzhen" (Chongqing Xiushan that), where to go online search can not find Hong An, the border city of these two places, "location" to search Xiushan or Huayuan, and then "landmark" inside Input edge city or Hong An only to find. Ctrip above found Hongan town, but can not find the border town, the same way to where.

Where live: side of the town side of the lively some light at night, a little light to light the feeling of the Phoenix, Hong some simple quaint town, is a not how to develop the ancient street, only the white street lights at night. Want to live where to look at their own feelings, in short, where to live will not be inconvenient, because the two towns are not large.

Accommodation Price: General online set about 80 or so you can live in the standard room, air conditioning alone Wei, but the conditions are not too good, better to ¥ 200 ~ 350 between. If you do not book directly in advance, some of them may be cheaper than online.

Here the network popularity later, many hotel owners do not love to order from the Internet, so even if the success of online orders have to call to confirm whether there is a room. In addition, a lot of accommodation near the edge of the city, do not book directly to live.

About purchase

Amazingly, Hongan and Border Town I did not find a store selling ancient town postcards, many other ancient town there are gift shops there, but there are a lot of selling the book depicting the edge of the city. There are some local grocery store, I think inside the bottle cans and bamboo baskets sold is a good match, rich in local characteristics and also very good looking, the key is different from the gifts sold in other ancient towns should be local of.

Raiders on the edge of the city temporarily to this matter, if you have more information or questions about the local direct messages, we will promptly feedback, What Mody.
