Fenghuang (凤凰) Hunan Province: One of the most beautiful towns in China!

Last summer I spent two months travelling around China. One of the places I visited was Fenghuang; an ancient town in Hunan province and in my opinion, the most beautiful of all the places I visited in China.

Enjoy the photos:

This is just about as close as we can get to the fantasy worlds of role-playing games. Wonderful trip and fabulous pictures.

I just love this kind of old idyllic looking Chinese cities, built on a human scale, integrating nicely with the natural environment.
Thanks for the nice pics, keep 'em coming :-)

I agree, there's not a single tall building in this town and there never should be. In fact I think the tallest structure in Fenghuang probably is a pagoda!
