We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Fenghuang Travel Guide
Location: Fenghuang Ancient Town is located in the west of Hunan Province.

Population: 419,600

Area: with an area of 1,751 square kilometers

Nationalities: Miao Ethnic Minority

History: The history of the town, called "Fenghuang" in Chinese, could date back as early as the Qin Dynasty (221 BC - 206 BC). The town is in Fenghuang County of Hunan Province, where Tujia and Miao ethnic groups have lived for thousands of years. Historically, Fenghuang remained poor, with only small-scale agriculture and industry. It may have been hard for local residents to imagine that one day tourists to the ancient town would bring the town 190 million yuan, or 27.8 million US dollars, in income per year, almost 58 percent of the GDP of the whole county. But today it is actually the truth.

The government of Fenghuang County decided to develop the tourism industry after the South Great Wall was discovered in 2000. In 2002, an experienced touring company that marketed the famous nearby tourist attraction Zhangjiajie was authorized to manage Fenghuang's tourism industry. That was the beginning of the ancient town's remarkable story. Climate: Shaoshan has the humid subtropical monsoon climate with distinctive seasons. The annual average temperature is 16.7℃. The coldest month is January with the average temperature 4.4℃. The hottest month is July with the average temperature 28.9℃. Shaoshan has an annual average precipitation of 1,358 mm with 1719.9 mm as the highest record.

Transportation: There are direct buses from Jishou to Fenghuan from 06:00 to 20:00. The bus journey is about one and a half hour.

There are mainly four ways around the ancient town: walking, taking a rowboat (RMB10 per person), renting a bicycle (RMB15) and renting a car (from RMB 50 to RMB150). It depends on you. Cycling about the county and a glide on Tuojiang River both are very interesting and impressive experiences. Renting a car to the attraction spots distances away from the county is convenient.

Specialties: The batik painting is very popular, which is a symbol of the Miao nationality’s handicraft. You can buy the local blue Miao skirt, giving you a special experience when walking around the ancient town. Ginger sugar is another local speciality

Local Food: Fenghuang Pickled Radish, Tofu in Pickled Vegetable Soup, Pickled Fish in Miao Ethnic Style,
