Chinese don't really care about historical buildings. Up and down they simply demolish the entire old blocks and put there a brand new buildings instead. That's why places like Fenghuang are especially interesting.

There are a lot of people in traditional costumes. I'm pretty sure it's a rented one for a photo session.

There are a lot of construction works. Looks like they're getting ready to high season. Though I was surprised that a lot of workers do not use automation at all.

The old city is surrounded by the wall. They really like things like that here.

Closer to the sunset people come to mass dancing. Looks really cool. It reminds more a physical exercises, though people are really happy with the event.

Though be careful with photos from the Internet. Real life view might be a bit more humble and photos will simply increase your expectations.

During dark hours the night life goes crazy. Well, there are a lot of clubs with extremely high sound and workers try to attract visitors. Though in the best case visitors are just sitting there and drinking.

Around 11 in the evening clubs are shutting down and only some drunk youngsters shout across the river. Though after 1-2 hours city completely goes sleepy.
On the next day in the morning I will move to the next point.
