When a bird is 500 years old, it will burn itself. But it can resurrect the dead, and then it can become more beautiful and never die. The ancient city is just named after the bird Phoenix. It has been the areas inhabited by Miao and Tujia ethnic groups since ancient times. It's a nirvana of tourism.

When you go to the city, you will feel amazing that her beauty is just like her name. Boating on the Tuojiang River, feeling the colorful life of the native, appreciating the arts and crafts of folk, hearing the sound of sweeping temple, watching the moon reflection lying under the bridge, tasting the unique food, enjoying the leisure time in the bar.
