Fenghuang is an ancient town and a small county in north-west Hunan Province. It is known for its natural beauty, rich history and culture, as well as its colorful ethnic customs. Unique wooden houses constructed on stilts are built along the riverbank. This kind of house is called a Diaojiaolou (Chinese for “building with hanging legs”). The design keeps the buildings safe from the spring floods. These ancient buildings in the distinct Qing Dynasty style are well preserved.
