Xiangxi Tuojiang River is the mother river of the Ancient Phoenix City. Flowing around the ancient city wall of Fenghuang town, Tuojiang River reflects the Tu minority buildings along it. These hundreds of years’buildings add more colors to Tuojiang River. As you go downstream through the Rainbow Bridge, A picture of water town will spread in front of you: The Wanshou Palace, The Wanming Tower, The Duocui Building, And so on and so forth.

Ancient City Wall is located along the south bank, built with the red bricks in an elegant and great atmosphere. Tu ethnic buildings along the Tuojiang River form a unlimited picture which is describe the traditional southern water town in China.

Tuojiang River was muddy brown since it was raining at that time, but on a perfectly clear day it was said to be emerald green, reflecting the mountain scape in which the town is at the foot. Much of the structures like the walls, temples, bridges, wells, stone steps and stilt houses remain their old structures and styles ranging back to Ming and Qing Dynasties.
