    The hanging-feet building in the ancient city of Phoenix originated in the Tang and Song Dynasties. During the Tang Dynasty, when Wang Huajian County, a barren and barren land of Phoenix, appeared sporadically and gradually became a scale after the Yuan Dynasty. With the vicissitudes of time, the old has gone and the new has come. The buildings are constantly renovated and replaced in the cycle of the sun and the moon. At present, most of the suspenders in the ancient city of Phoenix retain the architectural style of the Ming and Qing dynasties. The hanging feet buildings on the riverbank of the ancient city of Phoenix, with their spectacular lineup, are very rare in China. It not only gives people a spectacular feeling in shape, but also guides people to imagine and explore in connotation. It represents the soul of a regional nation in the long history of ups and downs, such as a ballad, an epic, records the stormy history, records the common people's stories.

    If many times! Love it! It's very comfortable to live in a hanging-feet building and have a snack at night.

    Diaojiao Tower is the symbol of Tujia nationality in Western Hunan. These buildings are also the representatives of the ancient city of Phoenix. The Tuojiang River, maybe under the commercial eaves, can not hide the beauty of all this...

    It is 240 meters long and belongs to the buildings of the Qing Dynasty and the early period of the Republic. Now it still lives in more than a dozen families. The hanging-feet buildings of the hanging-feet building group are divided into upper and lower floors equally. They are all five-column six-hanging or five-column eight-hanging bucket-type wooden structures with distinct characteristics of being built anywhere. The upper layer is broad, the lower layer occupies a very irregular area; the upper layer is complex in manufacturing technology and exquisite in workmanship!

    People who come to Phoenix will naturally be attracted by the hanging-feet building along the Tuojiang River. This building with Miao characteristics is built on both sides of the Tuojiang River. It faces the ancient official road in front of the building and is supported by several thick poles on the side of the water. This design with Miao characteristics can save space. The number of suspension tower near Hongqiao is the most concentrated.

    Tujia hanging-feet buildings are common in Western Hunan and Western Hubei, but such a continuous scale is the ancient city of Phoenix. It is said that the hanging-feet building has a history of thousands of years, especially along the river. It is hydrophilic and not too damp. It is very suitable for living. The hanging-feet building along both sides of the Tuojiang River in Phoenix City has become a beautiful business card here.

    Although I heard that commercialization is very serious, but choose to go out in the morning to watch can see a more primitive state, strong flavor of Western Hunan. Night and day are two totally different feelings, one static and one dynamic.

    Suspended tower is a major feature of Western Hunan, which is the best way to distinguish this ancient town from other ancient towns. Riding down the river by boat, the hanging-feet buildings on both sides of the river are very beautiful and exciting.
