About Tuo River

The Tuo River is located in Fenghuang County. Tourists know it as the river along the walls of Phoenix Ancient Town. The Tuo River's waters are clear and blue, and centuries-old dwelling are contained on both banks of the river. On the south bank of the river lies an ancient city wall made of purple sandstone. Even after all these years, it still looks spectacular. Near the east gate of Minjiang River, there are attractions such as the Wanshou Building, Wanming Tower and the Zhancui Building. The "jumping rock" near the north gate of the river served as an important entry-exit point of the Phoenix Ancient City. It's a great spot for a photo!

    It's better to visit the Tuojiang River early in the morning, avoiding the crowds in the daytime and singing loudly in the bar at night. At this time, the Tuojiang River just wakes up with a trace of dream. Walking along the river, the wind of willows and willows is not cold. It brings a few fragrance of spring, which makes people feel slightly drunk and intoxicated in the verdant spring. There were diligent elder sister-in-law and younger sister-in-law in the raccoon clothes along the river, suspicious of Cuicui's figure. The colorful dresses and skirts are reflected on the green water and the reflection of the hanging-feet tower, which paints a colorful Tuojiang morning roll. A flat boat pierces the calm reflection of the river and opens the prologue of Tuojiang River's life for another day. The beauty of Tuojiang River is in water. In peach-red and willow-green spring, the green branches and buds along the coast with pink spring flowers adorn a green river. The black tiles and yellow slabs on both sides of the river are reflected on the water. The shadows are scattered, the waves are waving, and the colours are colorful but fresh and elegant. As a result of the fall, there are several falls on the river surface. The ups and downs are similar to small waterfalls. The arc-shaped fall changes the monotony of the water surface, adds the rhythm of the Tuojiang River, beautifies the scenery, enriches the fun of water-playing, and naturally becomes the "good photographer" pursuit lens. The beauty of Tuojiang River lies in the bridge. The Tuojiang River in the core scenic spot is not long, but there are old bridges and new bridges with different shapes. Bridges and bridges build the scenic line of the road on the Tuojiang River - "There are ancient stone Tingbu Bridges. Clear water pours out of the stones, and the spring water flows eastward, attracting tourists to step on their feet and experience the wild fun that is hard to find in the city; there are also old wooden plank bridges with squeaky noises, which continue in a zigzag way. There is the ancient wind of Phoenix; there is also the newly built high arch cement Pavilion bridge, standing proudly on the river like a flock of chickens, showing the world the new look of Phoenix, enriching the landscape line of Tuojiang Bridge and becoming a tourist attraction overlooked by the people; but the most fascinating one is the corridor bridge, Hongqiao, which was built in the Hongwu period of the Ming Dynasty, with a history of more than 600 years. The loft on the bridge was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution. The loft on the Hongqiao Bridge was restored in 2000 according to the original design. It has become a favorite place for tourists to enjoy the ancient city of Phoenix. Sitting on the corridor bridge, I soaked a pot of scented tea, and watched the scenery of the wind and pushed the Xuan. How many times have I seen it all before the window? The beauty of Tuojiang River is in the hanging-feet building. The beauty of Tuojiang River, in addition to the ancient Bridge of Bishui, is the main element of the landscape. The beauty of the ancient city is nothing more than the simple suspension tower, eaves and black tile walls. On both sides of the Tuojiang River, hanging-feet towers are arranged along both sides of the river with high wooden pillars rooted in the water. Black tiles and smoked wooden buildings are interdependent. Carved wooden windows pick out all kinds of red lanterns, green hills and green waters, and old black tiles walls reflect clear waves, hanging over the river channel, forming a unique landscape, showing a light and elegant artistic conception of ink painting. Located in the southeastern part of the ancient city, Hangjiao Tower Group is one of the ancient buildings with strong Miao architectural characteristics in the ancient city of Phoenix, which faces the ancient official road before and hangs over the Tuojiang River. 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 dozens of families. This kind of building is ventilated, damp-proof, summer and cold-proof. It is the unique architectural craft of Miao nationality, and has high aesthetic value of crafts and cultural relics.

    The Tuojiang River is in the ancient city of Phoenix in Western Hunan. The water in the Tuojiang River is very clear and green. There are green water plants in the water. They dance gracefully against the river. They stretch their sleeves as if they were waving gently to friends coming from a long way. On both sides of the Tuojiang River, they are all high and low, with uniform hanging feet. They are all on the banks of the Tuojiang River. The vertical and horizontal assembly of Chinese fir boards with wooden pillars supports the suspension foot building with Hunan national characteristics. The stacked black tiles connect all the interdependent and high-low buildings together. Decorated with wooden railings and carved windows, a series of various red lanterns were picked out and reflected in the clear light of Tuojiang River. The harmonious and elegant artistic conception was only found in Tang poetry, Song poetry and ink landscape painting.

    I was on a boat trip in a day time (around 15 minutes). Usually in the morning there a not so many people. But it's good to experience in evening time too, cause the city lights look fabulous when it gets darker. There are lot of waterfalls and a small nice island on the river. It took like 2 hours to walk around.

    The beauty of Tuojiang River is mainly due to the brilliant lights of night scenery, but there are many water plants in Tuojiang River, which is a little scary, and many local people throw garbage into the river, feeling a little distressed, if not well maintained, tourists will be less and less. Many local residents wash clothes and dishes and chopsticks by the river. Although it feels interesting, they are equally worried about water quality.

    The scenery on both sides of the Tuojiang River is very good. There are many hanging-feet buildings. You can also go boating on the Tuojiang River and enjoy the scenery of both sides of the Taiwan Strait at close range. The boating elder brother can also sing folk songs, which is very interesting. But the water of Tuojiang River looks muddy, so it's better not to play with it. At the same time, the water is deep in flood season. We must pay attention to safety when we play. There is a beautiful tower beside the river. You can enjoy Hongqiao from a close distance. If you go to Phoenix, you must not miss the boating on the Tuojiang River.

    A good place to see. The scenery on both sides of the Tuojiang River is very good. There are many hanging-feet buildings. Especially at night. It's beautiful. It's much more beautiful than the old city of Lijiang at night. It's a pleasure to enjoy the scenery of both sides of the Straits by boating on the Tuojiang River in summer. Sometimes Miao girls sing folk songs, which are very beautiful. But during the flood season of Tuojiang River, we must pay attention to safety. The pagodas along the river, the Three Kings Temple and the Hongqiao are all very beautiful. Shen Congwen's former residence, Xiong Xiling's former residence and the Three Kings Temple are all scenic spots that must be visited.

    The ancient city of Phoenix was built by mountains and rivers. Water refers to the Tuojiang River. Tuojiang River is very long, the most prosperous place is in the area of Hongqiao Wind and Rain Building. At night, there are bright lights and KTV bars will be noisy all night. In the morning, there will be mist on the Tuojiang River. When the sun comes out, the Tuojiang River will be very clear. After rain, the Tuojiang River will be turbulent, and it will be more exciting to take a bamboo raft cruise on the river.

    Tuojiang River is the mother river of the ancient city Phoenix, which flows slowly along the city wall and feeds the children of the ancient city from generation to generation. Sitting on the Wupeng boat, listening to the chant of the Lord of Fugong, and looking at the Tujia Diaojiao Tower, which has a hundred years of history on both sides of the Taiwan Strait, has a unique charm. Down the river, through Hongqiao, a picture scroll of Jiangnan Water Township is displayed in front of us: Longevity Palace, Wanming Pagoda, Chuicui Tower... A feeling of being far away from the world arises leisurely. Tuojiang River is the largest river in Fenghuang County. It is the first tributary of Wushui River. There are two sources: the North source is Wuchao River, which originates in the Shanan Valley of Heku. The beach is dangerous, the rainwater rises and the travel is blocked. The Tuojiang River runs through the central part of Fenghuang County from west to East and runs through 9 townships such as Laer Mountain, Machong, ebb well, Duli, Nanhua Mountain, Tuojiang Town, Guanzhuang, Qiaoxikou and Mujiangping. The Tuojiang River in Jiuqu ileum flows quietly throughout the ages. Next to it, and depending on it, is this natural and simple Tuojiang family. The South Bank of Tuojiang River is an ancient city wall, which is made of purple red sand and stone. It is elegant and magnificent. There are two towers in the East and north of the city wall, which have gone through vicissitudes of life and are still spectacular. The Tuojiang River is clear, the river near the city wall is very shallow, the water flow is gentle, you can see the wavering water grass in Roupoli, which can support a long pole. The hanging-feet buildings along the Tuojiang River stand in the Tuojiang River like a never-returning landscape near Dongmen Hongqiao and Beimen Juanyan.

    The scenic spot is good. Let's see, the commercialization here is a little serious. But the scenery on both sides of the Tuojiang River is good, and the hanging-feet buildings are very beautiful. There are many inns. It's better to book in advance for holidays. In the evening, you can see the performance of the border city, take pictures of the night scenes on both sides of the Tuojiang River, and go to bars to have sex.

    The water quality of Tuojiang River is still good, which is much worse than my trip to Jishou, western Hunan 20 years ago. Therefore, we should strengthen the upstream water quality and commercial management pollution, protect and make good use of it, standardize the ancient city of Phoenix, maintain the original ecology, benefit the Republic and leave precious cultural heritage for future generations.
