Trip Moments

Zhenyuan County, Guizhou Province, is an ancient city with a long history. Since the founding of the county in the 30th year of Qin Zhaowang (277 BC), it has a history of 2294 years. The ancient city of Fenghuang, 200 kilometers away from Zhenyuan County, has unlimited scenery, while Zhenyuan has been quietly keeping a low profile.
Because Zhenyuan is not far from Phoenix, the scenery is similar. Both ancient cities are in the mountains, and there is a river passing through the ancient city. The number of tourists in Phoenix is much more than that of Zhenyuan, and the degree of commercialization is also higher. I like to go to the Phoenix and enjoy the quietness of Zhenyuan.
Wuyang River divides the ancient town of Zhenyuan into two parts, the north bank and the north part. The river bank is the old city, and the south bank is the old city. Both cities and towns were built in the Ming Dynasty, and some of the city walls and gates still exist. There are many monuments in the ancient city. The former residence of Zhou Dawen is a well-preserved courtyard.
Zhou Dawen's former residence was built by his grandfather in the Qing Dynasty in the Qing Dynasty. It has a history of more than 100 years and covers an area of 1,250 square meters. The former residence of Zhou Dawen is also the former site of the underground branch of the Zhenyuan.
Yangyang River is the mother river of Zhenyuan. The river is clean and clear. The riverside is the most lively place in the ancient city. There are many restaurants, bars and inns along the river. The lights are bright and colorful at night.
Occasionally, the small boat shuttles over the river, and the green hills are reflected in the distance. The ancient city is quiet and peaceful.
