In the summer vacation, I went to the ancient city of Phoenix for a long time. Before I went there, I didnt know Phoenix very well. It was dusk to take a direct bus from Zhangjiajie to get there. But as soon as I arrived in Phoenix, I found that the shop was extremely easy to find, and there were so many people who lived there. And bargaining with the boss yourself, you can save some money or avoid friendship. Dear friends, to Phoenix, you must live in Tujia Hangjiao on the Minjiang River to enjoy the price. Well, a double standard (individual bathroom) with air conditioning can talk about 60 days. It seems that you don t have to be too nervous when traveling. The inn of Fenghuang Ancient City is so amazing. Family on the banks of the Minjiang River are next to each other, all of which are Tujia s hanging feet. Oh, fortunately, you can live in the Linjiang Room at the same price and listen to folk songs every morning.
