中国湖南省湘西土家族苗族自治州凤凰县金坪路凤凰古城

Day 6 [Feb 14, 2016] The vibe is absolutely different to visit the Phoenix Ancient City in the day, which you get to see the other side of this ancient city - serenity. I took a traditional boat ride powered by manpower, along the beautiful Tuojiang River to see traditional stilt houses that are built along the river. With a picturesque village like this, everyone can be a good photographer. Haha. Tips: Highly recommended to go before modernisation destroys the simplicity and serenity here. It is definitely an experience of a lifetime for me. In order to avoid super heavy traffic congestion, the coach driver and our tour guide decided to take an alternative route to go back to Changde. The freeway was built by the Hunan State government, to avoid heavy traffic congestion. And turned out, it's the best idea ever! Haha!

中国湖南省张家界永定区土家风情园

Day 4 [Feb 12, 2016] Locally known as Tu Si Cheng, was a palace for the Tujia royalty (one of the minority ethnic groups in China). It now serves as a museum to exhibit the rich culture and customs of the Tujia people. The palace is a 9-storey Tujia style building, which is a Stilt building (locally known as Diaojiaolou). It holds the Guinness World Record of "The World's Highest Stilt Building". Being a fan of cultural studies, I reckon it's totally worth a visit to this gorgeous historical palace that proudly exhibits the Tujia's military, farming, architecture and local food culture. Tips: You've got to watch a knives juggling show performed by a Tujia performing artist aged 75. Of course, tipping him if you adore his performance by the end of the short show :)
