Read you thousands of times, it is better to see you – the ancient city of Phoenix in the rain

Spread the love

Foreword
    “I have walked through many places, crossed many bridges, seen many times of clouds, and drank many kinds of wine, but only loved a person of the best age.” The most beautiful love story comes from China. The person who writes the most love letter – Mr. Shen Congwen’s pen, but how does Mr. Shen, who only has a primary school diploma, write such beautiful words? Mr. Phoenix, the hometown of Mr., is located in the southwest of Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture in Hunan Province. It is surrounded by green hills, lush forests, and a bay of clear water passing through the city. It is called the most beautiful small town in China by New Zealand writer Louis Alley. I grew up in the beautiful scenery, and I will always feel good when I am stunned. The most beautiful love story comes from the most beautiful town, no problem.

    I have never read Shen Congwen before, and I have never been to Phoenix. The praise of “Pein of the North Phoenix” and the question of the over-commercialization of the Phoenix in recent years have only heard the sound. Today, I finally have the opportunity to be there. Oh, really. I have always been interested in historical things, especially in ancient towns. Although more and more commercial packaging has made many ancient towns completely unconventional, they still can’t stop my longing for the ancient town.

     First seen phoenix
    Driving from Chengdu, passing through Chongqing and Guizhou, more than 900 kilometers, arrived at the legendary Fenghuang Ancient City on the afternoon of the next day. Perhaps in order to respond to the “smoke rain phoenix” scene, when we arrived, the sky of the phoenix floated rain, perhaps this is the way it greets the guests romantically, we stayed at an inn on the riverside.

     Fenghuang Ancient City
    The beautiful and charming ancient city of Fenghuang is located in the middle of the Lijiang River in the southeast of Fenghuang County. It was originally called the Tang Dynasty and has been built in the Tang Dynasty. It has a history of more than 1,300 years. According to legend, a long time ago, there was a fairy sapling tree in the mountain city, which attracted the Phoenix bird, which turned the barren land into a green mountain, and it was named Phoenix, a beautiful legend.

     “Border Town” large-scale forest live performance
    Most people know that the phoenix originated from Mr. Shen Congwen’s “Border Town”. Under his pen, there are Qingshan Xiushui, there are smoke and rain, some people have fireworks, and there is water and tenderness. Although the border town in the book is actually the samovar of Xiangxi, not the phoenix, the world seems to be more willing to equalize the border town and the phoenix. It can be said that Shen Congwen made the Phoenix famous in the world. It can also be said that the Phoenix has nurtured Shen Congwen.

     “Border Town” Performing Arts
    Just like “Impression Lijiang”, when you come to Phoenix, you must look at “Border Town”, the world’s first large-scale forest real-life performance adapted from literary classics, and a close-up multi-sensory experience of this literary classic.
    
     Fenghuang Ancient City
     It’s better to read you thousands of times.
    That night, we went to experience the large-scale forest real drama that was invested 180 million years and elaborated over 12 years. The first time I saw a real-life drama, the sound effects of the lights really shocked me, and the story was beautiful. It is recommended to feel the re-reading of this literary masterpiece in this sense.

    As the saying goes: “The ancient town of Xiangxi looks at the phoenix, and the scenery of the phoenix sees the Lijiang River.” The Lancang River is the mother river of the phoenix. It flows through the city from west to east, and the water is rushing and clear, and the depth is different. The ancient city was built along the banks of the river. Most of the streets and lanes can lead to the riverside and are hydrophilic. During the day, you can raft the Lijiang River (one of the Phoenix’s nine scenic spots) and feel the style of the Xiangxi water town. At night, at the beginning of the Hua Deng, the ancient city is like a colorful night dress, the water and the light blend together, the river is quiet and beautiful, the water is reflected in the water, the river is on the river, the old city is bustling, and the songs on both sides of the river are separated.

    veryMany people say that the phoenix is ​​worthy of the title of “City of Aventure” than Lijiang. I think it is probably because of its beautiful tenderness and literary temperament. After all, in the works of Master Shen Congwen, it is more romantic and literary than any other ancient city. It has attracted a batch of literary men and women to come and report, maybe the corner of the street will meet your Tsui or send it.

    It has long been known that Phoenix has become more and more commercialized, losing its original taste and no longer worth it. After I came, I didn’t think so. Although there are inevitably some small commodities, snacks, silverware, gifts and other homogenizations like other ancient towns, this does not affect the charm of the Phoenix itself. As long as any ancient town is open as a tourist attraction, it will inevitably become commercialized. Otherwise, how can it satisfy the tourists’ accommodation, entertainment and entertainment? This is an inevitable law. But no matter what, its green hills are still there, its green water is still flowing, its stone bridge is still lying on the river, its centuries-old hanging-legged building still stands on the riverside, its bluestone is still at the foot, its historical remains are still preserved. In good condition… It is still one of the most beautiful small towns in China, and that is enough. The key is that you are looking at it with a feeling. If you have a beautiful heart, you will naturally see its beauty, no distracting thoughts, and you can take it in the middle of the city.Quiet. If you love or don’t love, it is there, green hills, green water, flat boats, ancient stone bridges, hanging feet, green earth… This world is not lacking in beauty, but lacks the eyes to discover beauty.
