Stilt Houses in Phoenix Ancient Town
Phoenix Ancient Town, also known as Fenghuang Ancient Town, is an exceptionally well-preserved ancient town in the west area of Hunan Province that harbors unique ethnic languages, customs, and arts, as well as many distinctive architectural remains in Ming and Qing styles. The mountainous local area with its many rivers and abundant trees gave birth to the distinctive and elegant stilt house. The stilt house, a type of traditional accommodation built on stilts of different heights, is usually built beside a river or on steep mountain areas. At nightfall, when the lights were on, I captured this stunning view of the stilt houses.

فينيكس القديمة، المعروفة أيضاً باسم مدينة فنغوانغ القديمة، هي مدينة قديمة تمت المحافظة عليها جيداً في المنطقة الغربية من مقاطعة هونان ويتكلّم سكّانها لغات فريدة ويمارسون عادات وفنون عرقية مميزة، كما تحتضن مجموعة كبيرة من الآثار المعمارية الرائعة من عهدَي مينغ وتشينغ. جذبت المنطقة الجبلية المحلية بأنهارها الكثيرة ووفرة الأشجار فيها السكان إلى بناء منازل مقامة على ركائز خشبية متينة، وهي أماكن إقامة تقليدية يتم تشييدها بارتفاعات مختلفة، وعادة ما يتم بناؤها بجانب نهر أو في مناطق جبلية شديدة الانحدار. عند حلول الظلام، وبعد أن أنار السكان بيوتهم، التقطت صورة لهذا المنظر الخلاب.
