Last week's blog post was an introduction to Fenghuang, a small village in Hunan province in south central China. This week, I want to show some of the natural beauty of the Fenghuang area, the waterfalls of Furong. Furong means hibiscus and the 2000 year old town was renamed as such because a famous Chinese movie called "Hibiscus Town" was filmed there. The above videos highlight the Furong waterfall. The height of the waterfall is about 60 meters; it's about 40 meters wide. Travelers may walk under and behind the waterfall, as seen in the video on the right. The sound of the rushing water is very peaceful and can be heard from at least a mile away. There were very few foreign tourists in Furong, at least that was the case in 2016.
Join me on a Chow Fun tour and witness some of China's natural beauty!
I have traveled all over the world, including adventures in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Israel, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, England, Denmark, Russia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Dominican Republic, Canada and Mexico. My greatest love is introducing Americans to the sites, traditions and people of China. My hope is to give travelers a new lens through which to see the world.
