Fenghuang Ancient Town is quite small; it is within walking distance to almost every corner. However, taxis (pricing starts from CNY3.5 in low season, from CNY5 in high season) and battery trucks (cost only CNY1/p) are also available in the town. To have a better view of Diaojiaolou, dwellings of local Miao people, to take a boat on Tuojiang River is a good choice. As for attractions outside the ancient town, about CNY150 can charter a minibus for one day (with 8 working hours).
