Our tour guide arranged for us to take our breakfast at this beautiful town – Furong Town (芙蓉镇)  also known as Hibiscus Town. In the town  the pavement laid with black flagstones and ancient houses. The  famous movie Furong Town directed by Xiejin is shot here. In Furong Town the local specialty is rice tofu and the genuine shop is in the vicinity of toril. We have our breakfast of the rice tofu and it was delicious. The shop is the rice tofu shop in the movie. The scenery in the town has unique bearing. The stilted houses are set up against the slope.

The Wangcun waterfall is about 60 meters high and 70 meters wide. Walking behind the hanging screen of the waterfall is like placing oneself in a crystal palace. We have the local tour guide from this beautiful ancient Furong town to guide us and also letting us know the history of this ancient town. Enjoying ourselves walking behind the waterfall and visited the ancient town where we can buy the local specialty and dried sea foods. There is a  tea room where we can sit and enjoy the beautiful view of the waterfall. The tour take about 1 to 2 hours and we are free to walk around the town.

The local guide only speak in chinese so it will be quite boring for those who don’t understand the language to understand the history of this town. This ancient town worth a visit as I would love to stay longer at the waterfall but unfortunately only the locals can go down to the waterfall or near but not for tourists.
