"All I wanted was to eat the chicken that is smarter than other chickens and to absorb its power."
"Working on Game of Thrones is amazing. There’s like five units all going on at the same time, and somehow they manage to put it all together at the end and it looks beautiful (…) The Daenerys section of Game of Thones, last year we shot in Morocco, and this year we’re shooting in Croatia. We get like the good end of the stick. Everybody else is in Ireland, or Iceland and all these cold places. And we get the beach." — Jacob Anderson for Hunger TV [x]
The Ancient Town of Fenghuang, China
The town of Fenghuang is located in the Hunan province in China along the banks of the Tuo Jiang River. The town is exceptionally well-preserved and relatively untouched by modern urbanization.
The legacy of the Ming And Qing dynasties are preserved within the town, spanning 300 years of ancient heritage. In the ancient town zone, preservation of over 200 residential buildings, 30 streets, and hundreds of other ancient features and landmarks of the town has continued for hundreds of years.
Because of its unique geographical location, Fenghuang never suffered from the destruction of any natural disaster or suffered invasion from any wars. Even during the war of resistance against Japanese invasion, the isolated town of Fenghuang did not suffer occupation. In 1949, Fenghuang was peacefully liberated.
In the following 50 years, Fenghuang was spared any large-scale construction that occurred in nearby districts. As the people of Fenghuang cherish their valuable heritage, the local government has conducted strict control over all construction, continuing the preservation and the authenticity of the ancient town.
