Landmark Tourist Spot
Find local products and reminders of home down Dali Foreigner Street, a commercial strip geared towards foreign tourists. Originally known as Huguo Road, the street earned its nickname for the abundance of foreign visitors here at all times, and the services and businesses that have sprung up to meet their tastes and needs. Dotted with tea houses and market stalls selling crafts, clothes, and trinkets with distinctly Bai-style designs, the street offers an easy, if not entirely authentic, route into the local culture. An array of Western-style restaurants offer a few home comforts for travelers who've been on the road for a while.

Where to stay in Dali

A popular tourist destination for budget travelers, Dali offers a wide choice of places to stay. Hotels cluster on the southern and southeastern lakeshore, with luxurious five-star establishments closer to the Three Pagoda area. As an attractive spot for young travelers, Dali offers a range of cheap hostels and scores of guesthouses across the city. Most budget establishments sit just outside the west gate of the old town, or closer to the east gate. However, popular places fill up quickly during the summer period, so make sure you reserve your room in advance.
