    Has three ancient city in Yunnan, Lijiang, Dali, there is also a build. Jianshui County, the ancient name of "head", formerly called "Lin an", now called "build". On the ground, people used to call it "Linan city." Jianshui is unlikely, but by virtue of its old rustic elements with rich culture, ushered in the CCTV's taste on the tongue and on the 12 front, and where is the father of the 4 program shooting. Jianshui County in Yunnan province has an important place in history. Jianshui human height, was built in the Yuan dynasty Temple, Ming dynasty built the Fu Xue Linan, Wanli Jianshui established State Confucianism. The Qing dynasty has established Chong Zheng, Huan Wen, chongwen, Qujiang four row homes, people in the territory. Jianshui "half" list, known as Linan House in Yunnan province-wide examinations in the list accounted for most of the half, called the Crown of the Yunnan, and "literature of the State", "the southern Confucian" reputation, are very rare in the country. A long history and a brilliant culture in the ancient city of Jianshui left many buildings full of rich cultural heritage, ancient temples, the temple and the shrine pavilions is through a lot, monuments, mottled, were also being called the "Museum of ancient architecture" and "House Museum". See friends of the 12 front, should remember this beautiful in hidden in the mountains of Southern small town. Starting from Kunming, more than 200 kilometers to the South, after a 3.5-hour drive to Jianshui. Jianshui is left over from the era of the Qing dynasty ancient city. This has a deep background in the late Qing dynasty ancient city has now become the preferred destination for travellers to Honghe. Jianshui is small, half scale is based on the original old city expansion, bus to run a few minutes would slow, rambling stone paved streets through, you just can look style in the ancient city of Jianshui. Disremembered and blowing in the night, mixed with some barbecue the unique taste of Jianshui. If you are a foodie, then build you must come. Looking across the Honghe Hani and Yi autonomous, Jianshui-centric, Qujiang duck in the North, the West Shiping tofu, East of Yunnan rice noodle, chicken feet in gejiu, Yuanyang small cattle dry in the South, green chunhani chicken dipped in water, take out all have dominated the southwestern China. Unique ancient city of Jianshui, hauntingly food is endless, soy milk and glutinous rice porridge, bird's nest pastry Triassic, lion cake, milk, vegetables, water, blisters, steam pot chicken, flour PEAR dumpling, grass shoots, rice carried the Lotus root ... ... The so-called "Jianshui 18 eating" is definitely not langdexuming. Unfortunately, this trip in Jianshui for a limited time, failed to taste the little hidden in the city's local cuisine, but also for the next made an excuse to build.
