    Lijiang old town stroll good connected with the Park. When it rains the floor a little slippery, you must be careful. There are several buildings around the Lake. Lijiang old town if you can free entry tickets.

    Must-see, this park is well worth a visit if only to bask in the sights of a postcard that gives you. I have to pay input, if you visit in the morning you will see how people practice Tai Chi, yoga.. .is accessible 10-minute walk from the old town.

Where to stay in Lijiang

Though built on a small scale, Lijiang has long been a popular destination for Chinese tourists, and what was already a good choice of accommodations has grown with increased international interest. Expect to pay a premium to stay in the old town area, with hotels overlooking the main canals particularly popular. Head out of the old town and you'll find a good range of more cost-effective, smaller guesthouses, hostels, and hotels, either in the suburban residential areas, or on the main roads leading out into the hillier areas of the region.
