  • Paid 25 RMB per person with student cards, weren't asked for passports or anything . Nice walk around the park in the morning.  more »
  • We had to pay an extra fee of 50 yuan pp which we didnt think was really worth it. So we went down a little bit, and followed the signs "Sun in / above the cloud" to try to get a free view on the town...  more »
  • rmb50 to get there but it of good to cut the crowd of old town. The view over the rooftops actually is the best you can find, and the Park is RESTful. The ascent is not so long is hard as what is described in some reviews.

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.
