3.0
#5 of 15 in Historic Sites in Lijiang
With a total of 53 pieces of frescoes painted from 1385 to 1619, Lijiang Mural in Baisha Village gives you a rare opportunity to see a surviving early Ming-period painting. With most of the frescoes housed in the temple complex of Dabaoji Palace, you can enjoy an artful inclusion of Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism on gorgeous murals. The murals are not particularly well-lit or restored, so you may want to hire a guide for further explanations. Offering a quiet retreat from busy Lijiang, Baisha township offers the chance to enjoy scenic views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and take a stroll along traditional streets.

    From the old town of Lijiang is not tacky. This is good to see the old houses and streets in May. However, shop and cafeteria is a similar situation. You do not need to make a local brewery. Drink if you have a situation that health care cannot be.

    This small town is perhaps the most authentic in the area, paintings which houses (700 years old) are spectacular, but the best is strolling through the streets and transport you back in time. It is a good place to test jack meat and a couple of sites to be eaten at good price (20 Yuan)

    Enjoy the old town Lijiang River from the old town, rustic. But overall the tourist destination it has become is a little disappointment.

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.
