  • Lijiang hotels, hotel staff told the Baisha Baisha is told from trivial, and if you talked, Baisha is no better of the bunch, but good to go is. At the castle entrance is near the big wheel in the old town of Lijiang bus stop, I took the No. 6 bus. I waited more than 20 minutes the bus was the sixth to come. No timetable is often unknown. Down at the bus stop called the people's Government of white sand, is near the parking lot of the mural. Walking in the opposite direction and the direction of the bus, turn right and head to the entrance of the old town. Café in the village in fashionable clothes shop (very high) and English written menu, and European and American tourists is a popular place and I realized. Indeed, in Lijiang, saw little to Western tourists, but came in Baisha group European and American tourists. Be able to take pictures of the snow fields and people dressed in ethnic costumes, Lijiang differs from delights of the village.

  • The nearby village of Lijiang, is worth a visit. There are still streets without tourists, and in the countryside, while others have lined up stalls.
