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.

  • I'm like standing in one of the Chinese movie's scene when we're here. Traditional Chinese building. Tickets included tour guide. I wander around the buildings while the Tourguide is talking about histories.. it's quite a big compound , saw few different use of buildings. Worth it!
  • Peaceful in the morning, with a lot of traditional Chinese buildings, this is a perfect place for vacation and enjoying a slow life.
  • Gorgeous big Mansion. Tour guide provided for every group of visitors, unfortunately only in Mandarin. Entry is RMB 60 per person. Prepare to spend at least 2 hours to explore this destination.
  • A nice place to visit in Lijiang, wandering around listening lijiang love song is so amazing
