  • A must-see when you visit Old Town. A very large residence with much of its early furnishings, beautiful decoration and clear explanations. Whether the Mu's were "headmen" or "kings" remains to be see...  more »
  • "The North has the Palace Museum, the south has the wooden mansion". Across the stream of water, a small bridge, suddenly saw a wooden archway in the roof of the civil residents between the roofs. Stepping into the red door of the wooden house, the eyes suddenly enlightened, a wide open on the ground towering a magnificent palace, white marble pedestal carved beautifully, the magnificent momentum, so that people are in the palace. If you say in Lijiang ancient city we see is Lijiang secular life side, then in the Wood mansion, we will look at a glorious moment in the southwest of the big toast family fall. Mu Mansion is a splendid building art garden, it fully reflects the Ming Dynasty Central Plains architectural style temperament, while retaining the Tang and Song Dynasty Central Plains Building simple and rugged Luching, and its seat west facing east, the House Jade Ditch vertical and horizontal, living water long flow layout, then see Naxi traditional culture spirit. Tickets are not expensive, on-site buy or online buy can, is worth a go!

  • 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.

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.
