  • Definitely one of the nicest things to do in Lijiang. We drove along the road from the market to the South. The location of the House is very beautiful because the entrance is at the bottom, surrounded by streams of water, and then climb up the slopes of the Hill, in the Center with the most important structures on the sides with increasingly important concessions to the garden.

The view from the top of the roofs of the mansion is beautiful and even more so that of rooftops throughout the city.
