  • 人沒有麗江古城那麼多,整體商業氣息也比較濃,但是多了一點古韻和寧靜。喜歡這裡的小橋流水,從麗江古鎮過來,做巴士或者打車都可以到,距離也不遠,交通非常方便。這裡值得一遊。 
  • A distance away from the city of Lijiang. Picturesque as Shuhe has both old and new architectures. Again, I was there during maintenance period, so be careful when wandering around this ancient city. ...  more »
  • We stayed in Shuhe as we were advised it was more relaxing than staying in Lijiang and we were not disappointed. It really is a lovely place to just wander around.

  • The most comfortable place on earth I have even been to. You can feel sunshine massage you every morning. I stayed at K2 international youth hostel for 3 weeks. Small tips for you, disconnect yourself with the rest of world and just enjoy your every moment there. I am confident you will not regret.
