  • I suggest you to visit this town that in my opinion is better than Lijiang because has something more traditional and particular, less crowded and you can rejoice the culture and history of the town. ...  more »
  • The shoes - old town is pretty close of Lijiang is also very nice-ähnlich like Lijiang but yet not so tourist focused, therefore worth visiting

  • Because it is so far away from the old town of Lijiang is relatively quiet. Still tastefully atmosphere to leave old corner, had equipped and clean, so undeniably shoppingtown feeling that around here for a while, it's from the entrance.

  • 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.
