#9 of 28 in Sightseeing in Lijiang
Landmark Tourist Spot
Feel the energy of Sifang Streets Square, a bustling bazaar and the heart of the old town. Walk the streets paved with colorful stones and admire the Ming and Qing dynasty architecture. From the square, four main streets spread like a web, with narrow water canals pouring down each. Dip your feet in the cold clean water while sipping a beer from one of the many bars and pubs in the area. Shop for local specialties, fresh vegetables, and fruit, then taste the soothing flavors of the famous "pu-erh" tea as you meander through the market. Street vendors here sell appetizing grilled food. You won’t have trouble finding them; just follow the savory smells. Plan your visit to Sifang Streets Square and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Lijiang family vacation planner.

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.
