Sifang Streets Square, Lijiang

3.6
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.

  • Arrive South big Street from the North Gate of the old town of Lijiang. Square was just too much to vulgarize, wherever that is. Lijiang doesn't say or feel of femininity, and never otherwise.

  • It is a square emerges from a large mill town proceed South Boulevard. There are lots of tourists. It is recommended because I liked the view from the lion mountain to the Southwest, heading South-West. So if you want to see the lives of local people in from the prefectural tree on the South side of the Castle and the market visit.

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.
