Square Street (Sifangjie), Lijiang
(3.2/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
With four main streets radiating from an open-air market core of old Lijiang, Square Street (Sifangjie) served as an important hub on the ancient Tea Horse Road. Skillfully laid-out canals with clean water run through this area paved with square gray stones with many side alleys packed with shops and bars. Enjoy a cup of tea and watch locals dip their feet (or beer) in the cold canal water. Traditional brick and wood houses and structures with carved gates and painted windows preserve the traditional look of the street. Pick up some famous bronze pieces or knitted shawls for souvenirs. Only bicycles and carts are allowed inside. Using our online itinerary creator, Lijiang attractions like Square Street (Sifangjie) can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 古城的中心點,是一個廣場,廣場個人覺得蠻有特色的,服務中心也都在此,在這裡可以看到通往古城大大小小的路 
  • While much of the traditional crafts have made way for modern Chinese fare, one can still spend several days here checking out the galleries and medical halls. 
  • Many tourists. In China, the tourists is the Chinese themselves. But still a place worth visiting. Right in the heart of the old town, so that it itself you will find, if you roam.
