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.

  • People come to rest photos or to another because the floor is filled with planks and stones were dredged. It seems to be done in the next few months. Unfortunately, we went on this range.

  • 四方街位于丽江古城的核心地带,6条五彩花石街依山随势,辐射开去,街巷相连,四通八达。中心处为一广场,时常会有纳西族的舞蹈表演,伴随着纳西古乐,男女老少齐上阵,别有一番风味。 
  • However, Castle is a square; It happens here is broad. The banks, offices and food stalls. Also the cheapest goods assortment souvenir shop's rich, also are lined and there is fun.
