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.

  • 在丽江的几日,兜兜转转总能走到这里,这里全是古城中心了吧,热闹,平静,晒太阳,即使你坐一天看着游客,貌似也挺不错的,哈哈。 
  • Went there to watch the little show... It was interesting... Beautiful day! Beautiful place! I recommend a visit!
