Square Street (Sifangjie), Lijiang

Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Nice Square during day time, horrible at nighttime. Load music and a lot of colorfull lights. Sad to see what they have done to this place. 
  • 這是麗江大研古城的中心地帶,在麗江的古城旅行,你會聽到不同的「四方街」,例如束河古鎮也有一條四方街。而大研這一條,則是中心中的中心,東南西北都要經過這裏,不少人集合的地方要麼就在這,要麼就在大水車那。因此,這裏永遠很多人,尤其是晚上,但同時熱鬧程度遠遠引人入勝 
  • 此次的造訪,恰逢灰暗的天氣,人滿為患的四方街,簡直寸步難行。我雖然想更進一步的了解當地的民俗風情,但有礙於行程的安排,我們一行人只得跟著導遊一路走出四方街,趕緊到下一個目的地。路途上已經置行難礙了,一路上又是充滿煙味,讓我更想加快腳步離開。不過當我看到路邊販賣的明信片時,便被那古城的魅力吸引。希望未來還有機會一探究竟,也希望下次的造訪能給我一個乾淨新鮮的環境,會讓我更想花時間駐足的!
