Where to stay

Shilin County's urban area to the west of the World Heritage Site offers a selection of places to stay. Some high-rise, modern hotels have cropped up in recent years, with plenty of rooms and standard facilities; meanwhile, more established guesthouses and hostels provide particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers. Most visitors make a day trip to Shilin County from the city of Kunming, located under two hours' drive to the west. There, you have a wide choice of accommodations across the city.
