4.0
#2 of 11 in Historic Sites in Yulong County
Visit the cradle of the ancient Mu clan, Baisha Ancient Town. The family was known for its architectural brilliance and the ancient city stands as a testament to that. See buildings dating back to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) that are still in use to this day, and admire the murals that decorate the town and give it a feeling of authenticity. As you wander the area, you can escape the rush of urban life for the day and experience the lifestyle of the Naxi population. Take a break at the local restaurants or cafes for a traditional local meal, or go shopping for handmade items at the local workshops.
