Baisha Ancient Town, Yulong County
(4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Yulong County vacation route planner to arrange your visit to Baisha Ancient Town and other attractions in Yulong County.
