Where to stay in Yulong County

Visitors to Yulong County tend to stay in the city of Lijiang. Located at the foot of the mountain, the giant that contains many of the natural attractions of the county, the city has a diverse and plentiful selection of places to stay. In the older parts of town, choose from characterful guesthouses, newly built boutique-style hotels, and larger resorts on the outskirts. Head to the north in the ancient residential district of Shuhe for very traditional options with dramatic mountain views.

  • This small town has the feeling of authenticity. Many wear their traditional clothing - but not for tourists. Visit the local market. Stop into small craft shops. The embroidery center is renowned.  more »
