Listed as a World Heritage Site, Lijiang Old Town was a chaotic and bustling transit and transfer point on both the famous Silk Road and the Tea Horse Road. The ancient city never had city walls. Lying between the river and the mountains, the landscape is magnificent. Inside the old town, the roads are paved with slick cobblestones. The quaint buildings, small arched bridges and beautiful plateau scenery have attracted the interest of countless visitors. The relaxed pace of life and unique Nakhi culture are also part of the Lijiang's charm. The area surrounding the old town also has many beautiful natural landscapes such as the magnificent Yulongxue (Jade Dragon Snow) Mountain and the idyllic Lashihai Lake. If you like ancient towns, Shuhe or Baisha Old Towns are sure to impress with their tranquil breath of life.
D30***48Took a didi from Lijiang to the cable car base. Its low season so there were still tickets available to buy, there are lots of queues to get on the bus and on the cable car but we are used to that travelling in China. The mountain is beautiful and it was amazing to get to the top and see the glacier up close. We didn't take any oxygen with us, just climbed the stairs slowly and rested often. The blue moon lakes were very pretty too.
D29***75Ligue lake is a beautiful scenic spot in the Yunnan-Sichuan border. We arrived there from Kunming by bus, and although the trip is quite long (5-6 hours), the views along the way are stunning, and Lugu lake is totally worth the detour. There are several villages along the lake where one can stay, the ambiance is quite calm, and there are nice roads to walk around.
_We***52The Qianguqing package, with a special car for pick-up, the master service is very good and very enthusiastic. The ticket contains a Hanfu experience for each person, the parents like it, there are a lot of clothes to choose from, the photo is beautiful, really cost-effective. The Qianguqing is also shocking and worth recommending.
路易斯崔People who have been to Lijiang will not be strange to Muwangfu, if choose to live in the inn near Mufu, the feeling is quite different. Backed by Lion Mountain, adjacent to the Muwangfu, the Zhiyun Residence Inn, almost full of the ancient city, can see every day from morning to night sunbathing the ancient city, and the rooms are quaint ethnic elements let you rest in another atmosphere, leisurely.
顺时针1986Lashihai is a wetland nature reserve in Lijiang, Yunnan. It is located in the middle of Yulong County, Lijiang City, about 10 kilometers away from the ancient city of Lijiang. Now it has become a plateau lake that maintains a certain water level. The mirror-like surface of the lake reflects the Yulong Snow Mountain. It has the unique atmosphere of plateau wetlands. It is recommended to visit with ample time. One day is enough to visit, mainly horse riding and walking along the plank road to feel the nature Scenery, you can go back and forth on the same day. Lashi Haijing District is better than it is close to the urban area of Lijiang, but the area that can be visited is not too large. The entire tour route is circular, mainly including the Wetland Museum, the Bird Watching Corridor, the Dongba Festival Museum, the Zodiac Avenue, Swan Lake, glass plank road, moon bay promenade, sea view wooden plank road and other attractions, the price of 30 yuan per person is not too expensive. For ecological protection, boating is now not allowed. Walking on the wooden plank road of the bird-watching promenade, there are wetland scenery on both sides, and some waterfowls swim around on the water from time to time, many of which are protected by the state. Walking into Lashihai, you are full of comfort and comfort. The calm and clear lake is like a large mirror, reflecting the blue sky and white clouds, and the breeze blows on the lake surface with circles. There are usually minivans to go to the ancient city of Lijiang, to Lashi Hainan or Haibei. Haibei is close to the island in the lake, while Hainan is the Lashihai resort. You must bargain a good price when you charter a car, usually around 100-200 yuan. The driver earns horseback riding fees. There are dozens of horse farms in Lashiha, and the price of play is not fixed. In fact, the route you choose is the same. No matter how much money you spend, you follow the general route. Don’t imagine riding a horse on the grassland. Basically, you’ll be walking the whole journey. Riding in the field is usually only around the lake. The price is about tens of yuan. Riding around the lake costs more than 100 yuan. Bargaining is necessary. Time is enough.

Stargazing in Lijiang! #holidayvacation
Baisha is a little town 20 min away from Lijiang old town. It is much less touristic, with a few cafes, local food places and some hotels. It is the perfect spot to enjoy the old town style without crowd. And if you are up to it you can do several hikes!
Pullman is the hotel brand of Accor. As far as the country is concerned, there are only a few such resort hotels. Lijiang is regarded as the best Pullman in China.
Overview from the air, the entire hotel covers an enormous area and is magnificent. The most prominent building in the center of the lake is the Arc de Triomphe. This design was inspired by the Kogon Square in Sifang Street, the ancient city of Lijiang.
Deliberately dressed in an ancient style, whether standing under the flower tree or walking in the yard, it is very close to the surrounding scenery. The hotel's overall design is inspired by the local Naxi architecture, blending modern Chinese-style decorative elements with a low-key interior.
This time in Lijiang, I stayed at the Pullman Lijiang Resort in Lijiang. There is no magnificent grandeur and gaudy, from the whole to the details all reveal the mysterious relationship between low-key and luxury, this is the design philosophy of Lijiang Pullman. The combination of humanity and nature, such as a noble man of the Taoist celestial wind, retreats at the entrance to the ancient town of Shuhe.
After arriving at the hotel check in, the staff drove me to the room with a battery car, along the way and the lush, pomegranate, walnut, apple tree treetops have been hung on the small barley fruit, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain The peaks of the mountains are hidden behind the clouds. The one-bedroom villa in
has an area of 288m2, with a courtyard in front of and behind the room, and the garden view is almost 360 degrees. The entrance to the room is the highlight of the design. The living room, bathroom and bedroom all use floor-to-ceiling windows in a large area to provide a panoramic view of the garden. Even when going to the toilet, the front is also a bamboo forest landscape swaying in the wind, and the holiday atmosphere pervades every corner.
Open the door and see a pot of warm red bean porridge, welcome card and a bottle of bougainvillea on the coffee table. The bedroom's aroma humidifier has been opened. It is worth mentioning that there is floor heating in the house, and tourists coming in winter will not be afraid of cold. Very caring.
Couldn’t travel outside of China on account of the pandemic, so this became my #staycation. The scenery on the road from Shangri-La to Lijiang in Yunnan Province was really incredible. Lots of blue skies and snow-capped mountains.

Been to Lijiang old town during peak season, it was a nightmare. Such a big difference to visit in low season - nice old alley, small river, cosy tea house and many more that we can finally feel the charm of the place. strongly recommend to visit in low season.
The Old Town in #lijiang is a beautiful place. Very much recommend visiting outside the peak tourist times. We went around the end of November and still have pleasant temperatures and lots of sunshine. In the busy months, the city can be overwhelmed with visitors. Better to go when it’s slow!
Trip has booked Baisha Slow Stay B&B, Lijiang Slow Stay and has flowers to listen to snow | ins windy hotel, super suitable for taking pictures, you can see snow mountains when the weather is good. The design of the yard is very unique, with a lot of plants, pomegranates hanging on the trees, succulent walls, cactus, and my favorite hydrangea. In the afternoon, you can drink tea in the yard, and unconsciously leave the leaves on your head. When it rains, you can hide under the roof and listen to the rain. It is really enjoyable. The girl who loves to take pictures should come here more, and the white balcony on the third floor is too suitable for taking pictures.
