We loved the old town, even though it is touristy, it was a lovely place to relax and wander around. Plenty of restaurants and things to see. Comfortable shoes is a must. One of our favourite places..... more »
This was a lovely place to walk around and explore. Lots of little streets, very photogenic and lots of opportunities to photograph. more »
Full of character, always a very lovely place, best seen when it's beautiful and serene in the mornings. In the evening it's very lively and noisy with magical mix of traditional music and tasty street food. The houses are lite up at night showing off a mixture of the traditional old build houses and new houses in old style.
Lijiang is more than 800 years an ancient city .. Most foreign tourists are more Asian than from Europe .. Lijiang is beautiful in traditional Chinese architecture. Thus, Lijiang was one of the most beautiful world heritage cities in China .. The city of Lijiang is located on the sloping hills of the mountains, making it beautiful, especially when the lights are illuminated at the night .. once in your life you must visit here, it is worth it.
