I think it’s safe to say that Shaxi Ancient Town is beautiful. From rolling fields of garlic and other fresh produce, to boutique shops, old temples, quaint restaurants, friendly locals and more, there’s loads that you can explore here.
I would recommend staying at least two nights to ensure you are able to experience as much as possible!
You can also hire bicycles from one of the shops in the center of the village so that you can push your exploration even further into the surrounding countryside - reserve at least a full afternoon for that alone! While cycling, we stopped by a beautiful cafe, a bookstore and stunning views all round!

Shaxi is like Lijiang more than ten years ago. Neat stone road, there is a clear stream on both sides of the street, the water is unbelievable.
Rows of shops are also old houses, wooden carved doors and windows, some are snack bars, some sell clothing, some are hardware department stores, there are also one or two bookstores, coffee shops, cute shops, neither People feel too commercial, and they don't make tourists feel too primitive. It maintains a proper balance between old and simple tastes.
Ancient stage is Shaxi is also the landmark building of the temple on the street. The tree on the open space in front of the stage is old, and it has its appearance in the old photos of the last century. At that time, the tree was still relatively Fine, not as leafy as it is now, standing on the ground. The opposite of the
ancient stage is the Xingjiao Temple built in the Ming Yongle period. It and the ancient stage form the center point of Shaxi. In the early years of the information picture, the people here come and go, the horses shuttle constantly, than Qingming Shanghe map will be a bit more lively.
The world is changing, the flow of years is like a white pass, and the bustling market of the bustling city has now vanished, leaving only the bluestone board to tell the silence of the land.
Shaxi's inn, all of them are exquisite and have a mood, the flowers and trees are sparse, and the public space has comfortable and interesting couches. When people see it, they want to go in and have a cup of tea and spend a long time. I hope that I am an innkeeper, guarding a yard of flowers, boil water, cooking tea, watching the clouds.
[Shaxi] is located in the southwest of Jianchuan, Yunnan, China. It is located in the southeast of the Jinsha River, Minjiang River and Nujiang River Three Rivers Nature Reserve. It is located between the Dali Scenic Area and the Lijiang Ancient City. The famous Shibao Mountain is here.
Shaxi Ancient A true ancient town, antique, still retains the most original architectural features. Ancient temples, ancient theaters, ancient shops, horse shops, ancient red sandstone streets, century-old ancient trees, ancient lanes, and ancient village gates.
Shaxi is located in front of Dali and Lijiang, actually closer to Lijiang.
Dali will take 2.5 hours to go to Shaxi, and you can go back and forth on the same day.
But it is recommended to stay for a few days, there will be different gains.
If you use a word to describe Shaxi, then "quietness" can't be overemphasized.
It is the only surviving bazaar on the ancient tea-horse road. It is as quiet as ever, like Lijiang Lijiang ten years ago.
The ancient town of Shaxi is different from Wuzhen. It is popular in the ancient town of Jiangnan. It still retains its original features due to inconvenient transportation. Although it has been a lot of prosperity since four years ago, there are still not many people. Ancient temples, ancient stage, ancient shops, ancient red sandstone streets, centuries-old trees, ancient lanes... all of which fascinate us. Sifang Street is the most characteristic place in Shaxi. Under the blue sky and white clouds, the uneven stone road, occasionally there will be puppies walking. The Shaxi without the tour group is more free. Everyone who comes here seems to be distracted. They played chess on the street, or bought some pine mushrooms on the street, or just wandered aimlessly, and we did the same, taking pictures while walking, stopping and stopping.
Shaxi Ancient Town is a place that is not particularly commercialized. It is located in the middle of Lijiang, Lijiang, and it is also a place of paradise.
Because it is not so commercial, the popularity is not so high, so visitors are not too much. However, because the tourism industry has been vigorously developed in recent years, there are many hotels and hostels built.
This stay at the hotel is one of the best inn in Shaxi.
Inn is a courtyard pattern, the old building has been remodeled, both local characteristics and unique style.
The layout of the hotel is still the local residential mode, facing the lobby. When the business is not busy, the waiters are sitting in the yard and enjoying the sun. If you come here, it is very lively. On the right hand side of the
lobby is a sofa and tea table.
Reading tea here, reading Chinese calligraphy and calligraphy on the wall. The overall decoration of this inn is very Chinese, and the decoration from the exterior to the interior is the keynote.
I am especially fond of this place, probably also love the style here.
There is a river outside the ancient town, there are trees by the river, and there are bridges on the river.
Take the Yujin Bridge, the ancient bridge upstream people come and go, but it does not hinder its ancient beauty. The
brick stone has changed color in the years, the grayish yellow is deep and shallow, and there are still horses passing by here, which is also a unique scenery on the bridge.
The reflection here is very quiet and beautiful.
There is even more like Jiangnan, the hometown of exquisite and quiet.
On the ancient roadside, the camel bell is still ringing.
The horses often walk on the roads of this millennium with people and things.
In the quiet years, only this camel ringtone brings people's thoughts back to the distance.
Shaxi Ancient Town is located in the middle of Lijiang, Lijiang. It is more convenient to drive from the two cities for about 2 hours. However, if it is not a self-driving tour, there will be some toss in the past.
I used to like Dali very much. Now I prefer Shaxi.
Shaxi has a beauty that avoids the world, and the tranquility that sinks in the years is rare in other places.
This ancient town is very close to the modern place where people live, but it is just across the street and the atmosphere of life is completely different. Here, the walls of these loess are the most common here. The texture of the
soil is so exposed, and the buildings that existed before and the buildings that were later restored in the local area formed a strong contrast. The sense of the times is self-evident.
Maybe I just like the place where these loess stones are made, so I love the northwest, so I love it.
Shaxi, an ancient town between Dali and Lijiang. Because it is not well-known, so the number of tourists in the ancient town is far less than the former two. But the quaintness and historical tranquility of Shaxi is not lacking. Still retaining the oldest architectural features. Ancient temples, ancient theaters, ancient shops, horse shops, ancient red sandstone streets, century-old ancient trees, ancient lanes, and ancient village gates.
Staying in Shaxi for a week, the ancient meaning and tranquility here make people reluctant to leave, even if it is only a small meeting, they are reluctant. However, the stone carvings of Shibaoshans caves are always in our minds. Drink a cup of Yunnan espresso coffee, enjoy the warmth of the sun, look at the flowers and plants, and the children who play with the fish and fish to "review", pack up the lazy mood for a long time, drive, go, toward the stone Baoshan's direction, set off!
