About Lijiang: 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.
