Travel Tips for Dali

Arrival Dali at Night

by vigi

Arriving Xia-Kuan at night (I think it's around 7/8pm). Without reading my LP in advance, the only thing I knew was that I want to stay in Dali old town, where's all the backpackers' hostels located. I asked around, and the last shuttle bus was gone, so, I took a taxi there. It took me about 30 mins, forgot how much I paid, but not that expensive as I remembered.

2 Arroz / Rice

by elpariente

El arroz se lleva a los pueblos en gavillas , donde se seca en las carreteras, calles o patios y más tarde se desgrana con máquinas o algunas veces, los ponen en la carretera con el fin de aprovechar el tráfico
Los granos de arroz se secan al sol y se almacenan
The rice is taken to the villages , where they dry it on the roads , streets or yards and later on they remove the grains with machines or some times they put them in the road in order to have advantage of the cars traffic
The rice grains are dried in the sun and stored

Delicious western and local cuisine

by hooiluangoh about Jack's Pizzeria (not too sure of the name)

This restaurant has a big stone oven downstairs which they cook the pizzas.

Go upstairs and you will find a very cosy environment to relax and have a delicious meal.

We had a tuna pizza which was absolutely delicious. The price was about RMB15 to RMB 20.

They also serve local cuisine: try to preserved papaya stir-fried with chicken, and the egg-plant stir-fried with fish sauce. They are a little sourish and very local Bai in nature. Preserved papaya stir-fried with chicken.

Fuxing Lu

by Willettsworld

Fuxing Lu is the main street that runs north-south through the walled part of the town. It is lined mostly with shops and small snack restaurants and features a small stream with willow trees. The street is mostly pedestrianised but you still have to watch out where you're walking.

Zhonghe Temple (Zhong He Ci)

by raraavis

This is temple I think of when I think of monks living in solitude, hidden somewhere in the mountains.

Zhonghe Temple is located in Cang Shan. You can either hike up or take a cable car. There are a lot of tombs along the way. Occasionally, you'll military personnel cause there's some kind of military outpost in the area. Hiking takes about an hour, slightly longer than cable car. It's a really slow moving cable car. Check out the view on your way down: Chongshen Monastery, Three Pagodas, Old City, and Er Hai. They are all before your eyes.

The temple itself is not much to look at. It looks Daoist to me with the Yin/Yang symbol painted on the ceiling when you first walk in. I see evidence of people living there but I don't see any monks. It's really a small area. Takes about 10 minutes to walk around.

As usual, souvenir stands and a restaurant are here. There is no such thing as a missed business opportunity.
