Jim's Tibetan Hotel, 4 Seasons Hotel in Dali

by adventuresome

Hi,

We're visiting Dali in mid-November and considering staying at

a. Jim's Tibetan Hotel. This seems to be a different hotel from Jim's Guesthose and Peace Cafe. http://www.china-travel.nl/english/guesthouse.htm

b. Old Dali Inn No. 5 (4 Seasons Hotel). http://treehouse.ofb.net/guide/viewplace?placeid=363&lang=en

We're wondering if anyone has stayed at these hotels recently and can give us some feedback on these hotels pls?

Thank you.

I have no ideal about the Guesthouse in Dali, but i am well known about the Hostels & guesthouse in Lijiang. If you need help, please feel free to tell me.

The best one HOtel in Dali, i think it is the Landscape HOtel, it has 3-star, 4-star Rooms. Lovely courtyard with reasonable price.

So can you recommend which place to stay at Lijiang? Must be clean & convenient. Don't need a fancy hotel but the price must be reasonable.

have not stayed at either place yet but planning to go there, so this is based on what I've read so far

4 seasons is opened by a Taiwanese and has good reviews, it's been around for a while, in old town

Jim's Tibetan Hotel is new, outside of the citywalls/old town but brand new, good reviews but no heat in the building

I'd recommend Red Lantern Inn for Lijiang & Tibetan Lodge for Dali.

Hi,
we were in Dali in April this year and stayed in Jim's Tibetan Hotel. It's not the same like the Hostel, but they both belongs to Jim - a very nice guy. The Hostel is in the old town and is much simpler, but very nice. The hotel is arround 400 meters away, just behind the old city wall. Is also very nice but of course more expensive. Jim build the hotel last year, I think. There is a restaurant on both places, where you can get great food. So you should make the decision depending on your budget :-) But both are nice places!
Cheers, Agni

Hi I just came back from Jim's Tibetan Hotel & loved it, I actually did not check out Jim's guesthouse but it should be cheaper vs the hotel (spacious room with 3 beds for Y250)

Travel Tips for Dali

Don't bother

by johnmperry

I'm just back from a short trip round Yunnan which included Dali Old City. Old? Nothing I saw inside the walls pre-dated about 1950, apart from some relics in the museum (5Y I think, worth it).

The bus to the three pagodas costs .5 Y (5 jiao); entrance to the three pagodas complex was 52Y. The new temple behind, Ching Sheng, is completely artificial.

The bus (no. 4) to Dali New City (Xia Guan) costs 1Y.

Dali Old City, particularly "Foreigners Street" (Huguo Lu) is like West Street Yangshuo writ large. Don't bother. For "western breakfast" I ordered muesli with fruit in yoghurt, and a cheese omelette. It all came on the same plate!

Tintes atados / Dyes tied

by elpariente

Estos son "batiks" , típicos de la cultura Bai, que utilizan un tinte llamado "banlagen" y con él pintan animales y flores en el tejido que luego atan con nudos en las zonas que no quieren que que se coloreen
Primero preparan las telas con los diseños que quieren hacer , luego hacen los nudos , tiñen las telas en grandes calderas y después las secan al sol en sus patios que tienen un gran colorido

These are "batiks," typical of the Bai culture , that use a dye called "banlagen" and they paint flowers and animals in the fabric that is tied with knots in the areas that they do not want to be painted
First , they prepare fabrics with designs they want to do, then they do the knots, stained fabrics in large boilers and then they are dried in the sun , in their yards which look very colorful

Architecture Style

by elva199

This is the special architercture from Dali. Many local people like to paint their house. The beautiful eaves seem have special lucky meaning.

Just the harmonious colors show the talent of local people.

Three Pagodas (San Ta)

by raraavis

Can you believe these pagodas were built in the 9th Century and still standing after earthquakes and other natural disasters? The middle pagoda has been renovated and standing tall. The two smaller side pagodas are slightly leaning and obviously seen their share of good and bad times. They were also built during a later time. Going inside or climbing the pagodas are not allowed.

Make sure you check out the Reflection Pond near the pagodas. The reflections of all pagodas are clear in this pond. It does get crowded with big tour groups stopping and taking pictures. When they leave, the place becomes very tranquile.

The Three Pagosas are situated in the foothill of Cang Shan, before you reach Chongshen Monastery. Entrance ticket is for both pagodas and the monstery.

The pagodas take about an hour to sightsee.

Er hai (Ear Lake)

by raraavis

Dali is famous for Cang Shan and Er Hai.

Er Hai is the 11th largest fresh water lake in China. You can take motorized boat tours on the lake. We didn't take one cause a lake is a lake. This one is not particular breathtaking but still worth a look. Better yet, admire it from afar to get the birds eye view -- on your way down from Zhonghe Temple cable car. (See next tip)

To get to Er Hai, you need to go to Cai Cun (Cai Village) Ma Tou (Wharf). It's about 1-2 km outside of Dali Old City. We took a horse drawn carriage from Three Pagodas, it took about 30 minutes.
