Travel Tips for Dali
Queso / Cheese
En China no es fácil encontrar queso , pero aquí es una comida típica y tuvimos la suerte de visitar una quesería .
Las vacas y la fabricación del queso es a lo que estamos acostumbrados nosotros , pero la sorpresa empieza cuando vemos que aquí hacen tiras de queso que arrollan en unos palos y lo dejan hasta que se seca .
De sabor está bien
In China it is not easy to find cheese, but here is a typical meal, and we were lucky as we could visit a cheese factory.
Cows and manufacture of the cheese is what we are accustomed us, but the surprise begins when we saw that they make cheese strips and they roll them on sticks to dry
The flavour is good
Hongsheng Temple lies about 500 meters outside the west wall of the old town and features a 16-storey 44m high pagoda that is in the same style as its more famous cousin at the Three Pagodas further down the road. The temple buildings are not in a good state and in fact the whole area was closed off but I sneaked in under the post barrier and took a few photos.
This small courtyard is just off Huguo Lun (Foreigner's Street) and all of a sudden when I was there, a dancing and singing performance began on the stage above ground level with around 10 young girls dressed in traditional minority clothes.
One of the ancient city of Dali's core attractions for foreign travelers is Huguo Lu, also known with locals as Yangren Jie or "Foreigner's Street". This street is where the famous cafes and guesthouses cluster along with souvenir shops and other interesting stores to create a little tourist paradise. Huguo Lu is the major reason that Dali has developed into a backpacker's paradise with cheap beer, Western food, and lodging. Currently, forty thousand tourists visit Dali annually and "Foreigner's Street" has expanded into neighboring streets including Bo'ai Lu and Fuxing Lu.
A river runs through it
This is a lovely idea. Why not have a stream running through the middle of a pedestrian street? Well this particular spot is very popular with people having their photos taken as it is very picturesque. My guesthouse was right outside it.
