Good hotel accommodation in Shu He Gu Zhen and Lijiang Gu Cheng

by cxs

Would appreciate recommendation of good hotels (in terms of cleanliness and service) in both locations (with attached bathroom). There are numerous hotels around Gu Zhen which are reasonably-priced, western and traditional naxi style. Websites providing hotel info provide little info and without tourists' review

How much do you want to pay? We stayed at a Naxi guesthouse and found it too cold but "interesting" for one stay. The other place was much more comfortable although the breakfast was fairly spartan. However, if we wanted a full breakfast there were plenty of good restaurants 2-5 minutes away. Have a look at my pages for details. We negotiated a better price by staying for 5 days. In other questions dont hesitate to ask. We found Lijiang an interesting place to visit.

Sorry I don't have a name but there are many good, clean guesthouses with private bath and basic service in the Old Town area. This area in also good for things to do.

I'll list my list of "finalists" when we were looking for accommodation in January last year. All are located in the old town area.
Minimal Lounge Boutique Hotel: --> this was where we finally stayed
Ting Xiang Shui Xie: --> this was 2nd choice
Mona's Home:
Ancient Archway Guesthouse:
Old Xie's IYH:
Wonderful Days Guesthouse:
Woodenman Inn:
The one we stayed at is a boutique guesthouse, quite new and the owners are very nice. It's a little further from the main touristy area which's good if you want a bit more peace and quiet.

Travel Tips for Lijiang

Lijiang Hotels

by Tedsocoa

Once you decided to stay some days in Lijiang, I would recommend you to book a hotel in the ancient city of Lijiang and not in the new and modern city. This new one is expending very quickly, and had, in my opinion, no interest; just some big avenues, big buildings without any caracter, which you can find everywhere. In spite of many new and confortable hotels in the new city, I think it's much more interesting to book a hostel or a hotel or a yought hotel in the ancient city, rated at very cheap to more expensive. In the ancient city you feel really the old hart of China beating, even when the whole ancient town is a bit touristic, but anyway charming and original.

Tiger Leaping Gorge Tourist Trail

by John195123

What was once done by only adventurers now sees high-heel clad city-people clambering their awkward ways down and huffing back up. The first hike down to the water, from the main parking lot, is done via stairs, and is more of a tourist trap these days than anything else- the view at the bottom is OK, not spectacular, and don't be surprised if Chinese tour groups stop for a photo or ten, blocking the pathway. This path took us about half an hour, with pictures and waiting behind slower people.

You can see, across the gorge, a statue of the leaping tiger- a tiger supposedly jumped the gorge, according to legend.

There are souvenir stalls on the way up, and some people sell corn and peeled potatos... mmmm.

Five images.

Sit in the Market Square

by AntaeusCass

When the sun is shining, there is nothing nicer than sitting in the Lijiang Market Square at lunchtime watching the local women, and some men, dancing. Whether the accompaniment is a flute or a soundblaster, the women, dressed in their local costumes dance for their pleasure and not for money.

if you get tired of watching the dancing, you can always dress as a herdsman and have your photograph taken sitting on a horse

Mu's Mansion - Mini "Forbidden City" in Lijiang

by alluringworld

It is interesting to see in Lijiang, a scaled down version of "Forbidden City." Some parts of it have previously been destroyed due to the wars during the Qing Dynasty and Cultural Revolution. Today, what you can see will be a combination of old and reconstructed structures. Nonetheless, it's worth a visit.

Entrance Fee - RMB35 per person

Shuhe Waterways

by John195123

Much like Lijiang, Shuhe has waterways that run through town. As in Lijiang, there are three pools at the source, the first for drinking, the second for washing food and the third for washing clothes.
