Lijiang holidays

The whole of Lijiang old town has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site and it is a charming collection of narrow traffic free streets, elaborate sloping-roofed houses, quiet courtyards, winding cobbled streets fringed with tea houses and cafes by the side of small canals with fast running melt water from the peaks. The central square is often filled with local ladies and men in traditional blue and white costumes of the Naxi minority who gather in the afternoon sun to sing enchanting folk songs. Sit at a café by a willow tree with some Dali beer or hot Yunnan coffee and a Naxi sandwich and watch the world go by.
