Quietly nestled in Southwest China’s Yunnan Province, Lijiang is a small city inhabited mainly by Naxi minority people. The world famous Lijiang Old Town featuring traditional Naxi architecture and local ethnic culture is designated as a World Heritage Site in 1997. The town is surrounded with splendid countryside landscape, luring nature lovers home and aboard.

Lijiang is dotted with all kinds of cultural and natural sites. The old town is traversed by several cobbled streets lined with souvenir shops, bars, guesthouses and cafes. The rivers meandering through the town and bridges across the rivers make the town even more elegant. In the center of the town is the residence of Mu Family, the ruler of Lijiang for several centuries. Ascending onto Wangu Pagoda, the highest point of the town, we can enjoy a full view of the townscape.

Shuhe Old Town to the northwest is in similar style, though many believe it not so noisy as Lijiang Old Town. Baisha Village is famous for its murals dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The main attractions on the snow-capped Jade Dragon Snow Mountain include Glacier Park, Spruce Meadow, Yak Meadow, Dry Sea and White Water River. Tucked between the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain is the 17-kilometer-long Tiger Leaping Gorge, a must-visited place for hiking lovers. A further drive will take you to Shangri-la, the earthly paradise blessed with incredible scenery. The mysterious marriage customs of Mosuo People in Lugu Lake have inspired a lot of curiosity in recent years.

Only one direct flight is available between Beijing and Lijiang. It lasts nearly 4 hours and is very unlikely to get discount. From Beijing to Lijiang, it’s JD5181 (07:45-11:30) and when getting back the flight number is JD5182 (16:55-20:35).
