This was taken in the old town of Shuhe 束河古城, 15 minutes from the old town of Lijiang.

 

Some say the old town of Lijiang (which is also called the Dayan old town) is too commercialised. This I have to agree. It is full of tourists and the music from the bars at night sometimes are too loud for the enjoyment of an old town.

 

This Shuhe old town is a lot smaller but it retains its special feel of rural oldness. I would recommend everyone who are planning for a trip to Lijiang / Yunnan to give this place a visit!
