Day 1 Beijing - Lijiang
Today you will take a flight from Beijing to Lijiang by yourself. The air tickets are on our arrangement. Our local guide will warmly greet you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel. After a short rest, you will have a visit of the Lijiang Ancient Town. The Square Street is the heart of the town, with four main streets leading to different directions and more branches from them, connecting every corner of the town with the square. While walking through the old town, you could have a stroll on the stone-paved Square Street, appreciating the beautiful natural sceneries and the distinctive local residences.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Day 2 Lijiang
A local vegetable market
Today, you will explore the scenic Lijiang. Firstly visit the Baishui River (White Water River) which is formed by runoff from the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The water is extremely clean and the white riverbed can be seen clearly. After that, travel to the Dry Sea, which is located at the east foot of the elegant Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. As is implied by its name, the Dry Sea was once a lake but later dried up. Nowadays, it is a natural grazing ground covered by carpet-like meadow. Then, you will take the cable car to Spruce Plateau, which is a verdant lawn hiding behind a primeval spruce forest. It is a beautiful and tranquil fairyland under heaven. Here, you may also overlook the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, which are the closest snow mountains to the equator. Its highlights are the thirteen snowy peaks.

Getting down from the Spruce Plateau, you will head for Baisha Village, which is the former political, economic and cultural center of Lijiang. There are some magnificent ancient buildings in the village. Here, visiting a local Naxi family will appease your curiosity about the customs and living habits of Chinese minority groups. After that, enjoy Baisha Murals, a well-known local art form and the ones in Dabaoji Palace and the Colored Glaze Temple are among the best.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day 3 Lijiang - Kunming

Our guide will see you off at the airport for your morning flight to Kunming, also called the 'Spring City' because of its nice weather all year round. It is also a clustering place of Chinese ethnic minorities with diversified culture. Upon arrival, our local guide will pick you up at Kunming Airport and transfer you to the hotel. After a rest, you will be transferred to visit the Stone Forest, a natural wonder known as the 'World Karst Landscape Museum' as well as a hot destination for visitors both from home and abroad. The scenic area mainly consists of Major Stone Forest, Minor Stone Forest, Naigu Stone Forest and Long Lake which display various stone formations in shapes of animals, plants and even human figures. You will marvel at the splendor of these natural formations when touring it.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day 4 Departure from Kunming

Take subway line 6 to East Coach Station and change to line 3 to Wuyi Rd. Then, walk southeast for 10mins to the square.
Then, take bus 4 to Yuantongshan, where you can see the temple.

travel in Yunnan near Dali or other?
I am interested in staying somewhere peaceful in the countryside. We will travel from Kunming. How would we get to see the YuanYang Rice Terraces and how far is that from Kunming? Is there somewhere peaceful for two Americans to stay in that area? We are considering staying at the Linden Centre near Dali but I wonder if there are sights closer to Kunming that we might enjoy a lot also. We especially enjoy nature such as rivers or mountains, or the countryside life. Also would the rice terraces have water in them around April 11-16 time? Thank you.

It’s around 310km south to Kunming city, and you can take a bus from South Bus Station to Yuanyang Xinjie and then catch a taxi to the scenic area. There is water in the rice terraces at the at that time.
As for other places, Linden Center is good. Besides, Stone Forest, the Long Lake and Dadieshui Waterfall near Kunming are recommended!

Will it be possible to do Lijiang and Dali in 5-6 days?
Answers (1)
Answered by Hank from GERMANY | Dec. 24, 2017 20:35

Of course and the time can be sufficient to tour both places. As for Lijiang, the must-sees include the Old City, Impression Lijiang Show and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. And that for Dali are the Ancient Town, Mt. Cangshan, and Erhai Lake. If you are interested in hiking in Tiger Leaping Gorge, it can be an option as well, taking 1-2 days.
