Boned in a remote village surrounded by endless mountains in Yunnan, I always had the dream to travel and see the world beyond. So I studied very hard in school and became the first university student in my little village.
Address:North Lashi Lake, Lijiang Antient Town District
Price:30 Yuan per person
Rich in cultural and biological diversity, the Lashi Lake watershed is home to two minority ethnic groups, the Naxi and the Yi, and provides critical habitat for the endangered black-necked crane. The watershed is also the primary water supply to a large downstream population and the rapidly growing tourism industry in the historic city of Lijiang.
Address:No. 11 Qingyun Village, Longquan Community, Shuhe Old Town, Lijiang
Arro Kampa is a local owned chain hotel in Lijiang and Shangrila. Both hotels are beautifully designed, in local style. The one in Lijiang combines the luxurious comfort with the beautiful nature around, as well as the leisure atmosphere in Lijiang. It is so so simply and beautifully designed that you feel life is so good, and i love being here.
Address:Jishan Lane, Xinyi Street, Old Town, Lijiang, China
There is a local saying that Lijiang is the world of woman, and the heaven for man. When visiting Lijiang, you see women or gilrs are busyy here and there, serving people in local markets, shops, hotels and restaurants. Local women are really running this world well. Lamu and her family's girls are one of these. As a family owned restaurant, all staffs are Lamu's cousins or nieces.
Address:Dabaoji Temple, Napa Lake, Jiantang Township
Price:5-40 Yuan per person
Diqing Prefacture, known as the Shangri-la to the outer world, is such a rich, beautiful and mysterious land for Chinese and foriegn travellers. Sitting on the highland, with altitude above 3300 meters high, it is still a home for virgin forest, snow capped mountains, wild ferocious animals, beautiful plants and rivers, precious herbs and mushrooms.
Address:Bamei Town,Guangnan County, Wenshan Prefacture
A village which has been isolated for hundreds of years, all sufficient by itself, and the only channel to connect with the outer world is a cave, where you have to take boat in and out. Is there anything like this, at all? Yes, it's Bamei, about almost 8-10 hours drive from Kunming.
Address:Sideng Jie, Aotou Village, Shaxi Town, Jianchuan County, Dali, Yunnan
Price:30 Yuan per bed, 150-280 Yuan per room
No. 58 Yard is one of my passion in Shaxi. It is a lovely cozy guesthouse with only 6 rooms, a cute little garden leisurely designed by the owner, who is from Taiwan. She is a quiet and artistic beauty. Anything she touches simply becomes beautiful. Never advertising any where, but No. 58 Yard remains the most popular one in Shaxi all year round.
It is the middle of January in 2012. It has been snowing for about a week. The road got blocked by the heavy snow. We've been watching the sky and finally the sun shines, and finally we made the trip to Shangrila, with two customers from Austrilia.
