Suzhou on the Plateau
The cultural capital of the Naxi people, one of the 55 minority ethnic groups in the country, Lijang traces its history back over 800 years, with the city developing from a trading post on the ancient Southern Silk Road. The World Heritage-protected old town area displays an attractive system of canals, ornate bridges, and wooden architecture, which you can explore by foot along the old cobblestone streets, or by boat. Nearby mountains and small, authentic towns provide other places to see when on holiday in Lijang. Our China journey planning website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
