Oct 16 I realize that this is a "must do" for visitors to Lijiang, but I fail to see much relevance to Lijiang or its history or culture. There are costumes, horses, a cast of hundreds, and even a loose plot dealing with clouds and...More

Even though we visited on a really overcast day and couldn’t see the mountain, this was brilliant. We particularly enjoyed how it celebrates the ethnic minorities of Yunnan through song and dance. The choreography was great and there is a scrolling display with English subtitles...More
