The square is the centre and an ideal place to orientate yourself. Here we found banks, ATMs and a tourist information office. Doesn’t have the atmosphere of the small streets and alleys.

It is one of the most crowded area at Lijiang old town. Especially at night, when people came back from their day excursions, you wouldn’t be able to walk without bumping to each other. However, it livened up the place.

小川と柳と古い建物。商店街はテーマパーク化していますが、やはり建造物には抜群の風情かあります。Streams, willows and old buildings are very good. Shopping areas are being theme park-ized, but those's have outstanding tastes as expected in buildings.

When we were there, there were a lot of old ladies singing and dancing. It was very fun to experience this. It is a lovely square and a nice photo opportunity.

This place is quite packed with tourists, commercialized and loud! However, the shows and dances here are interesting to see! You won't miss it anyway when walking around Lijiang Old Town!
