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!

This is the centre of Lijiang old town, where the shops start. You can virtually get here from anywhere inside Lijiang. Very nosy at night with Karaoke and singing in the restaurants.
