Getting tourist board information right before and even during your vacation in Lijiang, China can really help you benefit from the most up-to-date details about the region you are visiting. Perhaps there is a festival occurring that is new on the calendar that a tourist board can help you with. Whenever traveling to China, you should always be up-to-date on the current travel warnings issued by the U.S. government.

The United States Government has a Consular Information page dedicated China which is full information regarding the current political climate in the country, safety and health concerns as well as the law differences. Checking with your own government or the host country's embassy is necessary before traveling to China to make sure you meet all of the entry-requirements. The U.S. government provides a list of requirements on the Consular Information page.

Visiting  China's online tourist board will also help you prepare for your trip to the beautiful country. The site will educate you on all the different regions, their highlights and events and provide you with maps and help on how to get there.

Lijiang does not have its own tourist board but the Yunnan Province does and it covers the city with plenty of useful information.
