Lijiang

After Dali, I continue North and make my way to Lijiang (丽江 lit. beautiful river). I'm lucky to make all the way in a small slow truck which avoids the newly built expensive motorway full of tunnels, to take the old road accross the mountains instead, allowing me to enjoy the beautiful landscape.

Lijiang is a very old city with a lovely old town having little canals going all around. That makes it a very popular destination, crowded by tourists. But well, I know what to expect and here the old town is authentic unlike Dali or the other popular neightbouring city of Shangri-la. So I will spend a day there, trying to escape the crowd a bit and getting lost in the small charming streets.
