Lijiang Old Town - Review

The old town area of Lijiang preserves the traditional culture of the region. It is home to the minority clan of Naxi. The Naxi people are very particular about the aesthetic of their town and hence this place is a wonder to behold. Not only have the old houses and streets been well preserved, they have been improved upon gorgeously. But the old traditions have not been forgotten. Geographically this place is located at a height of 2400 metres. A river flows through it and it is surrounded by other mountains. The architecture is a mix of multicultural elements. The houses are built close to each other. The houses have gardens with beautiful flowers. The streets are narrow. The walls and doors have designs of people and animals on them. This place will make you feel nostalgic. Highlights and must sees include:
