Know More about this tour

Welcome to Dali, Yunnan!

In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel (within Dali Ancient Town) and taken to the meeting point.

(Sometimes Dali Ancient Town doesn't allow cars to go into small places, in that case, we will meet at meeting point.)

Then we will begin our tour round Erhai. Erhai lake gets its name Ear sea because its shaped like an ear. Erhai is also called Mother Lake, because Dali city and Bai ethnic culture revolves around the lake.

The first stop on the way is Xizhou old town, where you can see Bai-style traditional architecture. Xizhou is famous for its Bai ethnic and folk culture and its old and well-preserved traditional courtyards. It is not only a historically famous city in China but also an ancient economic hub along the tea-horse road. In Xizhou you can try a popular local snack, called Xizhou Baba. The second stop is Haishe park, where you can relax and enjoy the tranquil lake scenery.

Around noon we will arrive in Wase, a small town where you can see the whole panoramic view of Dali Ancient Town from afar. It is also a religious and cultural center of east Erhai.

After lunch, we will continue to Haidong where you can wetlands and see Jinsuo island. Jinsuo Island used to be a summer retreat for the King of Dali Kingdom, but now it has become a small fishing village. Afterwards we will slowly return back to Dali Ancient Town.

We wish you a fine trip to wherever you are off to next!
