Lijiang, a popular destination in Yunnan Province, is considered a remote fairyland endowed with clean air, clear streams, breathtaking snow-capped mountains, and an undisturbed landscape. Visitors are easily drawn to a quiet and pleasant vacation in its Old Town which is graced by well-preserved ancient buildings and Naxi culture, one of China’s 55 minority ethnic groups.

Earliest recorded history of the city can be traced back to the Warring States Period but with the advent of the Tang Dynasty, the local economy reached a peak with the development of the Ancient Tea-Horse Road – a road that made significant contribution to both commercial and cultural exchange between Tibet, Sichuan and Yunnan provinces.

In its long history, the local residents have established their vibrant Dongba Culture which has interwoven elements of Tibetan and Central Plains culture mixed in with the way of life along the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River. Souvenirs marked with Dongba hieroglyphs are very popular with visitors from other parts of China and abroad.
