We visited the town after seeing the nearby frescos and were absolutely delighted. Prettier than shaxi but less touristy than Lijiang Old Town it was an absolute delight. As we walked into the town, a quartet of native musicians started playing and encouraged us to...More

We had a late lunch at the town, quiet delicious and the folks at this local eatery were friendly. It was pouring during our visit, but the genuineness and good nature of the local folks left a positive impression of this place

We took the number 6 local bus from the north gate of lijiang ancient town to Baisha Village. It is fairly small but the atmosphere is lively! There is people playing music and the square was alive with sellers

It was part of our visit to an Embroidery School. Quaint old buildings but every thing else was very touristy. If you enjoy people watching and wandering in and out of shops, then you will enjoy yourself.
