I have thoroughly enjoyed walking the ancient streets of Old Town Li Jiang. Remarkable architecture and beautiful river and mountain vistas. Any food in the world seems available. My favorite was N’s cafe for a western meal.

My boyfriend and I were looking around for tours and all of them are really expensive and we didn't book at first. Then we stumbled upon a really nice spa, called Eden Spa and we spoke to the owner who has lived there and travels a lot. She introduced us to a friend of hers who we booked a private car with for the next day to Tiger Leaping Gorge. If you want the contact you could message me privately and I can give you her contact via wechat. If not, good luck and have enjoy your trip!
