Dali

Sitting under the towering peak of Cang Shan Mountain in Yunnan, China, next to serene Er Hai lake, Dali (大理) couldn't have a more dramatic setting. Well established on tourist itineraries for both Western and Chinese travellers, Dali is blessed with a interesting restored old town, refreshing climate and great countryside.

Stayed here for a fantastic week. We had a family suite, which was perfect for us, with our own en suite! Clean and simple. We asked for the bathroom to be cleaned midstay and it was done efficiently. Location great - right on doorstep of old town, and quiet being away from the hustle and noise. ... more

We asked for information and they only tried to sell us their package tours, lying to us about the info we asked (we found out later). The rooms aren't clean. ... more
