Lijiang is a beautiful shining jewel at the Northwest Yunnan Plateau connecting the southeast side of the Tibentan Plateau. With a long history, there are many wonderful natural sceneries and cultural treasures in Lijiang area, such as the Old Town of Lijiang, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Lugu Lake, Dongba Culture, Naxi Classical Music, Baisha Murals and Frescos, Mosuo Ethnic Groups Culture etc. The area of Lijiang is one of the most attractive and favorite tourist destinations in China.

Thanks Rong - makes me feel even more enthusiastic about visiting.

maybe you can try someplaces which in centrol of the town. There are do many small hotels which are sat near by historical remains in Lijiang. Normally it is run by local people and the hotels' style is very trodational. if you are lucky some runners might give you discount.
I have been Lijang, Dali and Shangarila about three years ago, which was a fantasitc experience. and the time that you are going to is the most beautiful season in Yunna. Don't forget to visit Yulong Mountain. Have fun!

Good luck,
Annie

I suggest ZenGardenHotel in lijiang, there is a new high-quality hotel that provides excellent accommodation, personalized service, and a secure and harmonious hotel environment.

About Dali, I'm regret, I haven't time to go there at present.

I would highly recommend Old Xie's IYH in the old town of Lijiang.

There's one place in Dali to avoid the dorm accom [the communal toilets and showers are, erm, interesting] which is the #4 guesthouse, i think. Having said that, the place is otherwise good with a nice courtyard and the private rooms are fine, providing they are en suite.

However, there is also a number #5? which is really good, so be careful.... I never remember with of the numbered guesthouses is teh bad one! Apart from that, they are mostly fine. There is an official IYHA hostel in Dali which is very good, and a Korean place i'd also happily recomend.
