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.

Five Elements Hostel

Five Elements Hostel

I really like 5 Elements, but there were a few problems that while easily fixed might make your stay not as comfortable if you plan to stay more than a night or two.

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

Horrible stay; the staff was extremely rude, never smiled (only when we walked in before the check-in), nor greeted us when we left. 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

    Had a very-long and enjoyable day ;-). Went by train to Figueras, to visit the Teatre-Museu Dali, talk-about off the wall/planet. But I did gain new respect for the man's vision&style, he dabled in just about every art-form. Then a lunch-break, before ...
