Lijiang Ancient Town: Lijiang Ancient Town is a largely Naxi settlement first built 800years agao, located at the foot of the Lion Hill and completely surrounded by the new city of Lijiang.In December 1986, the State Council designated it a famous ancient historical and cultural city of national caliber. In 1997, UNESCO made Lijiang a World Cultural Heritage Site. Most of the dwellings, scattered at the foot of a mountain or by the river, are brick-and-tile structures with carved doors and painted windows. Traffic across the river is facilitated by a large number of tiny stone bridges. The town is similar to the Zhouzhuang Water Town in the south of the Yangtze River.

Day 2: Lijiang (B,L)

Black Dragon Pool Park: As the water is as green and lucid as jade, the pond is also entitled "Yuquan" or Jade Fountain. One can see arbours and pavilions beside the pond, temples hidden in the trees and variegated flowers found everywhere. (1.5h)

Around 15 km in length, the gorge is located where the river passes between 5,596m Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and 5,396m Haba Snow Mountain in a series of rapids under steep 2000 meter cliffs. Legend says that in order to escape from a hunter, a tiger jumped across the river at the narrowest point (still 25 meters wide), hence the name.

Asked by Pimla** Date Added:
Question: Your questions about our tour package?:,We have an extra day for this trip. Would it be possible to add another day tour for us? If possible, how much will it cost in total? and what else we could go see? We would like to know if you have any interesting place apart from what listed in the plan. We are more interested in nature rather than cultural places. Can we please have your suggestion in order to customise this trip according to what suits us and also possible for you to arrange? We are travelling from Bangkok, Thailand to Kunming on the 9th of August and will catch a domestic flight to Lijiang. So, we might need to book a hotel in Lijiang that night in order to start a tour in the next morning. Will you be able to help us on this?

Asked by Za** Date Added:
Question: Hi, ,We have a group of 6-8 people planning for 10 days in Yunnan in July,We will be arriving in kunming on 11 July, and spend 3 / 4 days in kunming and Dali, and plan to get to lijiang on 14 July by bus,Saw your itinerary for 6 days lijiang - shangri-la sight seeing and trekking trip and it looks quite interesting. So wondering if you could help us to arrange this portion of our trip. Following are my questions:,1. What would be your best price for us? Given our group size, I think you could arrange a minibus for us? I think the price quoted online is a bit high, and hope you could give us some discount,2. We are a young group in our late 20s or early 30s, so some nice trekking will be nice, and preferably not going to many too touristic places. Hope we could discuss the itineraries in more details once you could confirm spots for us,3. I assume all accommodations are arranged for us? P.s. Most of the group is American, some are on their first trip to China. I am a native Chinese and helping them to coordinate,Look forward to hear from you soon,Zack ,+65 9733 9993
Answer:

Hi Zack,

If you have a group of 6-8 person to Lijiang and Dali, we can check and offer you a discounted price. But firstly, we have to make sure what is included in the price and what is your plan.

1. You mean from Kunming to Lijiang by bus? This is NOT recommended, as it will take about 8 hours driving, and will cost a lot for this way transfer. So You may think about take early morning flight to Lijiang or Dali.

2. The 6 Days tour package you saw includes the visit to Lijiang and Shangri-La, NO Dali, so please tell whether do you like a tour to Lijiang, Dali or Shangriu-La? How many days?

3. Now it's travel peak season in Yunnan, all price is fairly high if you want to have a qualified tour service. So you may let us know your schedule, then we can check how much we charge for our service.

4. For hotel, we can book it for you, how about budget 3 star hotel?

So take a look and reply me

Question: Your questions about our tour package?:,Is this a group or a private tour? Please give prices for both,We are 56 and 60 years old and in good walking/hiking shape. What is your recommendation for people joining this tour and hiking tour at this altitude? My wife will be coming directly from San Francisco and returning there.

I need to be back in Beijing on Sunday 19 August for a conference,We would like to visit both the Guilin region (with a boat tour on Li River to Yangshou) and also the Yunnan Province (6 Days Lijiang-Shangri-la Sightseeing & Trekking Tour),We need bookings for hotels and flights. I need internal flights in China and my wife needs both internal flights and the round trip international flight from San Francisco,We would like a hotel room with a private bathroom (Moderate priced Hotel, 4 Star?)
Answer:

Dear Miles Rubin,

For the Guilin and Yunnan tour packages, we can arrange it for you as private tour because there might be no other guests join in.

When you arrive in Beijing, will you start the tour directly to Guilin or Yunan or you will tour in Beijing first?

After you get back to Beijing, do you still need us to book hotel for you during your conference period?

For interantional flight, please book at your own conuntry because it's more easier and cheaper, and we can issue China domestic flights for you.

Please reply me so that I can check itinerary and price for you
