    Default Lijiang Travel Advice

    I am planning to travel to Lijiang for a short break next month. Apparently, it is designated as one of the World Heritage site by UNESCO and I look forward to the cool weather and nice photo opportunities there.

    I need advice on a good hotel there which is located at or very near the ancient city. Was tempted to book the Banyan Tree but understand it is located away from the old city. Any ideas which is a good 5 star hotel at or very near the ancient city?

    Thanks!

    you have posted in wrong section bro...

    pls re-locate your thread to Travel Photography section .... it will surely garner more feedback as forumers who are travel addicts will always check in there.

    top right corner of your thread you will find 'Thread Tools'.... use that function to move the thread

    bro daredevil , kuantoh and a couple of others should be a fountain of information

    I never actually stayed at Guanfang, but been there for xmas dinner on my stay in Lijiang. The hotel looks very beautiful, and certainly one of the classier hotels in Lijiang.

    IIRC, Banyan Tree Lijiang is amongst the most expensive hotel in China, but it's located on the foothills of YuLong, so might be a little too far.

    Guanfang is quite cool as compare with Banyan.

    Lijiang is combined with nature in an organic and integral unity. It is built on the hillsides of three mountains.Tile-roofed houses are arranged closely side by side within the brace of green mounts, where the common people's residences, simple in shape and elegant in decoration, draw wide attention.
