Lijiang is a popular destination in southwest China. The historic city is famous for its idyllic streets, authentic houses, attractive surrounding landscapes, and century-old Naxi culture.

The city is also called 'Venice of the East', thanks to its infrastructure of waterways and bridges. Lijiang's Old Town has been a registered UNESCO Heritage Site since 1997, and it thrives due to its tourism. However, it sees mostly domestic tourism. This makes it feel very authentic for foreigners.

When should you visit Lijiang?

Lijiang is suitable for traveling year round. It has mild, warm winters and cool summers. A perfect time to visit Lijiang is in spring, when the cherry blossoms are in full swing. Try to avoid Chinese public holidays, as Lijiang will be especially flooded with visitors on those days.

What to do in and around Lijiang?

In the city, you can wander around endlessly, admiring the typical architecture, narrow streets, and local products, but there are also a number of sights, such as:

  • The Lijiang Impression Show is a cultural show about the traditions and habits of the Naxi, Yi, and Bai inhabitants in the area. It is shown in the highest outdoor theater in the world.
  • A little north of Old Town, you will find Black Dragon Pool, the most photographed spot in Lijiang. The surrounding park is the perfect spot to go for a walk.

Besides those attractions in Lijiang, there is also a lot to do in Lijiang surroundings.
