  • There's almost no point going there if you've been to lijiang old town. It's basically the same but with more loud bars and tourist cars blasting loud music through the streets. Go a little bit north....  more »
  • It s a nice old town which still has a few old building, but it starts to loose it's soul. Most of it is already becoming a Disneyland.  more »

  • Shuhe is relatively quiet compare to Lijiang DaYan even both also old heritage town in Lijiang, but you may ride horse in shuhe and not in Lijiang Dayan
