Dali
Dali City (大理市), located in western Yunnan Province, China, was the capital of the ancient Nanzhao (南诏) Kingdom and Dali (大理) Kingdom. Dali City is inhabited by a concentration of minority peoples, mainly the Bai. At the heart of this scenic area is Dali Old Town, north of which stand the Three Pagodas of the Chongsheng (崇圣) Temple, a legacy of the Nanzhao and Dali Kingdoms. On the periphery of simple and elegant Dali are the majestic Cang (苍) Mountain and charming Erhai (洱海) Lake.

Town
_We***51Once a sleepy fishing village, Shuanglang has blossomed into a bustling tourist destination, complete with art shops, restaurants, hotels and music bars. But what really makes Shuanglang special, is its beautiful scenery. Situated on the curving road around Erhai Lake, the vistas of the water, mountains, clouds and blue skies, are something to behold. A blessing for the soul!

Historical Architecture
恰似您的温柔The Yan family of Xizhou is the richest man of the four families in Xizhou Ancient Town, Dali. In the 1930s, the Yan family saw the western-style building in Shanghai and loved it very much. So he spent a lot of money to buy all the materials from the big city to build a small western-style building. During the Anti-Japanese War, he received Lao She and other literary masters.

Mountain
Catalpa王[Scenery] Cangshan Mountain is behind the ancient city of Dali, to the west of Erhai Lake, the scenery is relatively beautiful. Locked walking is also relatively steep, Cangshan is also one of the four major scenic spots. Haibo has different landscapes. You can see Erhai Lake and Chongsheng Temple on the mountain. The mountains are relatively cold, so it is best to prepare winter clothes and oxygen cylinders in advance. If you go to mid-levels, you don’t need to take oxygen cylinders. Girls are best not to wear skirts. It’s really windy and pitted on it. It’s best to bring some food. The food on it is more expensive, so it’s best to prepare it carefully. It is recommended to go to Cangshan first. In the afternoon, you can play in the ancient city of Dali at night. The ancient city is more lively at night. The C10 bus from the ancient city of Dali can go to the ancient city of Dali, Tianlong Babu Film and Television City (Ximatan Cableway is just above). Some places such as the tourist bus terminal and the Three Pagoda Park are recommended. It's best to book tickets online in advance. The online price is a little cheaper. Come down from the mountain and let the Tianlong Babu Film and Television City play together. The film and television city has performances at different times.
