It's very necessary to go to Xizhou in Dali. It's near Huanhai West Road, so it's very convenient to go. In addition, many cars will pass through Xiaguan or the ancient city of Dali. Xiaguan North Bus Station to Xizhou is also 8 to 10 yuan. Xizhou is mainly characterized by Bai nationality, which is mainly embodied in Bai nationality residences. Like many ancient towns in Dali and even Yunnan, there is Sifang Street. Sifang Street goes straight from the archway of "Hanlin" to the right at the crossroads. On this road, you can see the very old buildings in Xizhou. Xizhou is a traditional Bai architecture. The buildings of "Sanfang Yizhaobi" "Sihewutianjing" can be seen in this street. Walk along the street to a T-junction. To the right is the business center of Xizhou, which is near the market and the market. Here you can see the traditional market of Xizhou, what crops are produced in the season, as long as you look at the market, you will know. Of course, it is Xizhou Ciba that must be eaten in Xizhou. The legendary Oriental pizza is worth having. There are two kinds of Xizhou bamboo, sweet and salty, which are the difference of filling. The main sweet is brown sugar, while the salty is meat. Usually 6-10 yuan per unit. Of course, with so many bamboo sticks sold, the monk's family is authentic and delicious. If the monk's family is not there, the revival is also good. So, yes. In addition to Bai folk houses, Xizhou can also go to embroidery Fang to see, Xizhou has several embroidery fangs, are in the lanes such as dyeing lane, are Bai unique embroidery, all hand-embroidered, but also recruit apprentices. Xizhou is an ancient town without admission tickets. Although there are large archways under the traffic lights with four characters of Xizhou Ancient Town written and charged, Sifang Street is the center of Xizhou Ancient Town and does not accept admission tickets, including ancient buildings, embroidery fangs and alleys, all of which are free of charge, so we should pay attention to it. Finally, we recommend the Golden Flower Hotel, which is located in Sifang Street. It is a historic and well-known hotel in Xizhou. The roses and peach blossoms are very good.
Coming to Xizhou, I have to mention the famous Xizhou Ciba, which is a local snack, also known as Xizhou Crisp, sweet and salty, attractive flavor. Five yuan out of town. In the city, it's 10 yuan. And pea powder. Roast fan. You can try it. In the old city, you can buy some local Bai special clothes. The workmanship is exquisite. The price is about 100. Xizhou can reach Chongsheng Santa Pagoda by the local tricycle for a few kilometers and a dozen yuan. If you live, you can choose Caicun Wharf or Xiaoyi Village. It's very close to the sea. And all the inns have rooftops. You can see the sunrise. And sunset. Back to the hill. There is sea ahead. It feels great.
Xizhou is the most primitive, primitive and primitive town that I think is worth feeling. There are not too many tourists here, not too noisy, not too commercial, even the small baskets are sold by grandma, things can not say how cheap, but at least not too expensive, here you can feel the carriage, see the most primitive local people live in the simple tile house, but the buildings here are pure white, neat and uniform. You can also eat the Xizhou Ciba on the tip of your tongue in China. There are two kinds of taste: salty meat and sweet brown sugar. You can taste it. It's really delicious! In Xizhou, you have to go to Haitong Eco-Park, which is adjacent to Erhai Lake on all sides, so that you can enter the scenery of Erhai Lake.
I went to several places in Dali, but luckily I went to Xizhou. Xizhou is not commercialized very much. Many of them are handicraft products made by my grandmother. Although they may not be practical, they are really crafts made with great care. The things I bought are not beautifully packaged, and there are no very exquisite food materials, but they are authentic, delicious and enough. It was said that Dali must have thought of double corridors before, but I have been to Xizhou. Afterwards, I prefer Xizhou, quiet, comfortable, relaxed, the wind is not as big as the double corridors. In the morning, I can watch the sunrise in bed, have a cup of tea in hand, and a gust of wind in my face. That's enough.
Xizhou is really worth visiting, more than the ancient city of Dali; this is where the real Bai people live, where there are the most and best Bai people's buildings. Lunch here, super rich, all Bai ethnic characteristics, spicy and sour fish, fried eggs bark, osmanthus soup... I don't remember. Of course, there's ice cream here. It's full of milk. Shops here can be carefully visited yo, very distinctive.
I didn't go to Xizhou Ancient Town to live there. I live in Jia Kedi in the village. It is said that over 500 years old houses have been renovated. We brought our children with us. We rented an electric car and shuttled through the village every day. The children played with the local children at night and ran around on the mud road. Every day, they were very happy. There was a blue tie-dye in the village, so they could have their own body. Experience, Zhou Cheng tie-dyeing is the most famous. This Lan Xuan and Lan Xuan of Zhou Cheng are family. We didn't go to Zhou Cheng to make fun. It took a long time for our children to draw pictures by themselves. It used to be difficult for the former people. This is too complicated to do. But the most important thing is that the shop has a super beautiful scenery, a broad vision, beside the rice fields and the blue sky and white clouds, which give people a very pleasant mood and make tea by hand. Great. The food is blooming on the street. The cooking is super delicious. It's much better than the millet fields. We go there every day. It's said that it's also the Nethong Hotel. The relatives here recommend it to you.
When I arrived at Xizhou, the first thing I saw was that the two branches and leaves at the head of the village were more numerous than the trees. This is a rare tree in northern China, commonly known as evergreen, scientific name is alpine banyan. Bai people believe that Daqing Tree is a symbol of the prosperity of a village, so it is also called "Fengshui Tree". Daqingshu is an ancient Bai village with its own geomantic trees. The trees usually form a group activity center with the stage for villagers. The two trees at the head of Xizhou village are very old. Legend has it that there are two trees with one Yin and one yang, one sprouting and the other deciduous leaves, which start again and again and flourish alternately, one bearing fruit and the other never bearing fruit. During the interval of work, villagers often take a nap under the trees; the long serpent-like procession around the village revels around it; even when the village dies, the funeral crowd will also circle around it and burn the paper covers under the trees in order to support the dead's attachment to the village. Not far from the village in the Northeast corner, there is also an old lady green tree. When autumn comes, there are always snow-white heron storks, which is a unique landscape of Xizhou. Sifang Street, Xizhou repression center, is a small square surrounded by shops. Here stands a stone square, which is the "Civilization Square" built in recent years. The original Stone Square in this place was called "Tianming Square" built after several Jinshi in the town of Ming Dynasty. At that time, all villagers who gained fame in the imperial examination were likely to engrave their names. Now Xizhou is the place where administrative divisions suppressed the expropriation of government, but in history it has a city size. As early as before Nanzhao migrated to Erhai, this was the settlement of Bai ancestors "Heman". At that time, it was called Dali City. The inhabitants already had many Nikkei scriptures. Legend has it that Shi Wanshi, a general of Sui Wendi Emperor, had a soldier and horse here. It was also called Shicheng. The nearby Pingba Zi was called "Shilai" (the same meaning as Dian Advertising State). When Nanzhaomo arrived, the palace was built here. The pattern of the city can be traced from the current place names. There are village names such as the north, East and south of the city. In the past, archaeologists have excavated the word tiles, thick cloth tiles and lotus tiles in Nanzhao.
My favorite part of this trip to Dali is Xizhou Ancient Town. There is not so much commercial atmosphere, but the motorcycle is a bit of a dismal scene. Handmails such as rose sauce and brown sugar can be bought in Xizhou, which is cheaper than the old city of Dali and sold by local people as they are made. Xizhou bamboo is still in the middle of Xizhou. A few days after my friend returned to Guangzhou, he was still thinking about eating Xizhou bamboo to recommend the Osprey family. The owner was very good and helped us recharge three cars free of charge. The meals were delicious and cheap. Five people ate about 250.
This is the real ancient city with Yunnan characteristics. Unlike the old city of Dali, the old city of Dali is too commercial. Unfortunately, there are not many people here. I came back to Dali from Erhai and came to see it on the way. Here I invited a golden flower to accompany me. It is necessary to invite a tour guide. The explanation is very meticulous. From folklore to history, we have talked about it and learned a lot. We visited it for nearly two hours. There is no beautiful scenery here, but there is an old city with original flavor.
It was only when I went to Xizhou that I really felt comfortable. Carved beams and painted pillars in residential buildings, hanging feet and flying eaves. Bai people attach great importance to housing, and some people even devote their lives to building a decent house. Even some of the ruined houses, we can see that the building is exquisite. Xizhou is not an ancient city like Dali and Lijiang Zouhe. Xizhou is Xizhou. It is tolerant and will not increase or decrease. When I went there, I met a photography team from Guangxi, which was an unexpected achievement. Xizhou is well worth visiting.
