Dali Travel Guide

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.
