For various reasons, Lugu Lake did not go, suddenly did not want to go so much, the return time became sufficient. I said I don't want to visit any old city anymore, but I fell in love with Baisha unexpectedly. It's quieter than Shuhe. When I open the window of the inn, I can see Yulong Snow Mountain. The landlady is bright and charming and considerate. She resolutely praises it. After so many days, she has eaten so many meals. What impresses me most is the welcome to Mr. Yang's restaurant here, just the small bridge in front of the door. Let people feel comfortable, old wooden buildings, tables and seat backs made of blue embroidery dyed cloth, revealing a strong Naxi cultural characteristics, the boss made a good dish, written a good hand, but also boiled a good hand of coffee, coffee cups are full of girls'hearts, this is a year-old thin old man's leisurely life, envious. Sitting here, I just want to sit a little longer. Originally, this is the right place for me to be in a daze. I will allow myself to forget all the people's work and life for a while and listen to the sound of running water quietly. In retrospect, I found a brewing beer shop opposite. I couldn't restrain my nature. I ran in and bought a cup of beer and sat down to enjoy the satisfaction of slight smoking and spreading. In fact, happiness is very simple. It's not difficult to be happy. Wandering in the street, there are more and more people who have no feelings. A small tuned clothing store attracted me to go in and see that a skirt had to give up because of the insufficient elevation. However, it did not affect my mood. I still continued to look around and enjoy the whole store. My eyes were attracted by the shopkeeper inadvertently. It's a coincidence that in the same age when white happened, I wore white clothes. The Pink Knitted waistcoat, the delicate silk scarf around the neck make people want to see more. The bright yellow casual shoes on their feet are so arrogant that they are enough. They can't help boasting. The same life and the bad posture make me think of what Venus said: noble women look at her shoes. A delicate woman looks at her nails. A sexy woman looks at her perfume. The temperamental woman looked at her watch. The money worshipper looked at her bag. An emotional woman reads her articles. The virtuous woman looked at her specialty dishes. Romantic woman looks at her pajamas. A petty woman looks at her cosmetic bag. After reading it, I began to doubt myself! Hurry up and take out your ID card. Gender: Female... In my heart, I'm sure.... Hey Ma, it's not easy. It doesn't occupy the same place. It's still alive and energetic.
The ancient city of Lijiang is a place where many tourists come to visit. Thin air, blue sky, in Lijiang, years of tolerance gift, let Lijiang's time go so slowly. Now Lijiang, Dayan's noise, Shuhe's quiet, in fact, there is an ancient town in Lijiang, Baisha, Baisha, which retains the more primitive Lijiang people's living habits, the primitive Dongba culture, the ancient streets, where you prefer to be dazed and think about life. This is a favorite town for foreigners. Many foreigners can be seen in this town. Baisha Ancient Town is located five kilometers north of Shuhe Ancient Town. If you live in Shuhe, I suggest you ride a bicycle. It takes about ten minutes to get to Baisha. The area at Baisha intersection is full of taxis. From Dayan, you can choose to take bus No. 6. It's also very convenient. However, it takes about half an hour for buses to travel. It's the end of the rainy season in Lijiang, that is, in August. Ten days later, you will see Gesanghua everywhere. Beautiful Gesanghua will accompany you all the way. After the rainy season in Lijiang, time begins to slow down. Blue penetration, there seems to be no clouds coming. But I went to Baisha in July, I have no chance to catch up with Gesanghua. I'm sorry. There are only two streets in Baisha, which can be finished soon. There is a Baisha mural in Baisha ancient town. If you are interested in Dongba culture, you can go and see it. If you pay the ancient wallet fee, you can enter by the ancient wallet ticket.
Zhong Lingyu-xiu, the former residence of Shali in Baisha ancient town with outstanding people is worth visiting. The courtyard is simple and quiet, full of Naxi farming style. The crabapple juice made by the former master and Shangzhong elder personally has a sweet and delicious taste and a long aftertaste. The owner is Sha Li's younger brother, Sha Li's original name is Shang Geng, a monk from Baisha Ancient Town, a former member of the Chinese Writing Association, the chairman of the Literary Federation of Lijiang City, the editor-in-chief of "Yulongshan" "Lijiang" magazine and 56 publications. He has published more than 6 million words in "People's Literature" "Chinese Writers" "Novel Monthly" "Poetry". The collection of essays "The Great Earthquake" won the 6th National "Literary Horse Award". Sha Li's works are the Encyclopedia of Naxi culture and the book of Lijiang. The host is cheerful, easygoing and hospitable, telling us the story of his brother and the interesting events of the town. Before leaving, the host invited us to pick and taste the ripe fruits in the yard and take pictures with us, hoping to help him publicize the farmyard of Shiliqiao and his special dishes, and let more friends visit the former residence of Shali, taste the Naxi cuisine, and feel the Naxi ethnic minority. Unique cultural connotation.
Lijiang has a slow life. Baisha Ancient Town, Dayan and Shuhe are the three ancient cities of Lijiang and the world cultural heritage. Baisha is the real birthplace of Mushi Chieftain, but due to the lag of development, Baisha has become a forgotten corner, tourists can not go here with the group. The last time we came here was six years ago, when the Naxi driver brought us here. It was so depressed and ruined that it was lifeless. This time, great progress has been made. There are supermarkets in the center of the city. Free travelers can meet basic needs. Only in Baisha can we truly experience the life of Naxi people, quiet, peaceful and world-free. By contrast, I prefer to stay here quietly, slow down and relax.
When entering the white sand, the rain was already heavy. Home cows walk slowly on the road. We drive slowly with us. It's beautiful to walk slowly in the rain. Baisha Ancient Town is still the first time to come, this time, with friends, they do not seem to have much interest, coupled with the heavy rain, they have no intention of getting off. So, after getting off and taking this picture of the gate building, I still sat back in the car. The next Baisha Tour is the car park. The old town of Baisha is not big, and the houses on both sides of the street are still old, which makes me very fond of it. The Naxi tie-dye hanging at the entrance of the shop became a bright spot in the rain. This ancient town has content. The cafes in the ancient town are also antique, adding charm in the rain. The old taste fits the temperament of the old town very well. Driving around the town, it rained all the time. In the rain, we drove slowly away from the white sand. I hope to come again. Traveling through the rain, behind the curtain of the ancient town's pristine and hidden rain, it seems that he is drunk and unwilling to wake up.
As recommended by Naxi Brother, Baisha is the best place to go if you want to find a quiet Lijiang. I would like to take a taxi to Baisha, but my driving elder sister recommended bus No. 6. It seems that there are not many people who go to Baisha. They get on the bus at the Guchengkou after crossing the road and arrive at Baisha Town for more than half an hour. The first thing I saw at the exit was the distant Yulong Snow Mountain. I did not hesitate to pay the ticket to visit the mural museum. Maybe it's too early to meet only two tourists. When I came out of the alley, I was alone. In line with my usual travel habits, I bought batik (65-70) and cushion (25, very cost-effective), as well as mural album (Xiaogui, 200 yuan). After that, I wandered aimlessly. Although the commercial atmosphere of Shuhe and Dayan was pale, it still made people feel the transformation of the ancient city. In fact, this is the double-edged sword of tourism. At noon "Sand Restaurant" was chosen, the environment is very good, but also affordable. After a while in the sun
Dayan Ancient Town, Shuhe Ancient Town, seems to have lost spirituality, perhaps too commercial, went to Baisha, it seems to see a lot of pure villages, cattle, old people gathering medicine, sleeping shop owners, tie-dyed grandmother, hope that Baisha's pure can be preserved a little more, do not become the next bunch of rivers.
The first stop in Lijiang is at "Qihai Coffee Cafe" in Baisha Ancient Town. Baisha is an ancient village far from the city's noisy primitive ecology. It's a small place. You can visit two "cross" dirt roads in Baisha for half an hour. The roads have not been repaired yet. You can take a taxi directly from the airport. You should know that the ancient town of Lijiang and Shuhe can't be driven by cars. Stone roads need to be entered on foot. If you are weary with a tie-rod box. Every day in the cafe, watching the occasional pedestrians, school children, cattle led by passers-by, cow dung everywhere, very primitive place, very quiet, looking up is the distant "Yulong Snow Mountain, Internet access, daze, hungry go to the town "Ding Fei Baozi shop" eat, casually order a few dishes, are delicious, very pleasant holiday time.
Baisha Ancient Town is the closest of the three ancient towns to the snow mountain. The three ancient towns are not far from each other by bus. In addition to the Baisha murals, tickets are required, and other places are free to visit. This is a place to be exploited. Everything is slowly and leisurely. Dyeing cloth in ancient town is a major feature. Every family has beautiful tie-dyeing and batik. One hundred yuan or so can buy a large beautiful batik cloth. There is a kind of golden sand fruit on the fruit stall of Baisha Guzhen bus station. It's not seen anywhere else. It's delicious and tastes like coconut.
Compared with the noise of Dayan ancient town and Shuhe ancient town, Baisha ancient town is quiet and secluded. It is far away from the city, with the original residents, this can feel the real Naxi family. There are also many cafes and bars run by foreigners, and even if there are not many tourists, they enjoy it. When I came here, I just caught up with the hiking team to hold a long dinner for 100 people. The bonfires are bright and set off against the snow mountains. The Naxi grandmothers beat around the bonfires. I believe that the people living here must be very happy, ordinary and special day.
