Ancient Settlement
The Lijiang Ancient City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has a history of over 800 years. It was an important stopover point in ancient times playing a very important role in the trading activities among Yunnan, China hinterland, Tibet, India and many other neighbouring Asian countries. The town is full of ancient wooden buildings, stone roads, and small bridges. It is the only old city built without a city wall. Standing in the city, you can see the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Several television series were also shot here. The former mansion of the Tusi people (Mu Mansion) and the Naxi ancient music performances should definitely be on your checklist.

Boat Tour
Erhai Lake is located on the eastern side of the ancient city of Dali at the foot of Mount Cangshan. Nominated as one of the four famous views in Dali, it is a destination you must not miss! The scenery there is spectacular. With good weather and lighting most of the year, it is an ideal location for landscape photographers. Every village surrounding the lake has its own unique style and highlights. One of the common ways of touring Erhai is to rent an electric scooter or car. There are also boat rides available if you want to visit the several islands and islets at the lake. Or, you can just simply find a seaview hotel next to Erhai and chill there for the day.

The Stone Forest is one of Kunming’s must-see sites. Boasting a classic karst topography, the Stone Forest is full of rocky peaks, jagged rocky outcroppings, water caves, and underground rivers. The Stone Forest is centered around the Major Stone Forest and Minor Stone Forest scenic areas. The Minor Stone Forest is thick with outcroppings of rocky peaks, and the Ashima Stone stands here, named after the legendary Yi maiden who turned into the stone when she was forbidden to marry the one she loved. At the Major Stone Forest scenic area, visitors can enjoy the reflection of the Stone Forest in the Lion Pool, or take a boat ride on the Stone Forest Lake.
