Lijiang is a popular tourist destination in Yunnan. Check out the difference between "Old Town" and "New Town" in the last photo. We stayed here and purchased supplies before our trip down the Great Bend of the Yangtze. Old Town is basically a gigantic artisan market, full of local Naxi handcrafts and touristy-type shops. The coolest part about Old Town Lijiang is its antiquity in architecture and layout. It is basically a maze of stone streets and buildings, some dating back nearly 1000 years.
