We stayed in Baisha Village for 5 days and absolutely loved it! It's a quaint, sleepy little village, away from the hustle and bustle of Lijiang. Stunning backdrop of the mountains and we loved being able to see them from our hotel window. Although visited...More

This is a small town about an hours bike ride outside of Lijiang. It is much smaller than Lijiang and was a wonderful insight into traditional village life of the Naxi people. There are a few cafes and shops but it is quite small. We...More

...so, if you're in Shuhe, the ancient frescoes and artefacts in the few complexes into which you can venture probably make it worth another twenty minutes drive. But all the way from Lijiang? Maybe wait for the whole site to be accessible again. To reflect...More

This is a smaller version of the old Lijiang town, more authentic and quieter. You can walk the narrow streets and find shops and a few restaurants, also walk some of the back routes, which enable you to even more appreciate the way life today...More

Despite being much smaller than Lijiang, this beautiful little town allows tourists to have a glimpse at real life of the locals. The Naxi people could be easily spotted going to the market, sipping tea & chatting with their friends or neighbours & the children...More

We rented a moped with my wife from Shuhe and drove there which was so much fun. We also went into the mountains with the moped which I recommend. Baisha old town is small, about two streets but the street food is the best we...More

Interesting to spend a couple of hours and lunch at a typical Naxi restaurant called Impression Baisha Cafe to experience good local food. It's not so touristy so its quiet and not many people buying the local handicraft which are quite cheap.

Just like Shuhe, this town is not so touristy but also not as pretty as Lijiang. I would skip this place and go for a paid day trip to one of the surround natural areas instead.
