Shuhe is a small village a couple miles to the north of Lijiang, in Yunnan province. It has similar old architecture as Lijiang with similar places to buy Naxi woven cloth and products from local artisans. A major advantage over Lijiang is that it...more

Just walked one round to explore Shuhe Ancient Town in Lijiang, a lit bit far from Lijiang Old Town (around 10km). They usually have a traditional performance for tourists. From Lijiang South Gate, take the taxi to reach there.
Shuhe Ancient Town has it’s own unique. The rocks pavement road in the old town are still in good condition but abit slippery because the stones are all very shining after millions of people walking on it. The boutique hotels are all unique with it’s...More
We visited to Shuhe old town after Yulong mountain. We spend around 1 hour here to do a short visit. My tour member bought some local tradisional medicine. Many horses waiting along the road and the owner keep asking whether you want to ride the...More
I’m sitting in a coffee shop, listening to the cashier sing along to the music and watching the gentle stream outside. It’s lovely. Like others have said, Shuhe is a more chill version of Lijiang and without the pick-up scene. It’s what I thought Dali...More
We travelled to Lijiang during Mid-Autumn festival and we stayed in a hotel in Shuhe and therefore we had many chances to walk around this small ancient town.
You certainly can't say that Shuhe is not touristy but if you compare it to Lijiang it...More
A quieter version of Lijiang, Shuhe retains most of its traditional character with less crowds Many restaurants line the streets and at night the town has a vibe.
Traditional Chinese architecture and narrow alleys provide a special charm.
We were wowed by Lijiang but at the wrong time, it came become oppressive, all these stores selling the same again and again. In Shuhe, we felt the same peace as in Shaxi (even if Shaxi is even more authentic). The streets are larger, the...More
We stayed up near here, so ended up dropping by during every day of our stay in Lijiang.
Was great, and although well-trafficked, a better & more interesting mix for me than the main old town. Wish we'd stayed in it. Worth wandering, both the...More
Delightful old town with streetscapes from the lost past and although basically a shopping precinct has a quiet, warm ambience. We weren’t there in peak tourism and strolling through the old town was a delight. Take your time. Beautiful silverware and things to feast your...More
From the ancient cobble stone street to the narrow pathway, this place is packed with tourists, but still maintains some type of tranquility. The water running along the town is clear and not polluted. We dined at one of the local Restaurant and it was...More
