Immerse yourself in the natural beauty, heritage and customs of Lijiang, one of China’s oldest cities, starting with a breathtaking cable-car tour on Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Experience the traditions of local ethnic minorities when you watch the “Impression Lijiang” cultural show. Visit a traditional Naxi courtyard house and learn to draw from a Lao Dongba — a cultural leader of the Naxi people and an expert on local rituals. Afterward, draw the Naxi character you created on a T-shirt and take it home as a souvenir! Then, stop at the Old Town of Lijiang, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which dates from the 12th century. Nestled in a valley beside mountains and a river, it became the central home of the Naxi people. Pedestrian Square Street, in the heart of the town, is lined with well-preserved traditional houses and shops.
