Recommended hotel in Lijiang:
Lijiang attracts many tourists, both foreign and native. For this reason, its hotels are somewhat more expensive. Without a doubt, you should stay inside the Old City to experience what it's like to be in a medieval village. Because it's so old, however, many of the buildings and homes lack certain amenities (hot water, heat...). Before making a hotel reservation, be sure the hotel has everything you require. Below we offer our recommendations for different price levels.
