      Cheaper than the Jade Emu and Jade Roo. But still clean and comfortable. Its right next to the Jade roo so you can use their bar as they dont have one yet. Great staff. Seriously the most helpful people you can meet. read my blog on getting the isreali's down the mountain. Olivia and the staff were priceless.

      The Lily Pad Inn was an amazing hostel. The minute we arrived we felt so comfortable and relaxed. The staff there is amazing - so sweet and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and it felt as if you were staying at an old friend's home. The food was also amazing. I've lived in China for two years and I had two of the best dishes I've eaten at this hostel. I should also mention that the cost was so affordable. Thanks for a great stay!

      ... I had rented it from that morning. That night I got a stone oven Pizza as I couldn't face Chinese. Even the thought of lifting chopsticks made me feel even more tired. All in all the worst day of my trip so far.

      The next day I planned my exit from Dali as having not really met many travellers, not finding loads to do inside and out of the persistent rain and having completed the cycle ride from he'll in only 11 hours I had just about enough. Typically once the ticket was booked ...

      ... pregnant; we couldn't speak the same language, but still somehow managed to communicate well. I think she lived nearby, but was around at the guest house almost every day. We seem to spend a lot of time just sat together, and most nights she would find her way to my bed. I wish I could have taken her with me when I left, but we both knew that wasn't possible. She was the hostel cat, after all ;) My time in Dali wasn't all coffee and contentment, though. I ...
