Dali old town was not as we might have expected 'a Chinese Disney', but more a smallish town, still genuinely old and lived in, rather than just visited by the locals. Lots of children, babies and families going to and fro on the street whereas here in Lijiang that doesn't seem to be the case.
The local Dali vegy/meat market was a …
Des nouvelles depuis Dali, à 4 heures de bus de Lijiang.
Le déplacement entre les deux villes était bien intéressant car ici les rizières sont omniprésentes. Et ça en est même un peu perturbant, car vous savez l'idée bien clichée qu'on se fait des gens qui travaillent avec leur bêche ou toujours penchés avec leur serpe dans le champs, eh …
The express bus from Kunming to Dali was good with lovely views along the way and it took around 5 hrs. There were several options for decent accomodations in Dali but I could only get wifi in the room at Tibetan Lodge so that is why I chose the Lodge (70 Y without breakfast).

There are two Dalis and we end up in the wrong one. Luckily the one we want is a fairly short bus ride away and so we follow the instructions given in the Lonely Planet to get there.

TravelPod Member ReviewsTibetan Lodge Dali
Nice, welcoming comfortable what more can you ask from a lodge. The Tibetan lodge was a welcome haven after the slow train from Kunming. The beds were comfortable, the room quite small and with two teenagers in the mezzanine above us we were snug. The staff were helpful, the food at their cafe good. All in all we liked them and would come back here.
