We took a domestic flight from Kunming to Dali (大理). The majority of the people in Dali are from 白族.

Upon reaching, we had lunch at a local resident place for some local dishes. A lot of the local people had set up eating house for tourists. We then took a cruise to tour the Dali inland "sea" ( 洱海). As you had guessed, it is a fresh water "sea" and the water comes from the neighboring mountain ranges. It used to be a source of income (fishing) in the olden days, but it is more of an attraction now.

After that we took a walk in the olden city of Dali (大理古城). Dali is famous for good quality silver (975, 999 and 100) and Dali stone. However, you have to buy from reputable shop to ensure authenticity. Wearing silver is suppose to purge "poison" from you body.
