In the morning, we took off early to 大理崇圣寺三塔. This is a good choice as the visitors are few and you can really enjoy the large temple space. According to the guide, the temple ground had the best feng-shui location as it has its back supported by the mountain (苍山) and overseeing the "sea" 洱海. The temple ground is so big that the distant from front to end is about 5km.

After that, we had took another walk in the 大理蝴蝶泉. After the walk in 崇圣寺三塔, 蝴蝶泉 pale in comparison.

Drove up to Lijiang. By then its already evening. Check in to a hotel at the southern edge of 丽江古城. Have a tour around the night scene of the old city. You can find almost everything in the city. However, I find that it is a bit too commercialized that it loses some of its "olden" feeling.
