The old part of Lijiang is cobblestones, narrow lanes , canals aand flowers. A smorgasbord of shops, inns, places to eat or just sit and watch the world go by.
The entrance to the old town ….yes a national holiday ….people everywhere!
A profusion of pots filled with colour line the canals the streets, the fronts of shops and eateries.
Photo shoot – gorgeous women in local traditional dress….I think this is Bai.
Fancy a bite to eat??
Or a cup of tea?
Shops full of tea and not a tea bag to be seen!!
Or a tamarind lollie?
A fascinating place to get lost in, find a ‘good cup of coffee’ and to marvel at the buildings, the flowers , the shopping and of course the people.
