Situated on a fertile plain between the Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake, Dali was the capital of Yunnan for five centuries when the city governed its own affairs. Now, as a tourist hotspot of Southwest China, it is renowned for its peaceful scenery and the colorful Bai ethnic culture that dominates there.
With the combination of the Three Pagodas, the Chongsheng Temple, the ancient city of Dali, the huge beautiful Erhai Lake, and the magnificent Cangshan Mountain, the whole area of Dali is just magnificently stunning. Pictures cannot describe the feeling of awe unless one gets standing on the grounds.
Dali, with the fame as a backpacker’s heaven, is one of the most popular spots for travelers and a perfect place to relax. Travelers visit Dali Old Town for its traditional architecture, minority cultures, and simply to experience the comfort life in a quiet town.
There is a fascinating possibility for exploring and getting to know the region’s Bai culture. The Bai women in red velvet vests, blue aprons, and flowery headdresses add an enchanting scene to the picturesque Dali.
