Old Tree Cafe

The first western style cafe in Shaxi

The Old Tree Cafe is run by Auntie Chang and Uncle Zheng, a retied couple originally from Shandong China. They came to Shaxi and established the Old Tree in 2005, true restaurant pioneers in Shaxi! Their location coulldn't be better for those who want to enjoy the activities around Sideng Square. The Old Tree is in a corner of the square just adjacent to the Baoxing Temple with two outdoor tables. Food is simple and tasty; some western favorites and Chinese stir fry with cold Beer Lao dark lager to wash it down. Yum!

Welcome to Shaxi Yunnan China - a cultural treasure of the ancient Tea Horse Road

Located halfway from Lijiang to Dali, Shaxi Yunnan is home to a beautifully preserved traditional way of life that offers a glimpse into a forgotten era. Shaxi has been protected from mass tourism due to its relative distance from popular destinations in Yunnan. But a new highway has made the driving distance from Dali to Shaxi or Lijiang just 90 minutes. The local government, keen to protect Shaxi's unique cultural heritage, is working with a conservation team that aims to create a sustainable travel strategy for the valley, encouraging activities that provide ownership opportunities for local families.
