There are many available Dali tours but our experience will help pair you with the right Dali hotels and English speaking guides.

Dali is a mainly Bai minority ancient town located on the shores of Er Hai lake. It's relatively cool year-round temperatres, tasty local dishes and breathtaking scenery make it a favorite of Chinese and international travelers. Dali has a boisterous Old Town and market, as well as the more modern adjacent city of Xia Guan. Dali is just two hours south of Shaxi Old Theatre Inn.

For the best of Dali hotels, we enthusiastically recommend the Linden Centre. Set in the village of Xi Zhou, about 30 minutes from Dali Town, the Centre offers the most comfortable accommodation of Dali hotels in a restored 19th Century courtyard. The Centre is run by Jeanee and Brian Linden, American expatriates who oversaw the restoration of the courtyard. It is one of the best examples of Dali vernacular courtyard architecture with many art installations around the property from the Linden's private collection. The Lindens run wonderful Dali tours ranging from antique shopping, craft making, architecture and local food.

For English language guides we recommend Adam at Climb Dali and his team of local people. They are expert in rock climbing and hiking Dali tours.

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.
