    I came to Lijiang in November. At this time, the mainland has entered the winter, but Lijiang is still a beautiful spring. It is not hot or cold. It can be said to be the most comfortable season. Although Lijiang does not seem to have a strict off-season in the strict sense, no matter when it comes, there are quite a lot of people, but Lijiang at this time should be considered a relatively small number of tourists. The hotel is cheap, and there are many troubles in the ancient city of Dayan. In a quiet place, you can feel the Lijiang, which is not so commercial.

    “Jeddah opened the skylight, eat soup first, nothing to go to Shanghai, long vacation to visit Lijiang”, as one of the four major, Lijiang word of mouth is a bit bad. The problems of over-exploitation and commercialization are indeed serious, and the size of the scammers is also endless. Because it is too popular here, so of course everyone will be higher. But in any case, this is really a beautiful place, very suitable for living and playing. People who have never been there will always come once, and those who have been there will still think about coming again. In fact, it doesn’t matter whether it is installed or not. Lijiang is not only the ancient city of Dayan and Yulong Snow Mountain, but also the ancient town of Shuhe, Wuhu, Tiger Leaping Gorge, as well as Haba Snow Mountain, Baishui River, Lashihai, Heilongtan, Baisha Mural, Yangtze River. One bay, ninety-nine dragon pools, Baoshan Stone Town, if you have been there, you will know that many people have come to Lijiang.

    Of course, it is best not to visit the tour group, but to travel freely. The difference between the two is very big. Don’t talk about feelings when you have been to the tour group. Just like you have never been to, at most, you are here. It is very convenient to buy air tickets, book hotels, search for information and do Raiders online. Many popular scenic spots are still trying to avoid the most popular seasons such as holidays, so let’s take a good look at it, there will definitely be a different feeling. In fact, I followed the tour group to Lijiang twice. I have been driving several times. I can say that every time I come to have different feelings, every time I come to have new discoveries, maybe I will come back next time, who will make this a traffic. The way to do it. What’s more, I think that the beauty of Lijiang, there are still many undiscovered, there are many places we have not been to.

    To be honest, when I visit the ancient city during the day, I don’t like to visit this commercial street. It is completely the feeling of the small commodity market. I feel that many things are sold in the same way, and there are too many tourists. The heart that squeezes in and out is very impetuous. But at night it is totally different. Many shops with special features will attract you to go in and see. Sometimes, when the heart calms down, the beauty will begin to emerge.
