We took the number 6 bus from the new area of town outside of the north most square for a trip to this lovely town . The trip there was very interesting as we were able to get away from the tourists and enjoy the local flavor of the area. Baisha sits on the large plain about 20 minutes outside... More

Baisha is still real ! Not sophisticated as LiJiang Dayan. Easy access from Shuhe and great mountain view from some roof top terraces. There is a small cafe on the main street that serves great "Yunnan Arabica Coffee" ( the name is on the board) and dumplings, it has a roof terrace and the owners speak good english.

The Baisha Ancient town is still authentic and not modernized compared with the other two ancient towns. We stopped here for lunch on our tour. There are shops and restaurants but not to the degree of over built. Very educational town..

Baisha is a must and certainly the most authentic village of the three Unesco villages. It is the oldest one and you can feel it straight away on arrival. Beautiful and stunning! Don't miss the Embroidery School of Mu's Family at the entrance of the village, beautiful works.

Baisha is well worth a visit when traveling in this region. Beautiful architecture and the murals are also worth a visit.

Baisha village was the earliest settlement for the Chinese Naxi minority group and the village retains a lot of its authentic charm with Naxi women wearing traditional outfits and lots of old traditional houses. The village consists one or two eating places, a few shops and lots of typical Naxi houses- an interesting place.

Our favourite ancient town so far. Only problem here is the road and drainage works which has been ongoing for half a year and which have churned up a lot of dust in this town. There are so many quaint cafes and shops selling souvenirs and artifacts. We visited Dr Ho while we were here. He was happy to speak... More

We came here on the way to the airport from Shangri-la and spent a good 3 hours or so. Within quick driving (or bus #6) distance is the small but great monastery at the foot of the mountain (beautiful bc it is much more colorfully-painted than what you usually see, partly bc it is a bit newer). Inside the town... More

Baisha is about half hour drive from Lijiang. It is clear that the town has not yet been changed by the massive tourist group. But the cafes and shops in bilingual signs also show that it is no longer such a pure place. We had a very good lunch in the Sand restaurant. We visited also the embroid school. It... More

Located less than hour's drive from Lijiang, this little old town is definitely worth a visit. Made up of just a couple of streets and minus the tourist traps, it is easy and relaxing to explore. We visited in the morning as the local residents were starting to hawk their foods and fresh produce in the market square. We bought... More
