Feel of the property is one of quiet seclusion and private villas further enhance guests privacy. Yet, the property is just a few blocks away from one of the smaller yet rather more upscale and less touristy cluster of ancient town neighborhood...There you can find excellent

If you'd like to stay from the touristy old town of Dayan - This is definitely one of the top choices within the city. To be fair I haven't tried out Amandayan yet so I'm not in a position to compare which is better. While the room interior/design is dated and definitely shows

Hi David, We went to Lijiang last month and find it bit chilly to stay out after sunset. We had our usual dinner at the restaurant trying out the local Yunnan and Naxi delicacies. Banyan Tree served a fine course of dinner and you could also try the hot pot in this season. I did not try the moonlight pagoda dinner then. You may want to bring some warm clothing to put on in the mornings and evenings. Hope I've answered your questions. Cheers!
