Never been to a Chinese ancient town before, and because I've heard Lijiang and Zhongdian are overran with tourists now, I thought we should try this still relatively less well known ancient town. Took a bus from Ya'an, which is about 40 minutes and cost 6Y, ended up stayed there for 3 days since we wanted to go to Bifengxia Panda center too and rather stayed here than in Ya'an. It's quite pretty, but can be very kitschy as well, full of hotels built in old Chinese style. At night this town center turned into loud noisy karaoke streets and sadly most of them could not sing, or should not be allowed to sing! Quite clean for Chinese standards, a lot of nice restaurants but not much to do at night.
