We were hoping to find a village not yet reconstructed. Baisha, thankfully, was that. However, it is at the beginnings of becoming another Lijiang. Going now will give you an opportunity to see some old village life. We walked around the streets away from Baisha and were greeted with old homes and lovely local people. The streets of Baisha are small, lack tourists, have lots of cafes and small handicraft shops. We really enjoyed the quiet walk around. One wouldn't visit there to be entertained. It's a place for quiet.
The Naxi embroidery institute is a nice visit. One of the students spoke English well and was very kind and informative.
We found bus 6 in Lijiang to get to Baisha. However, due to road construction, the bus doesn't seem to follow is previous route. We ended up finding a bus stop on Shangri-la road heading out of town after the big roundabout.
