This is probably one of the last "tourist attractions" left in the Old Town (the other is the old market). We couldn't find any good English speaking guides so I suppose China is still catering for its Domestic tourism and sees little value for the foreigners. What a shame. The buildings in this Mufu Place are relatively well maintained. The view from the top is fantastic.

Do not miss this well looked after and beautiful mansion when visiting Lijang. And do cross the bridge to the Jade Garden for a pleasant finish to your visit.

This is a newly built replica of an old palace like building that tries to make you pay at every corner. You need to be away that it is only built to reinforce the 'disney world' experience to encourage tourist to spend money. I was disappointed that the building quality was low. The view from the top was good and there are many places to relax and get away from the crowds...but remember, it is not an ancient building.

This is definitely worth a visit. There were not hoards of tourists there, as you had to pay an entrance fee, but it made for better photos! The pavilions are on a slope and when you get to the top, there is a stunning vista over the old city. There are lots of different areas of the complex and you could easily spend several hours there wandering around and taking it all in. There are English signs which explain the purpose of each rooms, so you can get a sense of how the family lived. You can also pay RMB20 to have your photo taken in the national costume, which we did, and was quite fun. The photographer was very professional and put us in several different poses and backgrounds and we were able to choose one photo from the 10 or so that he took. Upon leaving the complex, you also get a free keyring with a photo of you taken in front of the first pavilion.
The only downside was occasionally we would run into a big group of tourists with their tour guide speaking into a microphone, so the noise shattered the otherwise tranquil experience.
