Lijiang

Lijiang is a prefecture-level city in the northwest of Yunnan province, People's Republic of China. With a history of over 800 years, the ancient town of Lijiang offers a unique step back in time. One unique aspect of Lijiang is that the majority of its residents are of the Naxi Dongba Ethnic Minority Group and the architecture, and layout of the town reflects their cultures and traditions. Visitors to the city can witness the minority group’s music and cultures firsthand. Located near Lijiang is the Tiger Leaping Gorge, and the stunning Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.  
 
The history of Lijiang city started as early as the late Song Dynasty. It is built where the Jade River divides into three and its streams form the canals and waterways which flow along the old town streets. Lijiang became known in the west through a book written by an American commissioner who traveled in and out of Yunnan province in late 19th century. Particularly after China started to admit foreign tourists in the 1980s, Lijiang began to attract visitors. To fulfill their needs, local people started restaurants and cafes. It was the earthquake in 1996 that brought Lijiang to the world's attention. Chinese people also long for the lifestyle and the excellent environment in Lijiang and started pouring in. This started the new era of Lijiang.
