We did a little walk around this park because it was included in our tour, if I could do it again I'd rather have spent more time up by Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and the beautiful areas around there. Firstly, not everyone has to pay,...More

NOT Worth it!!! It costs 80 RMB ($12 USD) to get in. The park is really small, dirty, and all the buildings in general are not well preserved; also you can finish walking through it in 30 minutes. They let locals go in for free,...More

This is a relatively peaceful place to walk around. Certainly picturesque, but you’d be lucky to capture the shot at the top of this attraction summary. 80RMB to get in - but allows repeat visits for a month. If I had 24 hours in Lijiang,...More

The park itself is beautiful and well maintained. It’s beautiful to walk around in. But at ¥80pp it is probably the most overpriced thing you’ll do in China besides Starbucks. The park is mainly used by locals who enter for free, so you effectively pay...More

This park is typical of most parks in China; a place for the people to gather to dance, socialize, exercise, relax and take a stroll while admiring the beautiful view. This park is one of the most scenic highlights in my opinion of Yunnan Province,...More

Now, this is a must if you ever are in Lijiang. Lovely setting with the mountains as a background and a photo opportunity at every angle. You will need about 1/2 or even 3 hours to enjoy this park depending on your speed.

This is a loveky park with fantastic views of the mountains - stunning when the blossom is out and there is still snow on the mountain top. Lots and lots of local people dancing and taking exercise. Puts us Brits to shame!
