Exploring – A Dali hotel

27 Nov

Our hotel in Dali was very special, a converted ancient house that had been transformed into a hotel.  It was located in the center of the old town on the acclaimed “Foreigner’s Street”, right in the middle of the small town hustle and bustle.  From the photos, you can see the traditional structure with a large courtyard in the center and then multiple levels of open air walkways that led to rooms surrounding the courtyard.  There were water features, comfortable chairs and fresh flowers all over, with beautiful views of the mountains.

Because now is the low season, the streets of the town and the hotel both were uncrowded and the price for such a room was remarkably reasonable – 215 RMB for one night (about $40 USD).  I can see why people say Yunnan is a little piece of heaven.

What’s the favorite hotel you’ve lived in?
