The Essence of Shuhe Ancient Town in Yunnan



Just four kilometers northwest of the fully packed tourist town Lijiang in southwest China's Yunnan Province, Shuhe Ancient Town is a place where visitors seek the traditional way of local life. Once an essential stop along the ancient Tea Horse Road, Shuhe has displayed its commercial spirit by opening clusters of shops and bars catering to tourists.

With mild weather year-round, Shuhe Ancient Town produces a rich variety of fruits.

An outdoor coffeehouse near a body of still and clear water enhances the laid-back lifestyle of Shuhe Ancient Town.
