Day 9 (29.11.2007)


Today in the morning I went from Dali to the city Lijiang, which is 130 km away from Dali, by bus. Lijiang is another beautiful South Chinese small town with a fascinating Old Town. Lijiang is very famous for the ethnic minority of the Naxi and their script. This script consists of pictographs and so it belongs to the Hieroglyphic scripts. It is the only Hieroglyphic script in the world which is still used. Lijiang is located on an elevation of about 2400 m. First I visited the Black Dragon Pool Park. This park is beautiful and very picturesque. Together with the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (up to 5596 m high) in the background the views are fascinating. Afterwards I went to the Old Town, which is also beautiful. Here one can find typical South Chinese houses with alleys and canals between them. Because of all these reasons Lijiang and Dali are very worth seeing places. In many places in Lijiang one can find inscriptions written in the Naxi Script. On the next day (30.11.2007), over Kunming, I took a flight to Beijing.
