Free admission

One of the most picturesque towns in the vicinity of Dali, as well as one of the best places to see traditional Bai architecture, is the town of Xizhou. Formerly a military stronghold of the Nanzhou Kingdom, Xizhou began to flourish during the first half of the twentieth century when a group of over 100 wealthy nationalist families relocated there, calling themselves the Xizhou Chamber of Commerce.

While much of Dali’s traditional Bai architecture has been “updated” to suit the tastes of modern Chinese travelers, Xizhou remains relatively untouched — it’s home to the largest collection of Bai residential houses in China, over a hundred of which are considered registered cultural relics.

Most visitors come to Xizhou on a day trip from Dali, but those who choose to stay overnight can sleep in a Bai-style courtyard home, as several have been converted into guest houses.

TRIP TO YUNNAN ESSENTIAL: In the Land of Eternal Spring 10 days ONLY DRIVER

TRIP TO YUNNAN ESSENTIAL: In the Land of Eternal Spring 10 days ONLY DRIVER

Yunnan is one of the richest, most varied and interesting provinces in China. It is home to the greatest geographic diversity in the country. Its spectacular scenery goes from, to the South, the jungles on the borders with Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, to later give way to infinite hills of Puer tea plantations and stepped rice terraces; and to the north it ascends through the valleys traced by the Red, Mekong, Salween and Yangtze rivers to high mountains of perpetual snow, glaciers and peaks that exceed 6000m in the Himalayan foothills. Known as the region of the "Eternal Spring", this paradise was chosen by 25 ethnic groups, of the 56 existing in China, to establish their civilizations. A trip through this territory is a colorful mosaic of culture, languages, architecture, religions, gastronomy, picturesque costumes, music and innumerable local traditions.
