Xizhou Old Town, Zhoucheng Village, Erhai Lake and Jinsuo Island

Day 1Dali

In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Dali Ancient Town and taken to the meeting point. it’s a short 15 minute drive to Xizhou, where we will first visit the morning market. You will find a lively and maybe tidbit chaotic but charming market, where locals dressed in traditional minority clothing sell and buy local fruits, strange vegetables, freshly cut meat, piles of fragrant spices and anything else you can think of.

Our next destination is Zhoucheng Village, which is called the “Hometown of Ethnic Bai Tie-Dye Culture” and take a look around a traditional Tie-Dye workshop. The Bai people knot together true pieces of art that you would never have guessed to be tie-dyed. All tie-dye products are handmade with natural materials and dyes. 

After a lunch consisting of dishes you won’t find outside of this region, take a relaxing cruise on Erhai Lake towards Jinsuo Island – a small cormorant-bird fishing village. From there you can enjoy the majestic view of the green and clouded Cangshan Mountain Range looming over the Three Pagodas, as swarms of birds fly peacefully around you over the tranquil lake. After that, your guide will take you back to Dali Ancient Town. Spend your time in the old town having a drink in one of Dali’s many cozy little bars or warmly decorated coffeeshops or strolling around its lively main streets where local young artists sell all kinds of beautiful handicrafts. Your journey will end here and we wish you a great trip to wherever you are off to next!
