The old town of Dali is bigger and easier to walk around in than Lijang. Everywhere good places to have a drink or eat some local food. It is a enjoyable place to walk around and smell the culture.

This one of many streets in Dali old town selling food, drinks, gifts etc. As with similar streets we visited during our time in China it is best explored at night time when it is much prettier.

Good for shopping for food or buying gifts. It took me about 2 hours to cover and then I had little meal.
