This is a loveky park with fantastic views of the mountains - stunning when the blossom is out and there is still snow on the mountain top. Lots and lots of local people dancing and taking exercise. Puts us Brits to shame!

A really nice park within the old city which is a unesco area. Send 2-3 hours here and enjoy the views of Snow mountain, ancient trees rivers and lakes.

The crystal clear spring waters at the Black Dragon Pool never runs dry even during the worst droughts. It has been said that the waters have curative powers but I’d rather stay dry and enjoy the picturesque view.

Green Dragon Mountain range is reflected in the large lake. Great place to stroll and see local ethnic groups dance. Trees were just blooming when we were there inMar h. It will be spectacular later in the year.

Lovely park in Lijiang with the lake, temples, mountain views and flowering trees. Iconic photographing spot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (on the cover of our DK Eyewitness Guide book).

We spent around an hour walking around this park. It was very beautiful and it wasn’t too busy when we visited. You have to pay to enter the park but it’s worth it! It’s a short walk from the ancient town. Make sure to visit...More
