1. Tour Itinerary
Our guide meet you from your hotel around 09:00 in the morning. Tour
to Xizhou Village, visit the houses of local
residents which are characterized by a traditional
Chinese rectangular courtyard. You will
be greeted with the genuine tea ceremony
of the Bai People and treated to a song
& dance performance by them.
After lunch, you
will drop in on some local farming families
and be guided to see the local Bai people's
typical way of life by taking a visit to
the pretty Fishing Village of Shuanglang.
Stroll along Erhai Lake for a while. Then
visit local Indigo Workshop where you wiil
see Tie-dyeing Cloth with Wax (a technology
of printing flower patterns on cloth). In
the afternoon, pay a visit to the Three
Pagodas. Drive back to Dali. Enjoy a leisure
stroll in Dali Old Town in the evening.
Located about 18 kilometers north of Dali, Xizhou is a typical commercial center of Bai Ethnic Nationality. Inside the village, there are some traditional Bai architectures. It was a military stronghold during the Nanzhao Kingdom, surrounded by rice paddies and Cangshan Mountain. Travelers can enjoy decorative architectures, lovely ethical clothes and wonderful handicrafts there.
Lake: Covering an area of 251 square
kilometers, it is one of the seven biggest
fresh water lakes in China and the second
largest lake in Yunnan. The peaks of Cangshan
Mountain are often mirrored in the lake,
making majestic scenery. It would be a great
pity if people traveling to Dali without
going for a boat ride in the lake.
people: The Bai people have a long history
and well-developed culture. 80% of the population
of 1.39 million live in the Dali Bai Autonomous
Prefecture around the Erhai Lake with exquisite
scenery. The Bai people have their own spoden
language but do not have a written one.
Pagodas: These pagodas are located between
Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake, about
1.5 kilometers northwest from the ancient
city of Dali. They were built in the Five
Dynasties (907-960AD). In the time of Nanzhao
and Dali Kingdoms, Chongsheng Monastery
was the largest monastery in this area and
the Three Pagodas were only a part of it.
The pagodas were built because of two main
reasons. Firstly, they were holy structures
that invoked the Buddha's protection against
the frequent disasters of floods and earthquakes.
Secondly, the pagodas were used as a storehouse
for scriptures and precious objects.
