Dali Travel Tips


Dali was the political, economical and cultural center for 500 years dated back to the Tang and Song Dynasties. The beautiful scenery, varied traditions and the culture of minority nationalities make Dali a well-known place of interest.


The 2 "Dalis"- Dali City, officially known as "Xiaguan", is where most traffics pull in.The Dali known as a backpackers paradise with cheap beer, music and guesthouses is another 12km away from Xiaguan. Locals like to call that area "the ancient town" or Dali Gucheng.Visitors Usually arrive at Xiaguan first and then move on to the real Dali.


Safety - Xiaguan has lots of immigrant workers who sometimes create minor crime problems in the city. These problems are most common in the southern areas of Xiaguan. The center of Xiaguan is as safe as most Chinese cities, but not recommend wander in the southern suburbs at night.
