This spectacular water town serves as one of the major tourist destinations in Yunnan province. The old town is best preserved ancient town in China and is listed in the World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

The city is inhabited by Naxi ethnic minority, which are famous by strong matriarchial line, agricultural activities and pictogram writing (which is active till nowadays).

Lijiang is also a destination point to the famous Tiger Leaping Gorge track, Lugu lake and Jade Dragon Snow mountain.

Landing there, compare the prices of hostels and various hotels (you might be surprised, especially in low season). Spend a few days relaxing, shopping pu’er tea and clothes, eating specialties of the local cuisine and please don’t forget to visit “Bookbar” (also called “Petite Lijiang” cafe) where you will have a rare chance to see the real art-house DVD movies from all over the world (including Chinese movies of course).

    I love the slight blurs on your shots... It happens to me when I'm walking with a camera on my chest, and has I'm warm, it makes condensation on the lens... Is it the same for you ? Anyway, I love this effect !

    @stouf: can't tell for now what was it exactly (but I do understand you). I was with those lenses on me for a long time - some had scratches or a bit dust maybe... :)
