Located within 300 meters to one of the most famous old towns in rural China, Daliwuzi is ideal for people who want to explore Dali and beyond with families and friends in home-to-home comfort. Built in the traditional local stone and wood style, it has a wealth of character including exposed stone walls, wooden floors, beams and wooden vaulted ceilings. It has been restored to a family vacation house, maintaining much of its original features, but with the comfort of modern facilities. Dali Wuzi consists of two independent buildings plus an outdoor covered dining area, surrounding a coutyard in the local fashion. The main building contains three bedrooms, one TV/family room (can be converted to a bedroom) and two bathrooms split over two floors. The other separate building was originally a stone hovel which is now converted into an open-plan kitchen and sitting room.

The Yunnan region
Yúnnán has some of the most magical and diverse scenery in all of China. There are endless trekking opportunities in the south's tropical rainforests, and in the north, snow-capped Tibetan peaks hide dozens of tiny villages and temples rarely visited by tourists.
Yúnnán is also home to a third of all China's ethnic minorities (nearly 50% of the province is non-Han) and despite the best government efforts, numerous pockets of the province have successfully resisted Han influence and exhibit strong local identities.

Dali, the original funky banana-pancake backpacker hang-out in Yunnan, was once the place to chill, with its stunning location sandwiched between mountains and Erhai Lake. Dali lies on the western edge of Erhai Lake at an altitude of 1900m, with a backdrop of the imposing 4000m-tall Cang Shan (Green Mountains). For much of the five centuries in which Yunnan governed its own affairs, Dali was the centre of operations, and the old city retains a historical atmosphere that is hard to come by in other parts of China. Loafing here for a couple of weeks was an essential Yunnan experience.
Today, though, Dali routinely gets bashed for being - you guessed it - too "touristy". Then again, this sniffy attitude has resulted in fewer Westerners heading here, so you won't be as taken for granted as in years past. Forget the whingers, for there are fascinating possibilities for exploring and getting to know the region's Bai culture, just get on a bike and get out of town.

"Heavenly - a taste of the good life in old China"
The moment we walked into Dali Wuzi, we fell in love. Dali Wuzi is a thoughtfully restored traditional wooden courtyard house, with many lovely original details throughout. We loved the atmosphere of old world charm with wooden beams and red lanterns. It also had all the modcons and amenities, including luxurious bathrooms, and a lovely, well-equipped kitchen plus high-speed internet and much more. The central courtyard featured a plum tree in bloom, comfortable lounge chairs to recline and watch the clouds and enjoy the silence. The four of us were so comfortable here that we often didn't even really feel like stepping out. Dali Wuzi is just five minutes walk from the southern gate of the ancient town, and even closer to a number of good, local restaurants. We saw local Bai minority culture by following a group of Bai women to a nearby fire temple. We also went to a local market which takes place every month on the Western Gate of the ancient town. There are many places worth visiting in and around Dali including the ancient town of Xizhou. Dali Wuzi is a heaven and a base to explore the region. Taxi is really easy to get and the most important thing is that Joe will be there for you whenever you need help or advice. Highly recommended!
