Dali Tour

Dali locationDali is a popular tourist destination located in Yunnan Province, the city is known for its natural scenery and historical and cultural heritage. In 109 BC, Emperor Wudi (156-87 BC, reigned 140-87 BC) of the Han Dynasty began to assert the central government's power here by establishing Yeyu County. From the 8th to 13th century, Dali was the capital of the Nanzhao and Dali kingdoms. Thus it became the political, economic, and cultural center of Yunnan. At that time it was a very important gateway for promoting cultural and trade relations between China and Southeast Asian countries. In the Travel Notes by the Italian famous traveller Marco Polo (c. 1254-1324 ) and the great Chinese traveler Xu Xiake (1586-1641), tourists can find detailed descriptions about Dali. The existing ruins of Nanzhao Kingdom's Taihe City, the Dehua Tablet, the Three Pagodas of Chongsheng Temple, and Tablet Commemorating Kublai Khan's Conquest of Yunnan are the witnesses of the ancient city. Dali is beautiful and charming with the lofty Mount Cangshan as its magnificent decorative screen and the Crystal Erhai Lake a vast mirror. Numerous historic and scenic spots are scattered about the green mountains and around the lake. Each of it is connected with historical events or beautiful legends.

Dali is a place inhabited most by Bai people. Bai nationality's architecture is characterized with its simple and classic elegance as well as delicate carvings. Most houses have courtyards with natural running water and bonsai (the art of growing dwarfed, ornamentally shaped trees or shrubs in small, shallow pots) on display. The Bai women dress themselves in colorful and well-matched costumes. Various traditional festivals are celebrated each year with rich and exciting activities.
