Why I Fell In Love With Old Town Dali

Dali really surprised me. I probably say that a lot but it did! It was so vibrant and there was such a youthful, almost hipster, vibe to Old Town Dali. There were shops tucked away in alleys, really hip and fun restaurants on every corner, not to mention a beautiful mountain backdrop and a gleaming lake in the distance! And it was almost shocking how English friendly this city was! Considering it’s not really on anyones radar as aΒ China destination they really accommodated foreigners. It almost felt like we stumbled upon aΒ secret when Aaron and I arrived.Β why I fell in love with Daliwhy I fell in love with Daliwhy I fell in love with Daliwhy I fell in love with Dali

why does my hand look so massive?

There’s cafes everywhere in Old Town as well as live bands playing! Try Fu Xing Street for some restaurants. There’s a vegetarian restaurant there called Lovely Lotus and they have a buffet πŸ™‚ There are a few reallyyyyyyyyyyy bad restaurants in Old Town that look really cute and fun but they literally only want your money and don’t even try when cooking. At one place Aaron got a French onion soup and I got “roasted root vegetables” and it was actually repulsive. His soup was warmed up milkΒ with cut up red onion in (I don’t even think it was cooked onion)Β and my vegetables were fried worm looking things that make me want to puke. Just be careful because you’re not going to get your money back!

At night you’ll hear an explosion of music mixed between Karaoke and Top 40 tunes. At one bar we got a cocktail and 6 beers came with it! They were only 2% alcohol but still, it was a nice touch!

If I had to tell you to choose between Lijiang and Dali I would choose Dali. Unless you’re going to the Tiger Leaping Gorge then hang out here for a few days. I feel bad for not exploring the area more Old Town Dali was so cool I didn’t want to leave! There’s also a Starbucks so if you’re a coffee fiend like me you’re salvation is here!
