Lijiang Old Town1(雲南麗江----水車廣場)Yunnan, CN
Yunnan

The world famous Old Town of Lijiang is located in Lijiang City. It is a UNESCO Heritage Site. The town has a history going back more than 800 years and was once a confluence for trade along the old tea horse road. The Lijiang old town is famous for its orderly system of waterways and bridges.The Old Town is a maze of winding cobblestone streets. It is extremely easy to get lost as there is no grid, but each turn takes one to some new interesting spot, and it's not hard to eventually find one's way out of the maze and back to familiar territory. 

 麗江古鎮被聯合國教科文組織列為世界遺產,它的歷史可追溯到800年前,曾經是茶馬古道的重要商鎮。鎮內水道緃橫,從民居門前流過,鎮中心為四方街,巷道從這裡輻射而出,走進巷道,很易迷路,但只要反向而行,很快便會走回四方街,重出生天。麗江現時已是雲南一個重要旅遊重鎮,每天傍晚,來自各方的遊客都會把古鎮填得滿滿,熱鬧非常。
