Unlike other cities of antiquity in China, Lijiang was built without grand walls and spacious avenues. In its stead are bridges, streams, and a maze of narrow streets which makes for a natural and harmonious layout. Today the city is recognized as a “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO, with its cobblestone streets, traditional houses, and unique shops enjoyed by travelers from the world over.
