Under the blue sky and the natural environment, it is the beat time to appreciate the autumn landscape in Jiuzhaigou Valley regardless of its temperature and climate.

However, although September is the peak time to travel in Lijiang, you shouldn’t miss this place. Combined with business and peaceful ambience, you will have a relaxed and primitive enjoyment.

Clothing: You can take a T-shirt, sweater, coat, and sunscreen and rain gear. In Lijiang, especially in the rainy season, you should carry a coat with you. If you travel in the city in the summer, a sweater is not necessary but sunscreen is a must. Lijiang’s  elevation is higher than Dali. Thus, the ultraviolet rays are strong. Sometimes with sunscreen you will tan after a day outside in the sunlight.

Food: I think the food in Lijiang ancient city is not as delicious as that in Dali and Kunming. Food in the ancient city is diverse including, western restaurants, coffee and pizza shops. However, cold rice noodles and Lijiang stuffed buns are local specialities.

Accommodation: Similar to Dali, you should live in the ancient city. Do not worry about the vacancy of accommodation although the availability and price are dependent on location and the holidays. Of course, the hotel prices range from RMB30 to RMB120.

Transportation: Most people go to Lijiang after Dali as the fare and time is almost the same. Some will fly to Lijiang from Kunming. Lijiang Airport has served flights from Lijiang to Kunming, Xishuangbanna, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Guiyang, etc. It's only a 30 minute drive to the airport from the downtown.
