A relaxing stay at Banyan tree Lijiang

Banyan tree Lijiang is a lovely resort close to Shuhe old town. The architecture of the resort has an ancient look with Jade dragon snow mountain as their backdrop. Convenient location to visit Lijiang’s attraction. After a day’s touring around, you can soak in their soothing spa to iron away the aching muscles. Me and my daughter had a lovely time staying there.

a gem for escaping the normal life

excellent place to escape the mundane world for romance, relaxation and inner peace. a gem next to the historical old town, easy access to the snow mountain, and excellent service and amenities. but food quality can be improved, don't have a good wine collections or cocktails.
