Editorial Reviews

Lijiang Known as the Venice of the Far East, Lijiang is an historic old Chinese town in the northwest province of Yunnan. It was the centre of the Naxi, a Tibetan-Tobirmanic nation that had an impressive and unique culture. Dayan, Lijiang's old town, contains an intriguing variety of canals and waterways. It developed at the beginning of the 12th century, during the Late Song epoch.The picturesque centre of the old town of Dayan is an architectural jewel. Numerous streams and three rivers flow through the historic part of the town and there are several beautiful stone bridges that date back to the time of both the Ming and Qing dynasties.For over 470 wonderful years of the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties each of the Naxi rulers came from the Mu family and for more than twenty-two generations life in and around Lijiang was led by this family until in 1723 the Qing Dynasty appointed a new government, thus the Mu era came to an end.

1.0 out of 5 stars very useless DVD August 25, 2008
By Ghango
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just got this DVD since we plan to go to LiJiang in Oct and there are not many DVDs for LiJiang.

Please be aware this DVD is only 10 minutes long. I feel it is such a rip off. Not so much useful information in there. Even include quite a few still pictures of the old town.
