In Dali, 5000 years of Chinese culture and modern life-style blend into one of the most fascinating travel experiences in the world.
Situated on the crossroads of many bygone civilizations, on a fertile plateau in the Southwest of China’s Yunnan Province, Dali is praised by Marco Polo as “the magic land beyond the clouds; an idyllic hideaway where life approaches perfection.”
However, Dali has not been untouched – Genghis Khan and his Mongol warriors swept down the Silk and Tea Roads, passing through Dali as they conquered much of the known world. Centuries later, Dali was a base along the famous Burma Road and a home to the Flying Tigers of WWII (segment in film).
Today Dali retains its tradition and history, but is infused with the wonders of the 21st Century. Join Mysterious China and discover Dali.
