Tips for you

  • The food is pretty spicy here, so if you or your children don't like spicy, make sure to ask for "no spicy".
  • Nearly all restaurants in Yunnan, payment are cash only; make sure bring cash rather than credit card.
    What to bring
  • This street is quiet in the morning, getting busier by lunch time and can be cozy and crowded by night.
  • Cafes and restaurants in Lijiang and other area of China are allowed to remain open only till 11pm. So when in Lijiang remember to finish your dinner by that time.
  • Local specialties are really cheap, just about RMB3 – 5RMB.
    Ticket and Pricing
  • If it is authentic Naxi cuisine that you want to sample, then you should try some of the tasty snacks that can be bought from street stalls. Do try “Jidou Liangfen”, a local favorite which is plain old chick peas transformed into a jelly-like dish. For dessert try Bingfenliangxiao or end your meal with butter tea.

Shuhe cuisine street, at a distance of Shuhe place near the South Gate entrance, about 35 minutes to walk. Little food court entrance, but inside they do have a world. Both sides of the road is full of restaurants, there are a variety of flavors. Lijiang or more local specialties, such as hot pot ribs, salmon and more. Lavish consumption, still acceptable. I ordered a fried rice, ¥20, is not very good
