16/41.- Lijiang, old town, souvenir shops at night


Most souvenir shops open every day, and stay open till late in the evening. Typical souvenirs from Lijiang are Naxi and Tibetan clothes, local handicrafts, jewels and paper lanterns. Prices can be negotiated. Note that not all sellers speak English. A Chinese phrase book will be handy when dealing with them!

Tourist hotels and restaurants have signs both in English and Chinese. Staff usually speak English too. In some small restaurants the menu will be only in Chinese, though. Your Chinese-English phrase book will be useful there too.
