Introducing Dali

With its historic streets and soaring pagodas, Dali Ancient Town – part of the Dali City area – is a picture-perfect setting for a luxury break. People come here to explore centuries-old temples and tranquil mountain scenery, or to tee-off on some of China’s best golf courses. Whatever you have in mind, it’s all within easy reach from your boutique hotel. 

Things to do

Dali is a must-visit for keen golfers of every handicap. Home to the Canghai Golf International Community, hone your swing on undulating courses with plenty of tree-lined and open-parkland fairways, surrounded by scenic mountain views.

Dali Ancient Town contains plenty of well-preserved buildings, as well as some fascinating museums. Some of the historic city wall still stands, as do three of its four ancient entrance gates. Within the old town centre you can see traditional Bai folk houses. But the main draw is the Three Pagodas Temple, with its trio of towers standing against a backdrop of the Cangshan mountain.

Cangshan, the tallest peak of the Yunling mountains, stands just to the west of Dali. The landscape of valleys and slopes threaded with brooks has been a common subject for local painters for centuries. The myriad mountain streams all flow down to Erhai lake, which is the second largest highland lake in China.

Top Tip from SLH

Visit Erhai lake in spring to see it surrounded by wildflowers – a view known as one of the Four Famous Dali Landscapes
