A link for you, Pat

I was just telling Pat about Naxi music. This morning I was relaxing and listening to some Naxi music from Lijiang , Yunnan in southwest China.  I have travelled to Yunnan four times so far and visited Lijiang twice.  I love the Naxi culture.  Lijiang Old Town is a Unesco World Heritage Centre and probably the most picturesque village I’ve ever seen.  Here is the Youtube link to my favourite Naxi song which I first heard many years ago in a pavilion in Black Dragon Pool Park in Lijiang.

I can thoroughly recommend a visit to Lijiang.  It is just a few hours bus ride from the state capital, Kunming, and there are daily flights too. There are lots of inexpensive hotels, guesthouses and homestays there. There are also hundreds of restaurants dotted along the banks of the incredibly picturesque canals. Here is a picture of Black Dragon Pool Park. It is really scenic.

  1. Thanks for sharing this link with me, Dai! I’m surprised this song is rather upbeat and it’s quite nice actually. If my dad was alive today, he would have appreciated it.(❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

    1. Hi Pat. We’ve worked like hell today and finally I’m going to relax and watch some TV, There are lots of Naxi songs like this and they’re huge hits with all the western and Chinese tourists who join in the dancing and make a mess of the steps. Have a nice evening, Pat.

      1. Good night, Dai! Errr…I mean good morning. It’s almost 1 am and way past my bedtime. ٩(๑•◡-๑)۶

  2. Reblogged this on New Bloggy Cat (NBC) and commented:
