KunMing Trip 22.12.2014 Part 2

Xizhou Village is one of the Bai ethnic minority villages around the Erhai Lake and has historic prominence with a cluster of over 100 protected buildings.

The beautiful Erhai Lake is shaped like an ear, hence its name, which means ear shaped sea in Chinese.

Using cormorants to catch fish on Erhai Lake was once a prosperous tradition in Shuanglang.

The last stop of the day is the primitive and tranquil Dali Old Town, where you will see limpid streams passing through the town and local people wearing their ethnic costumes. A street that goes through the South City Gate to the North City Gate is now a prosperous market street, selling marble, tie-dyeing and other souvenirs.
