|Traditional Nakhi culture, housing, and (to lesser extent these days) people, line the interior of this quintessential Chinese ancient town. With an abundance of souvenir shops, restaurants, alleyways, bridges and canals, and the Jade Dragon Mountain in the back ground, there is plenty to stimulate the senses. However, whether this UNESCO world heritage site has in fact been spoilt by the number of tourists is up to the visitor to decide.|
