Dali 大理, YunNan province – Travelogue

A fascinating, hour plus documentary by CCTV's Travelogue (from the English language CCTV9 channel).

Dali is a four and a half hours drive from KunMing, the provincial capital of YunNan in south China, or forty minutes by air. By rail it is also connected to nearby LiJiang.

We haven't posted a Travelogue for a couple of years, but are very happy to say that it is back to its best - intelligent presenter and beautiful cinematography. Highly recommended.

Inhabited predominantly by the Bai and Yi ethnic groups.
