Travel to these places with friends during the National Day holiday
Lijiang is a popular place. Some people say it has serious commercial atmosphere, but the beauty of Lijiang deserved to be enjoyed if you taste it carefully. After visiting the ancient city, you could go to the nearby Tea Horse Ancient Road and enjoy the joy of horse riding, as well as go boating on Lashi Lake and stroll under the blue sky and white clouds. Surely, Lugu Lake can be the next destination. It is so wonderful when it is sunny with the image of the lake meets the blue sky and colorful boats float on the lake. When the travel is over, you can return from Xichang, and then you can visit Qionghai Lake and eat barbecue by brazier. It's so delicious!
