Situated beneath snow-capped mountains in the farthest reaches of China's Yunnan province, near the borders of Tibet, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, the historic town of Lijiang has changed little since Kublai Khan arrived in 1253. This lavishly illustrated guide explores the colourful history, picturesque pagodas and pavilions, tranquil lakes and graceful bridges of a Unesco World Heritage site that many believe to be the original Shangri-La.
