From Kunming, I took a night train to Dali, a small historic town with a beautiful cobbled streeted old town. It was a very relaxed place, where I spent three days, that was easy to wander around and make a couple of trips out of the town to lakes & mountains. Even though the town has a lot of tourists, the vast majority of them were Chinese, so it somehow didn't feel so touristy, except for one or two streets.

Lijiang was not completely dissimilar to Dali, in having an old town. It did attract far more (Chinese) tourists that pretty much took over the town. Nonetheless, Lijiang still had a nice feel to it & again I enjoyed just strolling around its streets.
