Paying further walking, you will come to Mu Fu Mansion which was the mansion of the local Mu Chieftain (the headmen under the system of appointing national minority hereditary in ancient China). Its architectural style indicates a fusion of the features of Central Plains in the Ming Dynasty, the local Bai Minority, and the Naxi Minority.

After the cultural exploration in Mu Fu Mansion, you are going to “date” with those lovely alleys winding through the local dwellings and immerse yourself into the peaceful Lijiang Ancient Town. Strolling on the stone-paved street, your eyes will be dazzled by an array of fancy goods at those hawking stalls.
After lunch, we will drive to Shuhe Ancient Town. When you walk around Shuhe Ancient Town, you will feel relaxed. People there just slow down the pace of life so you will experience the authentic countryside life here. There are ancient houses to enjoy and winding streets to explore.
