Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

From the subtropical lowlands in the south up to glacier-capped mountains in the north, Yunnan is a province of extremes. The climate varies so much across this vast and diverse area, that it has given rise to an ancient Chinese saying: “You can enjoy all four seasons on the same mountain, with each just a few miles from the next”. Generally speaking, most of Yunnan province is mild in winter and cool in summer, with large variances in temperature occurring across the day. Mornings can start with a wintery chill, and warm up to 25°C by lunchtime. Spring and Autumn are mild and pleasant and the best times to visit Yunnan, despite May being the rainiest month of the year. For snow-capped mountains and dramatic alpine scenes, the winter months of November to January can be spectacular.

Description

Conveniently located in the quaint Shuhe Ancient Street, Lijiang Back and Forward Boutique Hotel is a unique courtyard-styled boutique inn blending classic Naxi elements with comfortable, modern amenities.

Renovated as a modern inn with respect to its original wood structure and Naxi courtyard style, Lijiang Back and Forward Boutique Hotel has a distinction to be one of the few boutique inns under the protection of Lijiang heritage authorities. Lush protected trees and beautiful landscaping surrounds the back side of the boutique inn.

Opened in 2018, each of the 11 rooms are fitted with LCD television, in-room WiFi and separate bathroom with hair dryer and 24-hour hot water. Both the rooms and public areas are designed with warm natural colours and light-stoned marble to lend itself a minimalistic leaning, while the multi-layered wooden screening allows for natural light to create striking light and shadow effects throughout the property.

The hotel's in-house restaraunt serves both Chinese and western cuisine.
