Lijiang is an ancient city in China . It is located in the west Chinese province of Yunnan, on the Yunnan-Guizhou plateau, at an altitude of 2400 m. Lijiang was founded in the 13th century AD. It was an important commercial and strategic centre of the whole area. Lijiang lies on the river system of the Jade river, that is why there are more than 354 bridges over it. The beautiful environment of the city is underlined by the preserved red paved streets and the traditional houses. The best preserved part of the city is Sifang street right in the city centre. Another interesting site is the Mu's Palace, which was built in the 13th century, and it used to be a former seat of the hereditary office of the clan leaders from the Mu Dynasty. In 1998, it was adapted into the Lijiang Old Town Museum. In present days, Lijiang has over 25 000 inhabitants. Most of them are members of the Naxi ethnic minority. More than a third of them are still devoted to traditional handicraft production of copper and silver articles, furs, weaving and production of wine. The old town of Lijiang was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997.
