Directions to Nirvana Backpacker
Map & Directions
We are located in the old town of Lijiang. Vehicles aren't allowed into old town, so you have to get to an old town entrance and then walk a few minutes to find our accommodation.
If lost, don't hesitate to call us, and we can either come meet you or give directions to a driver to drop you off in the most convenient location.
Taxis and minivans can't come into old town, so show them this address, which is the old town entrance nearest to our accommodation: “古城管理局路口”
From this entrance, walk down the cobblestone road into old town, taking the left hand fork after a small wooden kiosk just 30m from the main road. Take this step narrow road down to the end, where it joins a main old town thoroughfare. At this T-junction, turn right, walk 20m and take the steps down on your left for about 75m where there is another intersection. At this junction, turn left, and walk about 80m. Straight ahead you will see the sign for us. Take the left hand alleyway.
From the waterwheel at the entrance to old town, walk along the main wide road that goes from the TV square to the old town square named Sifang Jie. In the square, take the first left exit, Wu Yi street, which crosses the Big Stone Bridge. Walk along this main thoroughfare for 10 minutes, passing under an archway, crossing another street, and after 80m take the steps down to your right. Go to the next intersection, turn left, and after 80m you will see a white building as the road curves to the right. Take the alleyway to the left, to our signposted guesthouse.
