In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Dali Ancient Town and taken to the meeting point.
Then we will ride an electric bike to the charming small town Xizhou along the western scenery road. You can stop beside the road at any time to enjoy the beautiful and tranquil Erhai scenery. When we arrive in Xizhou, we will wander through the town and visit exquisitely well preserved old Bai-style traditional courtyards and feel in a different world as you explore the Bai minority’s distinctive culture. Xizhou is a small town with a long history, dating back thousands years, when it was an ancient economic hub along the tea-horse road.
Xizhou Baba is a local delicacy which you can normally just buy on the local market. But on this trip, we will take you into a local folk house to make your own Baba. Xizhou baba is a baked pancake with a crispy crust and filled with one of two flavors: sweet or savory. The sweet one is made of sweet rose sugar and brown sugar, the savory one is filled with delicious salty meat. Afterwards we will ride back to Dali ancient town. Spend your time in the old town having a drink in one of Dali’s many cozy little bars or warmly decorated coffeeshops or strolling around its lively main streets where local young artists sell all kinds of beautiful handicrafts. Your journey will end here and we wish you a great trip to wherever you are off to next!
