The Mufu family has a huge history in Lijiang so it's nice to go check out the palace. It's a bit pricey at 60 rmb per person for not an amazing palace. It's a nice little stop in the middle of the old city and...More

We didn't take a tour which may have enhanced our experience. The buildings here are impressive but I understand they are not original. This was the residence of the Mu family, the local rulers of this area.

After having a big lunch in the old town, it's time to enjoy the peaceful moment of a wealthy life back in the old days. It is a huge place with a clear distinct building dedicated to their ancestors, conference room, balcony views of the...More

At first, I thought the 60 yuan entry fee was a bit stiff, but as a respite from surrounding crowded streets and souvenir shops, it was well worth the fee. The complex, which was rebuilt after the fire and earthquake of 1996, looks more like...More

The palace as it is now, is a reconstruction of the original that was destroyed during the Qing Dynasty. However, it's a decent replication of the original, complete with artifacts from the original, as well as early decor. The palace itself is part of a...More

Take your time walking through the palace (at lesst 1 - 2 hours). Soak in its grandeur, elegance and peace. Can get busy at places but it's big and easy enough to avoid the crowds.

This for us was the main highlight of Lijiang. A beautiful palace complex, with stunning views at the temple. We perceived it as a more digestable and colourful version of the Forbidden City - and without the crowds. Only downside is that it provides limited...More
