This is a great one-day side-trip to add to a visit to Lijiang and the Lijiang Old Town. You can grab the Number 6 bus from the road outside the north gate of the Lijiang Old Town, or grab a taxi. We took a taxi out and the bus back. The taxi was 50 yuan, and the bus was 1... More

While there are some old murals and picturesque landscape, it's not too accessible for someone who doesn't read Chinese. But it is worth a quick stop in because it's right there in town.

Very relaxed place not as commercialized as the other old towns. We went in the morning and had lunch there which seems a good choice. Afternoon we went on to the pond and the main old town what seems to be a good scheduling for a day.

We visited today and were pretty underwhelmed - two of the temples were closed (we were informed before entering & paying) and the few that were open took us all of 20mins to walk through. Some interesting architecture but not really worth the 30rmb entry cost and we only saw one building with traditional murals - the others showed copies... More

Mural was damaged in an earthquake; the story of its restoration interesting in itself. Surviving parts of mural have been placed in an unlit area and you must use a flashlight to see the figures in otherwise dark blobs on the walls.

Baisha village street atmosphere is more traditional atmosphere than Lijiang old town. It seems just started developing for visitor. There are many Dyed product shop and Cafe. So I enjoyed slow time in this village.

A few nice old buildings and a few old murals. A bit difficult to appreciate either as you'll see plenty of both everywhere in China. Stop by if you have time and happen to be nearby, don't plan your trip around them if you're not extremely fond of old Buddhist murals.

Do make a trip a Baisha before it becomes touristy like Dayan and Shuhe. It's slowly getting there though. The site where the murals are displayed is poorly kept. The ticketing office did not inform us that 2 of the 4 buildings were closed to public. We were quite disappointed. Transport information: Take bus number 6 from either Dayan or... More

The old buildings were charming enough to visit on their own, though to protect the murals they housed them in a tiny dark hall which kind of defeated the purpose of visiting them. Baisha village was charming and pretty and quite laid-back and we enjoyed walking around exploring its lanes and alleys.
