This hotel built in traditional Chinese style is very well designed and furnished and has great charm. The hotel manager and staff were especially helpful. The restaurant food was relatively simple but suited us with two young children very well.

Dear Cheri A Thank you for choosing Sky Valley. In December, the weather in Dali was around 6~17 degrees. Our hotel rooms were equipped with air conditioning and the dining room had the heater. There are too many places to play in China, it is depends on the specific time of your schedule, but only in Yunnan, you have many choices, such as Dali, Shangri-La, Tengchong, Yunlong and so on. If you need more information, please tell us. Hope to seeing you in the near future in sky valley. Thank you. Dali Sky Valley Heritage Boutique Hotel

You should check with the hotel. We had our own transport so it wasn't an issue. The hotel is not in Dali but in a little village a few kilometers from Dali.
