After a long journey, reaching the old city of Shaxi gives you a great feeling of achievement. Yes, it was worth coming that far and discover a very well preserved square with old shops, guest houses and cafes which look from another age.
Lao Ma Dian fits in perfectly. An old 2 story house made out of wood and mud bricks which is very well maintained. Very clean and well thought, the rooms have this very typical old look but with a nice modern twist.
Beds are comfortable, bathrooms are clean.
The small courtyards are nicely decorated and give you the feeling that you are staying with a local family.
The staff is very nice and helpfull.
The restaurant offers nice Bai food and a great breakfast.
This guest house is the opposite of a high tech 5 star hotel but you will fall in love with its incredible style.
The walls, the furniture and all accessories are like they were never achieved. Quite artistic.
Don't miss walking around the square at night. This is a very safe and friendly neighborhood where people are used to seeing foreigners and smile.
