We stayed at the OLD THEATRE in January ( 2013 ) and were very happy with the choice .
Shaxi is the true gem of Southwest China ...
A temple , a school and still function as a theatre , this little hotel is a genuine treasure in a beautiful valley , and very close top the fabulous Shaxi Town .
The hotel rent - ( for very little money ) bicycles so you can visit Shaxi , only 15 minutes away . They can also arrange for transport to your next destination as well as to explore the fantastic temples near by .
We found that Shaxi is the only original old town in one area that is full of reconstituted places like the well known Dali and Lijiang .
A place not to be missed ...
