After hearing from friends that Lijiang is commercialised and loud with karaoke lounges, I stumbled upon the charming village of Shuhe which is about 6 km from Lijiang. Then I read from Tripadvisor that Huifeng Inn is rated as the No. 1 place to stay in when visiting Lijiang. I did not know what to expect but booked into Huifeng Inn anyway.
Upon arrival at Huifeng Inn, my response was "WOW". The architecture of the inn is in the traditional Chinese courtyard style but the interiors are beautifully co-ordinated by the talented owner Jerry whilst his beautiful wife Lily gives the finishing touches with fresh flowers. Jerry has spent alot of time researching into the Naxi style for the furniture and the total effect is stunning. Every room is decorated with different kinds of furniture and the colour co-ordination together with the specially selected fabrics makes each room a welcoming place to return to each evening after a tiring day of sightseeing and shopping. The bathrooms are modern and spotlessly clean.
The location is excellent with many good restaurants within walking distance. The owner Jerry was educated in Singapore and speaks very good English. His education in Singapore has prepared him well for this hospitality business with excellence, innovation and creativity.
During the weekend when I was staying at the Huifeng Inn, there was a Naxi square dance for all the guests to participate in. It was fun!
I am now a fan of the "Huifeng Inn" brand and look forward to staying at another inn which will open in Shuhe at the end of this year.
