Do yourself a favor next time you travel to Yunnan. Don't sleep in Lijiang, far too noisy and crowded. Instead book a room at The Bivou and enjoy the quietness of the little Shuhe. The chic bed and breakfast could easily be featured in Wallpaper Magazine, the rooms are bright and cosy at the same time. We loved the wooden floor in the shower! All the staff was friendly and efficient and it is evident that the manager Hweeling is putting a lot of efforts to make us feel at home: afternoon snacks, healthy breakfast (with homemade jam and cereals!), treasure hunt for the kids, travel guides... She really cares about her guests!
The only regret we have is that we didn't stay long enough! But we will definitely be back one day!
