I have been studying at the Huayang in Lijiang for the past 6 months so far and absolutely love it! The atmosphere of the school is so much fun to learn in! I am in a class with 6 other people and sometimes we have a lot of questions about either the language or culture, but even still, my teachers are always there to answer the questions we have. One of my favorite things is the fun community they have. We do activities to help us remember the vocabulary we learned and that gets us speaking more too. I also really like the scenery in Lijiang. It is so stunning all year round! The people are all always so friendly too. It has been a great place to study and learn the language and culture.
Nice cozy environment, The menu has a good range of Tibetan and western food.
Very nice hotel with helpful and friendly staff. It's suitable for people who wants to stay away from the crowds. It's at the foot of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Although it's far from Lijiang old town area, the mountain view more than made for it.
My 4 days spent in Lijiang and at the Bivou were the highlight of my trip to Yunnan. The Bivou experience started even before I landed in China. Bivou staff quickly responded to my queries on email and so kindly helped me book my overnight train ticket from Kunming to Lijiang. Not only did they book a ticket but they also tried hard to secure the best bed (bottom bunk). When I finally arrived at the Bivou I was pleasantly surprised by the well-maintained traditional Chinese building decked out with all the amenities of a modern English cottage. They allowed an early check in and even fed me breakfast (think home-made jams, warm bread and made-to-order eggs), which was wonderful after a long overnight train ride. Next the staff were able to give great recommendations for a solo traveler. They took in account that i was an avid tea lover and pointed me to a beautiful tea store selling quality pu-erhs. They planned a electric scooter route around Lijiang that took me past farms, undulating hills, and historic temples. Hwee Ling even convinced me to eat the Bivou restaurant where I ate a delicious burger (was a little tired of Yunnan food by that time) for cheap. All in all, 10/10, will recommend the Bivou. Hwee Ling has worked tirelessly to create a sincere and catered experience for any type of traveler.
A great little place in the middle of a beautiful valley chock full of great climbing spots. The beds and rooms are very comfortable, though the bathrooms are shared, and of the "eco" variety (a plus as far as I'm concerned). The owners are very helpful about everything from info on climbing spots to trip planning and getting around the area. Also, the place is dirt cheap. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
