Pagoda at Banyan Tree Lijiang

Just an hour's drive from majestic Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (where ethnic minorities have been preserving their cultures since ancient times), the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lijiang is known as the Venice of the Orient, due to its lacework of canals and cobblestone streets. It is in this setting that the Banyan Tree Lijiang offers a truly tranquil escape. Local traditions have inspired the rich design and décor of the luxurious suites and villas, including traditional sweeping roofs and a palette of red, black and gold. A lavish spa pampers the senses, while varied fine dining experiences satisfy the appetite. The focal point of the resort is an ornamental pond with arched bridges and a tiered pagoda — the latter can be reserved for romantic moonlight dinners for two.
