Nestled deep in the restored section of Old Lijiang LUX is a small, but slightly stark, boutique hotel. With just ten rooms LUX provides an intimate experience. The rooms are set around two courtyards and all are comfortable and pleasant with good lighting and traditional wood. There is a downstairs restaurant providing a charming setting for breakfast where you can choose to sit indoors or out and enjoy the atmosphere provided by the sounds of local life. Upstairs you will find another dining area as well as a lovely tea room that is designed to make you feel as if you are travelling on the Ancient Tea Route. The hotel does not provide a spa or swimming facilities, but the service is friendly and attentive and guests are well looked after.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
