Yes, I have already travelled extensively around China including Jilin, Heilongjiang, Sichuan, Gua ...

you can visit my hometown in the heart of China - the great Tujia people!! but you will never find it in the map!on second thought, we rather not have too many foreigners there. we want to keep it pristine and 'virgin'.

You are saying you are Chinese but insult Chinese women? How despicable.

I have visited LiJiang for a few days, but it was back in 2005, so my information is not so current.  My wife and I stayed in the rebuilt "old city" part of town at a friend's little house.  The old town was very interesting to me, but could be considered "Disney-like".

We spent time riding around the countryside nearby on a rented motorbike.  That was the most interesting part to me.  There are also organized excursions available trough some of the hotels there that take you out of town to the countryside.  

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jade_Dragon_Snow_Mountain) towers nearby and is a good trip.  We took a day-long guided horseback ride in the foothills that was very nice.

Enjoy your trip.

Cheers

I am a Tujia from Xiangxi,Hunan. The beautiful places and things are hidden deep in the mountains. I think places of interests are not interesting at all, i'd like to see people in their daily life. In my hometown, there are people taking wood boats to the market, the farmers on the boat and the beautiful view along the river are my most memorable. Last time i was in Liye, i saw old people dancing the old dance on the plaza and wild flower all over the highland.  There are just so many interesting places and things that i cannot list all. I will send you a video i took last time if you are interested.

This is my interest too, I try and avoid the obvious tourist attractions and try and seek out the interesting.

Lijiang is very beautiful but it is as beautiful as it is touristy...with all inconveniences linked  ...

I was in Xiamen. I liked to go swimming in the sea and walked on the beach . There is a old restaurant called Jia wei zai tian in Datong road that local people likes to visit. I saw old Xiamen men drunk and throwing glasses there, haha. Born in the middle of China, it was fun to see the food market in Datong road full of big seafood at night. Zhongshan street is worth exploring as some old buildings are still in life. I have many have to go places in Xiamen, like the beach, the restaurant i written above, a barbecue booth in Zhongshan road and the little island--Gulanyu. As for the island, i normally walked to places few tourists went, the buildings are amazing. By the way, i would suggest going there in Autumn when it is not very warm.
