Exploring Dali

Exploring Dali Have you ever heard of Dali? No, I’m not referring to the surrealist artist of the early 20th century. Dali, the small ancient town nestled in China’s Yunnan Province is a departure from the bigger cities in the People’s Republic that will make you feel like you stepped back in time, to a slower paced China. It also happens to be the place many young Chinese artists and bohemians alike are calling home these days.
