Dali, Yunnan. Hours from any major city its set between Erhai Lake and the Cangshan Mountain chain. With its strategic location, it was once a key military site hundreds of years ago. It made a perfect home base for my China trip.

Thankfully the city retains much of its medieval charm, not yet giving itself irredeemably away to tourism. I hope to go back and find it just as I left it.
