Songtsam Linka Lijiang
Why We Love This Hotel
Explore: Lijiang’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by incredible wild spaces, meaning guests to this remote corner of the globe will have no shortage of sights to explore during their stay.
A Chance to Unplug: The Songtsam Linka Lijiang is located just outside of Lijiang in an intimate Naxi village that has a slow pace of life and invites visitors to set aside the pressures of modern life and enjoy the moment.
Style: The hotel’s unique combinations of Naxi-Dongba, Chinese-Hantang, and Tibetan-influenced art pieces infuse the hotel with a distinctive style.
