With four main streets radiating from an open-air market core of old Lijiang, Square Street (Sifangjie) served as an important hub on the ancient Tea Horse Road. Skillfully laid-out canals with clean water run through this area paved with square gray stones with many side alleys packed with shops and bars. Enjoy a cup of tea and watch locals dip their feet (or beer) in the cold canal water. Traditional brick and wood houses and structures with carved gates and painted windows preserve the traditional look of the street. Pick up some famous bronze pieces or knitted shawls for souvenirs. Only bicycles and carts are allowed inside. Use our Lijiang day trip planning app to arrange your visit to Square Street (Sifangjie) and other attractions in Lijiang.

四方街と言っても古城の中の広場で何と言うこともないです。 麗江古城のほぼ真ん中なので迷ったらここへ戻るとよいかも。 この古城は道がデコボコせて歩きにくいです。ゆっくり街歩きに適したデコボコ。トイレが多い、街の方向案内多い、清掃がしっかりしていてとてもよいです。 more »Even if it is said a four-way street, there is nothing to say in the plaza in the old castle. It's almost in the middle of Lijiang Kojo, so if you get lost, you might want to go back here. This old castle is hard to walk on. It is a decoboco suitable for a slow street walk. There are a lot of toilets, there are a lot of directions guidance of the town, the cleaning is steady and is very good.
