Lijiang

Lijiang is the royal capital of the Dari Naxi in Yunnan Province of the People's Republic of China, and most of the Naxi still reside here. In addition to the Naxi, the Lahu, Pumi, Bai, and Yi ethnic groups live in this area, and the number of ethnic minorities is larger than that of the Han Chinese. Although it suffered great damage due to the great earthquake in 1996, the old town of Lijiang Old Town in Goseong-gu was registered as a World Cultural Heritage site, and it was quickly revived and is now almost restored.
