03/09/2012

Published on Mar 9, 2012

Lijiang airport, in southern China’s Yunnan province, will soon be able to accept international flights, Xinhua reported the local government as saying yesterday. The decision means that international tourists will soon be able to fly direct to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city, rather than having to connect via regional hubs such as Kunming. According to Lijiang municipal government, the number of passengers passing through the airport could double to more than four million per year by 2015. Lying in the foothills of the Himalayas, Lijiang is famous for its cobbled streets, waterways and bridges. It is also home to several luxury hotels including a Banyan Tree, Pullman and Crowne Plaza.
