Welcome to Lijiang. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, Lijiang has been aptly referred to as the Venice of the Orient. At Banyan Tree Resort Lijiang, located 2,000 metres above sea level, the resort’s temperate climate and pristine environment add to the ethereal charm cloaking the air. Be fascinated by the legendary Naxi Kingdom as you explore Lijiang’s beauty. Admire the majesty of the legendary Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, a sacred sanctuary standing guard over the ethnic minorities since ancient times and an hour’s drive from the Banyan Tree Resort Lijiang.

Plant A Seed, Change A Life
Launched in 2007 to nurture young people at risk of societal exclusion, Seedlings Mentorships aims to provide young people with the motivation and means for completing their education in preparation for entering the labour force.
