Michele was an excellent host. Bug's Guest House is located in Shuhe, about 6 km (4 miles) out side of Lijiang. Although Lijiang is hyped as the centre of the Naxi people and their Donga culture, and is definitely worth seeing, it is more like a museum in many respects, and a very commercialized one at that. Shuhe, although with less to see, had a more authentic feel and Bug's Guest House was located in the middle of the village with its own beautiful little courtyard complete with koi pond and pomegranate tree. Michele was extremely helpful when asked if he would help me book a flight, and I ate several times with him and his in-laws who pulled together some of the most memorable meals of my few weeks in China. I would recommend a side trip to the Naxi town of Basia, about 6 km out of town, for it's authenticity (and the tapestry museum is worth visiting). 'Bug's' was a great stay!
This is a nice guest house, but it is NOT for everyone. First, you should know that it is about five miles from old Lijiang, and you'll need to take a cab or minibus back and forth. However, it is located in the middle of another very old village, which is just as cute, but with way fewer people than old Lijiang. The bad news is that if a taxi drops you off at the village entrance, you'll need to drag your bags about 1/4 mile over some very rough cobblestones, as cars are not permitted into the old area, in order to get to the location. Also, if you're not met by the owners, there is very little chance you'll successfully find the front door.
Once there, the rooms are clean, pleasant and comfortable.
Nice hostal for Lijiang area, friendly, good wifi and helpful when navigating the nuances of China! Yunnan province is great, do visit!
Nette bezoekers die zich keurig hebben gedragen in huis. Keurig alle afspraken nagekomen en altijd weer welkom!
I was very happy to meet michele and his family. They were very kind and I recomand for all who want a good guest! Thank you and your welcome back any time
Michele è un ospite impeccabile. Puntuale, preciso, ordinato.
Ho avuto il piacere di ospitare Michele con la sua famiglia.
Michele è un ragzzo molto educato discreto e sorridente e così anche le altre persone che erano con lui.
E' stato molto disponibile e preciso sugli orari e, avendo subito dopo di loro un'altro gruppo,mi ha agevolato consentendo agli altri di lasciare i loro bagagli mentre era ancora in casa.
Ha lasciato la casa pulita e in ordine, è stato un piacere ospitarlo.
Grazie Michele. Beatrice.
Great and really well organized person. I am fully advice his place, I am sure he will be really helpful every time you need him during your stay. Perfect location and great atmosphere...
