Dali Ancient City Entrance Fees
As of September 2015, it has been announced that Dali Ancient City in Yunnan Province will start charging entrance fees. Tourists who are visiting with a travel agency will be charged 30 Yuan per person. It is said the entrance fee will be put in place to cover maintenance costs. There will also be a 1% charge from stalls and shop incomes which comes from an announcement of the ancient city protection bureau. For travelers who plan to visit Dali Ancient City by themselves without a travel agency, there is no entrance fee charge, however this means that you won’t be able to visit specific scenic spots in the city.
