The people of the Dali region have blended Han and Bai culture alongside other migratory and regional traditions to strike a relatively peaceful balance between indigenous values and external influences. The rich cultural heritage of the region is evident in all aspects of the people’s lives. The outer-worldly beauty of this region combined with year round mild temperatures makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations in China. It is a place to witness the colorful cultures of Yunnan and be in intimate contact with nature. Despite the big draw towards mass tourism, it is still very easy to get away from the crowds, and be completely alone while meditating in nature. Therefore, we consider it an ideal retreat destination in China.

- Objective: allows everyone to express themselves creatively, in full colors, and in a non-competitive way.

- Objective: Good outdoor exercise and relaxation for some, but can also be a physical challenge to others.

Pot Luck Event
- How it works: The group will be broken into small groups and then will draw from a hat on the dish that they are to make for the group. Then each group will be given a budget and then go to the local market to shop for ingredients for the dishes that they are to make. Upon return to the hotel, the groups will work together to prepare the dishes, and then the group will enjoy a meal with full of tasty surprises!
