Hahaha good point!

We are going to do the Tiger Leaping Gorge, so I'll bear that in mind.

Any other ideas from people?

Lijiang old town, any high spot, where you can overlook the whole city, maybe sometime around sunset

Umm...this is my second post plugging the Intercontinental Hotel - I don't work there - no relationship, no kickback.

KUNMING INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL
That being said (and assuming you believe me) - the Intercontinental Hotel - 5 star international ranking (vs Chinese 5 star ranking).

POSH....classy, and you can make it an annual thing, a 5-10 year anniversary thing...good luck and happy trails...

For LiJian etc - look for internationally ranked 5 star brands (starwood, marriott, hyatt, intercontinental, etc)...posh, classy...and the hotels don't usually disappear the following year...

Looking over Lijiang is a good idea.

A posh hotel isn't so good, we aren't the type of couple who enjoys expensive things just because they are expensive!

Thanks for the ideas though!

The INTERCONTINENTAL also sits on the edge of Lake Dianchi - beautiful day and sunset location. Five star hotels are five star hotels because they usually also occupy prime real estate...vacation resort level.

It's not expensive to be expensive - it's expensive because of quality of service, location, ambience, and quality of food (and perhaps somewhat also - quality of people).

If you choose Lijiang - try to include a setting which includes the major minority group in that sector - the Naxi people group (and their equally distinctive dress).

Regardless - good luck and best wishes with your proposal - hope it's a GOOD memory for you both.
