A street in Lijiang city enables visitors to discover ancient charms, ethnic culture and folk art. Pei Pei reports in Lijiang, Yunnan.

A visit to Lijiang's Najie Street is a journey through the ethnic cultures of Yunnan province.

Visitors can meet national-level intangible-culture inheritors in person to see how they live and learn how to create local handicrafts.

Duan Guoliang, who's in his 70s, is one of the inheritors who hosts visitors and answers their questions. He's known for creating wood carvings according to the tradition of the ethnic Bai people of Jianchuan county.

His masterpieces include a wooden bed and a dresser he made for the United Kingdom's Queen Elizabeth II's use during her 1986 stay in Yunnan's capital, Kunming.
