Evening stroll through Foreigner Street inside Dali Ancient City. A lot of shops, eateries and pubs along this street. They have live bands and solo ballads. Many foreigners chill and have some beer and food here.

This street has more restaurants serving Western food than the others, but it is not as nice as Renmin (east-west, south of it) or Fuxing (north-south).
