Music time! Enjoy “嘀嗒” by Kan Kan

If you've ever been to the Old Town in Lijiang (it's almost a requirement for China tourism), you'll remember its little winding streets. Part of that for many people is the song 滴答 by the singer 侃侃 (KanKan). It's a simple song, with just guitar, vocals and violins, but it's very pleasant to listen to. You'll know it if you've heard it – it has a distinctive onomatopoeia line that repeats throughout the song.

As far as I know, Di Da has become a bit of a cliche. You go to Lijiang on a romantic holiday with your partner, hear Di Da everywhere (every shop plays it on repeat), and after that Di Da becomes your nostalgic song for that holiday. Seriously, it seems like vast numbers of people have had the same experience with this song.

It's also worth remembering that whilst Lijiang is very nice, it's also maximised its tourism about as far as you can go. It's a bit like Venice. It is genuinely a nice place but you can't get away from the fact that it's making a lot of money, and everyone there knows it.

Anyway, on with the song!
