Say What?? Travel Photo: Massage Room

When you arrive in Shangri-La, you’ll notice one thing. You have to do a lot of walking! Much like some other historic “old towns” in China’s Yunnan province (like Lijiang or Dali), Shangri-La’s “old town” is free of vehicular traffic, leaving the cobblestone streets looking quite picturesque!

And if the streets aren’t enough, you could always climb a hill to visit the temple and attempt to spin it’s giant prayer wheel!

But when you’ve had enough, there’s always a place you can go for a nice massage. Because after a hard day’s work, what could be better than relaxing a bit, right? Well, Shangri-La has the solution for you!

"Tired has rested the massage room"

As far as I can read this, if you’re tired, you’ll be rested at this massage room….or something…

    Aaron, I’m loving these posts and pics from China. I think the sign means ‘the massage room is closed/broken because ‘TIRED’ came to have a rest on it’, lol.
