So how much has Dali changed in these 13 years since 99...Back then it was the most gorgeous city besides lijiang and Yangshou that I had been to in China..Old buildings, unique minority style of dressing, lots of Mao suits...It was beautiful...Anyone able to give me an update on how the city has changed for the article and also myself? Maybe we could do a Dali then and Dali now section with the pictures if someone had more recent pictures of the city or old town.. Dounai (talk) 18:22, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

Request for information

The locality "Tapin-tze" is mentioned in the botanical literature and was apparently the collection site "near Lake Tali" for numerous specimens by Delavay in the 1800's. I have been unable to find coordinates or a modern name for this location but I assume it is somewhere near Dali. (talk) 13:44, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
