Karaoke (KTV) bars
Ready for the full Chinese nightlife experience? Then get yourself down to a karaoke bar and belt out your best Tom Jones or Madonna while drinking some of the weakest beer known to man! Like any other popular tourist town in China, Dali has dozens of Karaoke bars dotted around town, which are easily spotted by some gaudy lighting outside and the letters KTV on the wall.
You will find one down the lower reaches of Yu Er Lu, one mid-way along Bo Ai Lu, and another down a little alley off Bo Ai Lu. But for the full KTV experience head up to SanYueJie, that runs just off the top of the West Gate. Here you will find a wide road filled with more than 20 KTV bars. Just pick the loudest, most offensive looking one, and get inside. Enjoy!
