Received in late June via Postcrossing private swap. :) Thanks Xiaoshuo!
The Old Town of Lijiang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Lijiang City, Yunnan, southern China.
A bit of history: (source: Wiki)
The town has a history going back more than 800 years and was once a confluence for trade along the old tea horse road. It is famous for its orderly system of waterways and bridges.
The town (including Dayan, Baisha and Shuhe) was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List on December 4, 1997. Since then, the local government has taken more responsibility for the development and protection of the old city. Lijiang’s tourism also boomed, and travellers from around the world flooded in; although many locals fear that due to much of the development, the old town of Lijiang will lose its appeal.

Travelling in China is so exhausting because you always have to fight your way out of the huge crowd. -_-” *sigh*
