Kang Ding is a famous historical city. Since ancient times, merchants traveling in many directions have come to Kang Ding with Tibetan and Chinese commodities, making Kang Ding a center for the trade and distribution of Tibetan and Chinese goods. Trade routes from Kang Ding extended westward to Lhasa, India, Nepal, Bangladesh; south to Yunnan and Myanmar; and east to the Han Central Plains and Shanghai. These routes were known as the China Southern Silk Road and the Tea Horse and Tang Fan Ancient Road. Therefore Han Traders’ Halls, Tibetan Traders’ Guo Zhuang, Porters’ Accommodations with Horse Stables, and Rest Houses with Commodity Storage. It is with this history as background that this business was named the Yongzhu Motel (‘Motel’ translating驿栈 the term for Rest House with Commodity Storage).
