This is a part of China where English or French are simply not spoken. "Xishang" as the locals call the town is actually Jinghong. The region of Yunnan province in which the city is located, is Xishangbanna. It is one of those older towns that is just exploding with Chinese development. It's a bit like Puerto Vallarta, a bit like... More

We are a couple from Holland. We have a terrific trekking in Xishuangbana in Yunnan province of China. The 3 days well-arranged trekking with guide Phoebe from the Xishuangbanna Rainforest Trekking Company are perfect with old wooden stilted houses with minorities, jungle, old monastery, waterfall, tea plantations etc. The Xishuangbanna Rainforest Trekking Company is highly recommended!!!

In and and around Jinghong, yunnan province China are many very good attractions. If you want to learn about an ethic chinese group the Dia cultural center is worth the visit. Southern Yunnan does not get many foreigners, I did not see one foreigner, so be sure to get a tour guide. In the evening there is a buffet dinner... More

What a great place, very laid-back, lots to see and do around Jinghong. Beautiful scenery and very peaceful. If you are looking for a jungle and rainforest getaway, then look no further.

I love Xishuangbanna as the weather is very pleasant and the local people are very nice,you can't feel it's a tourism city as most are local people,not like Dali&Lijiang where are full of tourist. In Xishuangbanna you can enjoy the rainforest and experience the minority life.

Banna hasn't lost it's character to the 'modernization' that has afflicted the rest of China ... yet. I will not repeat what the other reviewers have mentioned, only note that I agree with the positive comments about it's character. I had the opportunity to live in pre-civil war Liberia with happy people and good local food. Banna reminded me of... More
