This place was a melting pot of Myanmar, Thailand, Laos & Vietnam.mixing with Chinese assent! Staying at crowne plaza is a right choice as it keeps you in a tropical environment than the noisy town.

Having visited this remote part of southern China, I was impressed by its Thai influence everywhere, from writing to the shape of the building. Enjoyed the discovery and the climate. Open houses, luscious vegetation, parks and Night markets

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.
