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

Another feeling to be touched from other part of China. New town area is beautiful. So crowded especially in water festival period. The parade are awesome! Can say that it kind a tourist city. Tribal and cultural experience are the main issue for travelling here. And it's too hot in summer btw! Lol

A long awaited break from busy Shanghai life, we had a great time in Xishuangbanna region. In March / April, the weather is perfect and dry, if slightly on the warm side; around 30-35 degrees C. Our aim was to get out into nature and minority villages on the Burmese border. A couple of days in Jinghong, the region's capital,... More

To visit Xishuangbanna is one of my mother's dream since she was very young, I was happy and honor to bring her and father together for a family tour, so this city means a lot to us before we went there. The city is small but crowded, just like other popular leisure destinations, it is full of travellers which we... More

Overall, a chilled out place with some decent cafes (Mekong and Meimei on Menglong Road) and awesome weather. There's definitely potential for this place to be a real tourist destination (Westerners not just local tourists) but needs a lot of real investment into its infrastructure. The city itself is going through a lot of transition - lots of housing developments... More

This is a new area across the river from the main city. It was under development still when we were there but still enough to do. Very relaxing area only 5 mins to the main city I you really wanted to go there. An amazing dai BBQ restaurant. Really busy but worth the wait for the most amazing tasting food.... More

beautiful rainforests, elephants, monkeys, the feel of thailand vietnam & China mixed in a blender, lush vegetation & traditional ethnic villages, relaxed friendly atmosphere. These would be the keywords to describe this little corner of China that is dipping its toe into S.E. Asia. The local Dai culture is displayed in the architecture, sculptures, markets and villages nestled in the... More
