If you are in Jinghong and have nothing else to do, just visit for a couple of hours. A daily show of monkeys, elephants and nothing else. The positive point is the Tai Buddhist Pagoda and monestary that worth a visit.

Most of my reviews of attractions within Jinghong/Xishuangbanna have been poor - this park included. Entrance is on the lower end, RMB 40 but don't even waste your money. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the park is under construction and there is little to see. The only form of excitement was the flying fox across the dirty lake (RMB 20... More

This park is actually under construction: they want to amply some part and build new facilities. Actually it's worth to see it, if you have time to spend going around the city. In this park the vegetation is a nice example of rainforest, but if you have time to see the real one by trekking, don't bother to come. Inside... More

We came late and missed all the shows - maybe for the better. Liked: We liked the tropical part of the park near the entrance and the spots on the other side of the lake. It's quite pretty in the afternoon. There seems to be a lot of activities that you can spend an afternoon enjoying, e.g. the flying fox,... More

The park is extremely small full of noisy attractions including an elephant in a tiny kind of cage for circus purpose. It is not a relaxing atmosphere that one may expect. Moreover, the entrance fee is about 10 euro, that is unacceptable for a place that doesn't offer to you anything special.

I enjoy this park with my family. they have a good variety of things to do - dancing show, boat ride, flying fox, hand feed peacocks, bird show & nice tropical setting right in the middle of the city. BUT, it is true that the animals are not well taken care of compared to western zoos - if you are... More

Upon deciding to visit the park we were unaware we would be experiencing full on animal abuse and cruelity! The most shocking was the treatment of the elephants DURING the performance. The elephants were not given commands without the use of a BULLHOOK, either being hit with maximum force by the handle or the hook itself. The elephants showed immense... More

The park is ok, but not worth to pay any entrance fee. But the white pagoda is nice uner the blue weather. And the elephant performance was only soso, not so interesting.

This is famous in China for it's exceptional teas. Just like Monteray California is known for wines, Pu're is known in China for the tea grown here. Very easy to fly into this modern city with a very ancient past. The mushroom restaurant is a must to experience with wild harvested and exotic mushrooms of every kind you can imagine...tasty...
