A treat of tropical area

We enjoyed the tour which didn't seem like a 'tour', walking through the tropical forest with friends. Very informative and entertaining.

Very expensive entrance tickets for what it offers. And don't bother for 'interpreters' soliciting you inside the park. There is nothing to translate or interpret. Also, too many hawkers hassle you with soliciting of photo taking. Yet, it is a short enjoyable 1 hour forest walk, and the dancing show is OK (don't expect too much, and don't stay to... More

It's a long way from Jingling (2 1/2 hours by car). Has a skyway - basically elevated rope bridges for extra 100 yuan, kids said it was ok. You also get a brief ride up the Mekong river in a boat with Mandarin commentary. Some people who'd arrived after lunch weren't able to get on the boat because not enough... More

My teenagers and I enjoyed walking through the tropical forest environment. Take the electric cart to the Eastern district for peace and quiet, away from the tourist groups.

This park is about an hour south of Xishuangbanna. We were able to hire a driver for 200RMB to take us their and back. At the park they have tour guides to tell you about what you will see (30RMB), however, you will need a translator to understand them (you have to bring your own). The entrance fee for the... More

The great trekking we had in Jinghong is really cool. The minorities are still traditonal in their costoms and habits in villages where are very close to Laos. In Jinghong city it is vey similar with Thailand's style for the buidings and very clean, less traffic and friendly people .We really like the 4 days we stayed in Xishuangbanna.

We walked into the rainforest with a guide who told us about a small tribe that lives there. Most likely you will need a translotor to understand the guide

One of best tourist things I've ever done, to meet villagers only discovered by the chinese government 18 years ago that cannot speak any mainstream languages and remain cutoff from the world in their traditional values. Give them one cigarette and they'll give you free local baijou to drink and fuss over you your entire visit. Have a friend take... More

To be honest, the views inside the Rainforest didn't meet my expectation, the plants with complicated names are not easy to remember, all of them look similar with each other...... The tour guide was good and with a great sense of humor, we were made to laugh by his funny words all the way, pretty much impressive. There were a... More
