Xishuangbanna is at the very south-west border of China. As a consequence, what you can find here is a mixture of architectural styles and cultures from Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Chinese ethnic minorities.

Jonghong is a very relaxed, laid-back city. The night market offeres delicious food (we tried only the veggie dishes though...).

The room is fair, and average services. The place is good for senior citizens (no elevator, it is only three floors). If you require a wheelchair, please phone the hotel to reserve the room which located at ground level. The hotel does not have refrigerator in the room.

A week based in Jinghong, with trips out to the local villages, is well worthwhile. The people here are remarkably friendly, the weather is generally fine and the food is varied, but... More

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
