On this visit, we enjoyed many elements of Xishuangbanna. The highlights were the architecture of the temples and related structures, the Xishuangbanna bridge at night when brightly lit in multi colours, a dance performance, and the night scene of the Mekong River.

So much to see and taste. Many ethnic minorities contribute to a vibrant and rich life. There are temples, lots of puerh tea and ancient tea gardens, as well as wonderful places to stay.
