Typical chinese soulless sightseeing spot. Well i expacted it but i was borred and in the area. Not worth the entry better buy cigarettes with the money and give them to the locals you will have a nicer trip. It you want to go in a nice park go to the botanical garden.

A nature park converted to a tourist trap day and night. Not really worth the entrance fee. Lots of new buildings inside and dressed up "so called" minorities.

This extensive park has some wonderful views and is a great place to wander around. The lake area is pretty spectacular, and the large Buddhist temple just outside the back gate is impressive and authentically Thai in flavour. Some parts are very touristy and you would probably want to give the elephant and bird shows a miss, but overall very... More

At first we went to the gate to buy tickets and it's around 220RMB per person. And then there was a woman come out of nowhere offered us that she could buy the tickets for a much cheaper price so we trusted her and we went through the gate then we gave her 20RMB each. The inside is ok for... More

The park itself is nice and very peaceful, there are many species of plants to see. They are constructing at the moment, so its not quite finished. They have an elephant show, but the animals are not well treated, so just stick to the plants. Its quite difficult to find, relying on signs alone, so get a map.

My husband came here years ago and was excited to take our toddler to see the peacocks. Since then, it has been upgraded in the ranks of Chinese tourist attractions, so they now command 40RMB per person. The peacocks were gone as far as we could tell, and much of the park was under construction. We did get to see... More

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.
