Xishuangbanna
Close to the border of Myanmar and Thailand, this subtropical region is home to the Dai ethnic people. Lowland rice fields along the banks of a broad Mekong River are divided by rolling hills covered in virgin rainforest and interspersed with isolated communities of Dai, Hani, Jino and Bulang minority peoples.

It is an ideal retreat for the winter when most of China is cold. Visit authentic villages of three minorities and their homes and stroll around the local market. Distinctive ethnic people in colourful costumes, various local food and products and a tea plantation will make your trip truly memorable.

Xishuangbanna has the only tropical forest nature reserve in China. The great biological diversity in the virgin forest is surprising. Furthermore, Xishuangbanna is far away from central China. Religiously it is mainly affected by Hinayana Buddhism of Southeast Asia. The Manfeilong Buddhist Pagoda is the quintessence of Hinayana Buddhist architecture.

 
Highlights

*Enjoy the tropical scenery and admire the costumes and customs of the ethnic minority people.

Best time to visit

November to April is the best season to visit Xishuangbanna. But also during the rainy season, May to October, you can have a nice stay.
