Travel Tips for Xishuangbanna
Go when and where you gotta go
Or so it seems in China... Don't be surprised to see this sight. It's a normal, everyday thing to pee your kid on the sidewalk, street or where ever you might want. At least this woman's nice enough to aim him off the street!
Rice Terraces in Xishuangbanna
Pretty much everywhere you go in this area, you'll find terraces. Lots of terraces, endless terraces. When we arrived it was planting season, or, replanting season, if you will. At this point of the growing season, they take the rice from the thickly planted seed beds and replant them farther apart in bigger paddies.
There seem to be plenty of toilets/WCs along the roads. Some you pay for, some you don't. This is a nice, cheap one, dirty and covered in flies, but it affords a nice view! Lots of fresh air blowing in!
Two must-see images!
I spent one day taking a bus out of the city of Jinghong and ended up in a tiny town of Damenglong. The bus ran on a modern paved road, slowly onto smaller road, and then later into narrower dirt road. You can see ricefields along the way. I really enjoy looking at the peaceful scenery of rice field in this area. You can also see Dai women working in the rice field, some carrying their babies while they work.
Damenglong town is very small. Here I visited a small temple with such strong northern Thai architecture influence. Another temple is located on top of a small hill. This temple is with burmese architecture influences. At the small roundabout in the town, burmese influenced lions guarding in the center. I wished I had come on the market day.
Lancang River (Mekong River)
Lanchang River (Mekong River) runs in Jinghong town. This is a view of Lanchang river from Dai Minority Village in Menghun. It's peaceful and serene. The river can be seen throughout Yunnan from Jinghong to Deqin.
I heard that we can take a boat from Jinghong down to Laos. I don't know if it is true but it sounds interesting. However, I didn't include Laos in my itinerary last time.
