    Venture into a Dai village

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked into a Dai village, observed in amazement the houses of the Dai people, built on stilts, and saw most beautiful fruit trees including,

    1) papaya
    2) ginger
    3) pamelo
    4) jackfruit
    5) mango
    6) yam - as shown in the picture. The big leaves.

    And I wonder why they hang all the corns.

    The name Xishuang Banna actually is a corrupted translation from the Thai language. Sip Song means twelve ( ten two), and Banna apparently means rice fields.

    Go to the outskirts and enjoy these rice fields view fully. Yup, they are planted in the water.

    Many farmers. Corn seems to be some kind of staple. Most village houses have corns hanging on the horizontal post just underneath the floorboards. The houses are on stilts.
