As with Yunnan province, prices are a little steep but this really is a stunning temple. Great views with the morning sun and best to get the crowds arrive. Expect to spend a few hours here as there is quite a walk to see everything. There are cars available for transit to the top if needed

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area and are looking for something to do for a few hours. If there's no haze, you'll see this huge buddha from afar and will have a great view from up there. Entry fee is very high (120 rmb, and an addl 40 if you want golf carts to take you... More

Visited at the end of the day... Less people and very quiet. Lots of stairs to climb, you can choose an optional transportation to the top and go downstairs by walk, enjoying the view on the old and new city of Jonghong. Guide service is available at the entrance, but not sure they provide service in English. You also can... More

This Thai style temple is definitely worth a visit when you're in the area. Entry fee is very high but the temple is beautiful to see.

First of all this is China in 2015 so if you are looking for authentic experiences, you are at the wrong place. This installation of many temples is very nicely done and looks like an idyllic oasis in this otherwise busy city. The big BUT is that everything is either being build right now or has been build in the... More

As most of the attractions here in yunnan, this Temple is expensive (120 rmb/person). All the visit is going up the hill and see different temples. At the top is under construction a new Dai's style building. The view is great. You can avoid walking all the stair paying 40 rmb additional to have a electric car that takes you... More

Of all the places I went to in Xishuangbanna, this was by far my favourite place and most stunning. Another tourist trap (RMB 120 pp paid RMB 100 as our local driver got us a discount) but felt more worth it than the other places visited. I'm ethnically Chinese and try to visit temples as much as possible, especially during... More

Actually this is not a traditional Chinese buddhist temple, because the style is Thai. It was rebuilt and restored one year ago, therefore now is in a perfect shape. It is really gorgeous! And after seeing Manting Park, you totally don't expect to see such a building in a corner of the park. I was marveled by this structure and... More
