So much to see and taste. Many ethnic minorities contribute to a vibrant and rich life. There are temples, lots of puerh tea and ancient tea gardens, as well as wonderful places to stay.

Jinghong used to be a charming town with a strong Dai flavor. Over the last 10 years it has become every more Han Chinese, with the Dai-ness reduced to kitsch on a large scale. There are still some pockets of Dai culture but virtually all...More
