"Jinhong (Xishanbanna): The Chinese Mekong portal" Jinghong by Richard.GVA
Jinghong Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 104 photos
Many backpackers pass through this rather large town on their way from/to Laos. I stayed here for a couple of nights and do not regret it. Travel Cafés offer interesting day tours and trekking to ethnic minority dwellings in scenic surroundings.
There is also a fast boat service (8 hrs) to Thailand, usually 3 times a week, subject to a minimum of abt 20 passengers and water conditions (no boats this spring because the Mekong water level was ways too low).
Contact a Jinhong travel café for booking and guidance)
- Pros:Good travel connections by road or air
- Cons:Nobody speaks English (best to look for travel café)
- In a nutshell:More than just a bus stop
