"Southern Yunnan" Top 5 Page for this destination Xishuangbanna by John195123

Xishuangbanna Travel Guide: 42 reviews and 85 photos

Xishuangbanna (Xi shuang ba na) is a beautiful region of southern Yunnan: tropical, verdant and popular for Chinese tourists. I was impressed, however, that, even during the Spring Festival/Holiday in May, there were relatively few tourists here. Xishuangbanna is a land of voluptuous, mountain roads, winding sickeningly through crumbling concrete villages, terraces spilling endlessly down mountain slopes, graced with water buffalo pulling a long history of farming methods. It's great, it's green.

I really like the image on the Terraces tip.

    Strange - am I really the first commenter of a good page that exists here for more than 4 years?!Come on VTers!! We definitely have to support pages like this one, with great photography and some well written tips. Good that you warn about Wild Elephant Valley, I thought of visiting it some time ago but then it's too much negativity about it so I better don't go. Don't wanna be disappointed with the treatment of wildlife there (and just about same anywhere else in the world) and waste my RMB on such stuff.
