Xishuangbanna Tropical Nature reserve, Jinghong

4.3
At Xishuangbanna Tropical Nature reserve, explore a pristine forest and discover folk customs of the indigenous people living in the area. The reserve encompasses the best-preserved rainforest valley south of the Tropic of Cancer. At the entrance, ask a guide for directions, since there is a lack of signage and maps inside the reserve. Walk deep into the forest--where it's more peaceful--over rope bridges and boardwalks, and look for a lake with peacocks. Other scenic spots include a waterfall, a pagoda, an ethnic village, and a performance field hosting folk shows. At a barbecue field, taste the local ethnic cuisine.
