Xishuangbanna Tropical Nature reserve, Jinghong

(4.4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Xishuangbanna Tropical Nature reserve on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Jinghong trip itinerary planner.

  • An incredible preserve with a wide variety of plants, trees and flowers. Suggest you tell your driver to take you to the side entrance (rather than the main entrance, which can be very crowded).  more »
