Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web
The word tropical paradise comes to mind at Sipsongpanna Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences, with over 35,000 species of tropical plants. Wind through the huge park, admire tall palm trees, lakes, orchids, pine forests, and many other species native to Southern China. As you enter the jungle section, you'll feel like you're in a different time. Options for getting around include taking an electric trolley with a guide, or doing the tour alone with a map to navigate the park. Walking trails are well maintained and info boards come in English. Because of the dense foliage, bring mosquito repellent. Keep in mind that smoking inside trolleys is permitted. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Mengla County holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Sipsongpanna Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
