    Last Stop: Jinghong, Xishuangbanna // 最后一个目的地:西双版纳景洪

    Hot, tropical, humid, and weary all come to mind when I think of our experience in Jinghong. The city is not a major tourist destination, it seems. The people were not overly friendly towards us. The fruit was extremely fresh, but the city itself didn’t seem to have too much. There is a sizable population of minorities here, mostly Thai (Dai) minority, and the cultural differences are apparent in architecture and food. We probably could have done without this stop, but it was still fun to see. And I got to swim in the Mekong!
