    Cheaper than the Jade Emu and Jade Roo. But still clean and comfortable. Its right next to the Jade roo so you can use their bar as they dont have one yet. Great staff. Seriously the most helpful people you can meet. read my blog on getting the isreali's down the mountain. Olivia and the staff were priceless.

    The Lily Pad Inn was an amazing hostel. The minute we arrived we felt so comfortable and relaxed. The staff there is amazing - so sweet and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and it felt as if you were staying at an old friend's home. The food was also amazing. I've lived in China for two years and I had two of the best dishes I've eaten at this hostel. I should also mention that the cost was so affordable. Thanks for a great stay!

They did however find the "forgeiner cemetery" in Tengchong but it had been looted both during the Cultural Revolution and the Japanese invasion, hence the original grave was impossible to spot. We do know that George Forrests grave is next to the foreign consuls Mr. Littonīs. Litton died about 30 years earlier than Forrest from malaria while coming down from a British expedition up in the Lisu area of Nujiang. An excellent ...

    ... little family hotel that was well cheap (2 quid for a big double room with TV etc - everywhere else in town is the same price for a dorm room) and run by and old couple. Looking at the guestbook it was obvious why it was so cheap as the place was normally only used by Chinese people. The English guy, who lived here teaching English, seemed a bit weird and started talking me through every name on this CD he had just bought. I sort of humored him ...
