Thai Garden (Daiyuan) Hotel, very nice property but a little tricky. NO ENGLISH SPOKEN HEAR. They have 2 hotels there one is called the Tai Garden and the other is called the New Tai Garden Hotel. One they say is rated as a 5 star and the other a 4 star. However the pictures on all the advertisements mixes the best of each and worst of all they book you into their 3rd hotel which is a 3 star at best but really a no star. There are about 75 rooms there with no lobby or help, you book into the 4 star then walk about a block away. It is much older and has no internet. The rooms are clean but all the things they tell you such as breakfast, business center, etc are all at the other place. There are no restaurants at any although they say they have them. On the plus side although not as convenient as you are led to believe the "place" is clean but old and out of date. For the price in this area it is a little high for what you get. But like I said the worst is being misled by the pictures. Make sure when you book you are in one of the "main" hotels and the room has internet. Near the front gate which is about 200 meters from the hotel to your left as you go out is a pretty good local Thai style restaurant.

... by a lady who got on just outside the city centre carrying a big jute bag. The driver told her to put it in the boot but she persisted in heaving it into the bus and leaving it in the doorway while she went to find a seat. By this time the driver was getting quite irate, and it took virtually every other passenger chanting in chorus "Put it in the boot! Put it in the boot!" to persuade her to move it.
She got back on the bus with a small box with holes in it. Out ...
... oldest dating back to 800). The other 2 pagodas are octagonal and 42 metres high.
We found ourselves a proper coffee overlooking the South Gate with its wonderful views and later managed to catch the Catholic church open.
Time to drive through Yunnan province to the beautiful Old China style town of Lijiang, capital of the Naxi Kingdom. The Naxi are another of China’s minority groups, descended from a race of Tibetan nomads who settled in the region some time ...
... minority groups. The one child policy is still in place in China, but minority groups are permitted to have two. We're still seeing the little rotary hoe type trucks and there still looks to be quite a lot of manual labour in the fields. Our overnight stop was Shangjiang, by a park and a river. The river and bridge were lit up and looked very pretty at night. One of our tea dishes tonight was egg and tomato which we all enjoyed.
... seemed much more open than mainland China. We got out, hoping this would just be a protected land we could roam around in. Of course not; where there's money to be made, China makes it. The cost was an annoying 65rmb, and we decided to skip the other 40rmb to take the lazy car around to the attractions. The car, anyways, drove past one of the first attractions, an extremely long staircase leading to a mini Buddhist temple for one to pray. We headed up there and once at the ...
We have just returned from a four day trek south of Jinghong, near the Laos/Myanmar border. We met Sara, our guide from Forest Cafe, at the bus station, and took a public bus to Galanba, on a mostly dirt road. After checking out the local market, and having a meal, we met up with Londoners, Gabby and Christian. Two private cars took us through banana plantations to the Mekong River, where we waited for our ferry. It was a gorgeous boat trip down the Mekong for over an hour.
