New Tai Garden Hotel
TravelPod Member ReviewsNew Tai Garden Hotel Jinghong
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 On the plus side although not as convenient as you are led to believe the "place" is clean but old and out of date.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.

Post-meal, the younger brother asked if we could ride a motorcycle. I half lied, saying, “yes, I’ve ridden before”. I had, but mainly dirtbikes and mopeds—I wasn’t sure how legit this thing would be. He said I was too heavy to ride with him (he was quite pudgy), so Alexi and him shared a motorcycle while I had my own. I tried to act the ...

So, I did and then went out for dinner again with Jon when he came back from his previous meal which had apparently been disgusting. Xishuangbanna did not have the best food. I think Jon survived off ice cream for several days. We went back to that same cafe and ordered a bottle of wine... after only tea and beer for ...

In the hot areas, the men think nothing more than to hoist their shirts or T-shirts up exposing their bellies. It is quite off putting sometimes!!

All in all China has been a great experience and I am glad I have been able to see a part of it that not many tourists do.
The Worst Hotel in Jinghong
We were making great time and then traffic came to a halt. So many cars buses and trucks were trying to get to Jinghong that the freeway couldn’t handle us all. At 4:30 we crawled along with the congested traffic into Jinghong.
Someone had given Jacky the business card of a hotel in Jinghong and he phoned as we drove and asked if they had room for us. ...
