City Park
Senem AkarsuManting Park was a wonderful experience. I would suggest that you spend a few hours walking around in the park and possibly bring something to lay on by the lake in the park to enhance your visit. I would recommend that you visit all of the locations within the park, as the temples are beautiful. There is also a bonfire show that takes places at the entrance of the park. Dinner is provided, which was the local food from the Dai ethnic minorities. The majority of the show takes place as you are eating your dinner, so remember to pay attention. It is a show of dancing, singing and acting performances. I bought the second class ticket to the show from the ticket booth right outside the entrance on the right.

Ancient Villages
_We***78The botanical garden and the Yi garden were very fun, the guide Xiaohu service was very good, very knowledgeable about the plants, I didn't know what the plants were respectively without her explanation, thank you very much. The Yi village looked forward to life, so it was a bit impressive, but it was still a bit different to see it, it was really a quiet life.

National Park
GerryOnTourTropical seasonal rain forest in Xishuangbanna is one of the most species-rich forest ecosystems in China. This area is also one of the biodiversity hotspot for conservation priorities of the world. You can walk to the attractions or take the shuttle bus. The first attraction is the culture dance show followed by feeding peacocks, good for kids. After that my favorite part, the water splashing with an elephant. It was really great fun, lots of music and fun, nobody got too rough especially with older people. After that you can take a walk through the forest, I saw a small green snake, countless spiders, butterflies and caterpillars. You can use the rope bridges to walk on the forest canopy and kids can do some overpriced ziplining. It was truly a great fun day.

Tianshan Xueling Spruce Forest: A Poetic Vision of Landscape Painting A great green wall built along the mountain, Tianshan Xueling Spruce Forest lies on the southern slope of Tianshan in Xinjiang Province, along the western portion of the Kunlun Mountains and Junggar Mountains. During the summer, Tianshan’s light green grasslands turn a dark green and the scattered houses and beautiful clouds complement one another as if in a landscape oil painting. As you take in the view, you’ll be able to feel a pleasant breeze caress your face and hear the pleasant sound of singing birds.

It is also a kingdom for natural life, with a wide variety of animal and plant resources, many of which are rare and endangered species.
