Photographer's Note

This is the White Bamboo Shoot Pagoda of DaMengLong in XiShuangBanna, close to the border with MyanMar. It is probably built in the 13th century.
The Dai people in DaMengLong are more related to Thai people than to the Han Chinese. Their Buddhist religion is quite similar to Thai Buddhism as well. Almost every village has its own temple complex including a pagoda. This white pagoda is one of the most impressive and oldest ones in the region.
