Photographer's Note

Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is located in Menglun Town, Mengla County, 40 kilometers east from Jinghong, in Yunnan. It was established in 1959 under the leadership of Prof. Cai Xitao an eminent Chinese botanist. After more than 50 years of development, it has become a comprehensive botanical garden involved in scientific research, plant diversity conservation and public science education.
It's the largest botanical garden in China, 1,100 ha. More than 13,000 species of tropical and subtropical plants from China and abroad. There is also a natural tropical rainforest in the garden.
The garden has two electric cart routes, Western Area and Green Stone Forest, 11 km and 26 km respectively.
I explored it by walking and also by taking an electric cart. Travelling in Xishuangbanną you have plenty of possibilities to do trekking thru real amazing tropical rain forests and you can spent one full day looking around in this Botanical Garden.
Nature is the top.
