D10, Jianshui-Yuanyang Terraced Fields Sunset (120km)
In this trip, the most surprising thing is this place. Tickets are discounted by 30% because there is one missing viewing spot, no bus shuttle, no additional charges, absolutely humane. If the schedule is reasonable, you can basically see all the highlights within 24 hours.
First, let me explain the general order to the judges. It is recommended to choose the accommodation on the leftmost side of the map. Then began the “hard” filming process.
(Note the filming times identified by each dot.)
weather is king
Two days, character 80 points
Take pictures of this place, you need to pay attention to safety
Yellow jacket, flamboyant
There are so many people taking pictures, post a few photos of “people”
forced helpless posture
No drone, no tripod, no filter! ! ! I blame myself
Even if it is a mobile phone, it is also “dedicated”
I don’t have the desire to shoot anymore
Finally, you still need to “install”.
TIPS: Filmmaking basically depends on the following three elements, remember!
1. Choose the right time. It must be around the Spring Festival, when terraced fields store water;
2. Get up early and get dark. You must go out around 5:00 in the morning, otherwise you will not be able to get a good seat;
3. Perfect character. If you have achieved the above two points, then it depends on the face of God.
(If you want to save tickets, you can choose some viewing platforms of wild terraces or take a slight detour to some small mountain roads before entering the scenic spot)
D11, Yuanyang Morning Shooting – Green Village (100km)
After completing the 3-day pure filming task, starting today I will enter the process of “seeking the winding path”.
Maybe the past few days went too well, so I will give you an embarrassment when you go out today. It took only 1.5 hours to drive on the provincial highway before encountering road repairs caused by landslides. It is said that it will take 4-5 hours. Well, please wait patiently… It’s just that the plan to rush to Jiangcheng County will be in vain.
The landslide is terrible
The most unlucky thing is that I actually ranked first! ! !
Finally opened the traffic after 3 hours. (If you take a detour, 3 hours is not enough, thank you for your decision)
It is really not easy for the local villagers, and a “city” can be created on the top of the mountain.
This National Highway 219 has been with me all the way since Dongxing.
This road… this is not the worst.
I saw a small field along the road, so I had to play a little bit.
I really want to go down to the river
He couldn’t make it to Jiangcheng, so he could only stay in Luchun County temporarily.
D12. Lvchun-Baka Port-Mannai Village Bianmin Port-Yiwu-Menghan Town (280km)
Start the journey early in the morning. After leaving Luchun, after passing Jiangcheng, you can basically see banana forests all over the mountains and plains.
Turn on the small road and arrive at Baka (also known as Mengkang), you must punch in as a souvenir. This is an important port on the China-Laos border, second only to Mohan. But it looked so deserted.
Meng Nai, this place is only 1 km away from the border point, and there is no border guard station, only this checkpoint on the road. I really want to go to the border point to have a look, but unfortunately, it is only open to border residents with a pass. You are not even allowed to take pictures, you can only secretly take two pictures and leave.
The border guards were very polite, and they were also very curious to see us driving here from Shanghai. After chatting for 5 minutes, I left depressed.
Seeing this, we can basically confirm that we have entered the boundary of Xishuangbanna.
Bananas are everywhere along the road. (As long as there is a package, you must not touch it)
Just discarded, eat that fresh. Hahaha, it’s really delicious!
There are banana farmers harvesting and boxing on the mountain road
An acre of banana grove can produce 10,000 catties a year, which sounds good, but the banana farmers can only harvest about 10,000 yuan. (The shipping price of such a good banana is only 1.25 yuan/catties.) After chatting with the simple banana farmer, the banana farmer also gave me a big bunch, which weighed 7-8 catties. It’s embarrassing.
The way is Yiwu, and the sky is getting dark. Yiwu, the origin of ancient tree tribute tea. The town is quite big, but not many people come. I found a tea shop at random, tasted a few brews, and decided to start after bargaining.
Hurry up, today’s destination is Menghan (Xishuangbanna Folk Village)
Finally, we left the endless mountain roads, took the 10-kilometer highway, and arrived in Menghan soon.
D13-15, Menghan Town-Jinghong-Daluo Port (300km) (Successfully completed the border exploration of the three countries)
Open the window of the inn, the morning glow, coconut groves, mist, and Dai-style overhanging eaves outline a tropical rainforest landscape.

The ancient banyan tree and the coconut grove complement each other
Burmese cars parked in their yard
Being a monk is also very hard, it’s only 7 o’clock!
a tower holding a tree
Buddhist temple wall
After walking around, I finally saw the whole picture of the hotel where I lived.
Jackfruit can be seen everywhere in the yard
The biggest highlight of the Folk Village is that the Songkran Festival in the form of performances is coming, and you will lose if you don’t watch it.
beauty all wet
The participation of tourists is still quite strong. (Once inquired, participants have to pay separately )
End, next stop: Jinghong
Tip: There is nothing special in the Folk Village, and tickets are also charged. If you come from the direction of Jinghong, this place can be used as a scenic spot for a stroll. (or don’t use it at all, hahaha)
More than half of the time has passed, and our leisurely rhythm is destined to fail to reach the farthest point of this time, Tengchong. (It seems that Tengchong can only be left to Bingchacha) In this case, there is no need to “run wild”, and simply have a good time in Jinghong for two days. This is a place for vacation.
The landmark building looks so similar to the Lao characters
Since it’s a vacation, I have to pick a slightly decent hotel. The inertia made me stay here for 3 nights.
(Resort hotels are basically concentrated in Gaozhuang)
Buddha and pagoda are the only theme of this city.
Okay, just a few pictures of landmark buildings is enough. Anyway, I didn’t buy a ticket, and I gained a lot. (I’m here for vacation, not to visit scenic spots. Hahaha)
No tickets, no queues, just wander leisurely in the streets and alleys of Gaozhuang, looking for a few pleasant shops, quietly avoiding the scorching afternoon sun; a cup of tea, a plate of fruit or a cigarette … Hahaha, the description is not bad. Anyway, it is much better than queuing up and crowding around the scenic spot.
Need to escape the heat in winter
20:00, the sun finally set. The excitement here has just begun. Finally, I saw the most spectacular night market (no one), eat more, buy more!
The night market located in the Shwedagon Pagoda in Gaozhuang, you can’t stop eating and shopping.
There is even a floating market
You must not miss the Internet celebrity Manfeilong roast chicken, and pineapple rice is also a favorite
Here are the most colors you can see…
There is also the favorite [Fruit Market] for foodies
Of course, our purpose is not to enjoy the food and sunshine in front of us! What we are most looking forward to in Jinghong is still the “border tour”.
We set off early in the morning and rushed to the “Daluo Port” on the China-Myanmar border. This will be the last point of our border tour.
The location that must be clocked in
After passing through the back door, it is the border of Myanmar.
Strictly speaking, the Myanmar side of Daluo Port belongs to the Fourth Special Zone of Myanmar, which is the non-government-controlled area of Myanmar. I spent 50 yuan and found a “guide” at the port, a beautiful college student born in the 2000s, who led me out of the Chinese border and walked around the border.
Here, passports and visas are all invalid! (Local border residents can freely enter and exit the Fourth Special Zone with a valid pass)
During the winter vacation, freshman students braved the high temperature of more than 30 degrees to work part-time jobs. (Is this winter vacation?) Hee hee
This area belongs to the so-called “Golden Triangle” area. Through other aspects of understanding, this area is not the “chaos and violence” we imagined. The “government” of the Fourth Special Administrative Region still attaches great importance to protecting the safety of Chinese citizens. (Details.. The old rules ask Du Niang for advice) Hahaha
Considering that the vehicle can only penetrate a few kilometers into Myanmar and must return on the same day, the plan to enter Myanmar by vehicle was abandoned.

Vehicles on the Myanmar side
Brothers who smoke, remember to buy some cigarettes at the duty-free shop at the checkpoint when you leave. (This is a real duty-free shop)
On the way, I met a gathering of ethnic minorities: Hani Dangcang Climbing Festival! Once a year, very lively. I was also fortunate enough to be invited to have dinner together, but unfortunately I had to wait for 2 hours, so I had to give up.
I found a local, but because of my accent, I couldn’t figure out the origin of this “Dangcang Climbing” festival after asking for a long time.
Looking at the posture, it is celebrating the anniversary of the establishment of the local ethnic group. (Ask the judge who knows the details to give an answer)
Thousands of people dinner, spectacular ah! It’s a pity that we couldn’t have a drink at the same table.
Banquet is simple,
but the ceremony is grand
It seems that these beauties are the protagonists of this event
Mobile phone shooting, do not spray Austria!
After passing the China-Myanmar First Village Scenic Area, of course, this must be a “detour”. Hahaha found a pond next to it, which is also a pretty good inn. Seems like something to shoot…
Large lotus, lush
On the return journey, the original plan was to go to Manwa Village along the border path back to the Bada River from Daluo. But after only walking a few kilometers, the road became smaller and more rugged. Seeing that it was too late, I had no choice but to give up.
Although the goal was not achieved, the mood was still bright. Let’s play along the way.
dare not pick
Back on the national road again, suddenly the wind was strong, the sky was full of wind and sand, and it rained like a torrential rain. (It’s been raining for the first time since I’ve been out for more than ten days)
weird weather phenomenon
After only 5 minutes of rain, the sun came out. Double rainbow! pretty!
The car is not driving, let’s watch the rainbow, hahaha
There is no evil spirit! Suddenly remembered a line of lyrics: the sun is always after the storm
So far, the third task has been completed: wandering around the borders of the three countries in southern Xinjiang.
The basic task has been completed, but it is a pity that Mohan and Tengchong did not arrive! During the process of entering the city, I saw a policeman take out a 2-foot-long curved machete from the back box of a police car. Just as he was secretly admiring the “mighty” of the local policeman, the policeman rushed towards a car with the machete in his hand. A fallen tree blocking the way. It turned out that he was going to clear the roadblock. (I didn’t have time to take a photo) Judging from this, there are often “demon winds” visiting the local area.
Go back to town and continue wandering.
The sculpture with the most local characteristics, the more it looks more like Thai style
Bunches of bananas can also be seen in temples
this one feels good
I don’t know what the locals pick on the trees? After asking for a long time, the mandarin that makes people sweat!
Great Buddha Temple, look at it from a distance.
Lao license plates that are often seen on the streets
And Myanmar license plate
We are about to leave this beautiful city and enjoy another musical dinner. Just take it as an “advertisement”, because I think it is too cost-effective. This is a city where you can find exotic customs, but Chinese elements can be found everywhere. This is a city that is developing rapidly, but still allows you to calm down and live leisurely. This is a city that was originally planned to stay for only one night, but ended up staying for three consecutive days. okay! stop talking! ! You have to rush home to send your son to school! ! !
The food is delicious, the environment is beautiful, the price is fair, and the resident singing is awesome! (This restaurant should give me some advertising fees, hee hee)
