Default To clodreno: getting to Banna

From Kunming the trip to Jinghong, the "capital" of Xishuangbanna, is either a 40 minute flight, or an 18 to 22 hour bus ride! 18 to 22 because they never know just how shitty the roads are going to be. Travelling with two kids; would you like to bet if we flew or rode?

If you ever go to Jinghong, go to Mei Mei Cafe. the food is very good, the beer is served in chilled glass mugs and the owner, Orchid Zhang, is a wealth of knowledge and contacts. She has good English, is funny, friendly and can fix up hotels, guides, and drivers. There is also an excellent travellers tips book there filled by people coming and going from Laos and Myanmar.
