Ganlanba (Menghan)

Xishuangbanna, China

If you are in the Xishuangbanna County of Yunnan Province, China you must not miss visiting the Ganlanba (Menghan) area. This is picturesque plain in the Mekong River basin and is full of rice paddies, coconut palms, oil palms, and bamboos. The distant mountains provide the perfect backdrop for this picture-perfect scenery. Also called the Ganlan (Olive) Sandbar, the region is shaped like a large olive and is always full of greenery, hence the name! The Dai ethnic minority groups who live in the villages sustain themselves with farming and fishing and live in harmony with nature. Their sticky rice and fish stew are definitely worth a try.
