    Tour Highlights
    >>Stone Forest
    >>Stunning Terraced Rice Fields in Yuanyang
    >>Traditional ethnic culture and villages
    >>Unique old towns
    >>The legendary Shangri-la



    Feel free to provide concerns/comments... or if anyone has visited Yunnan for similar interests, it will be greatly appreciate if you can share your experiences. Thanks so much...

    my key interest would be the tribal people and the rice fields... but I am more than happy to be a company for other interesting attractions
