This tour of the tropical parts of Yunnan explores the ancient trading town of Tengchong near the historic "Burma Road" in an area of outstanding beauty blistered with volcanoes and hot springs; and the Southeast Asian region of Xishuangbanna in the deep South, rich in colourful minority villages and lush rainforests. The tour also includes time to relax and soak up the old-world atmosphere in the ancient towns of Dali and Lijiang, and an overnight stay in a traditional Yunnan village.
