Mangshi is a relatively small city close to the border of Myanmar. Located an hour flight from Kunming and approx. 5 hours drive from Dali and 7 from Lijiang. The area is well known for their agricultural sub tropical environment. You find the local market, villages and 100% local culture. The modernization can be seen and felt but around the corner you merge immediately with the old and still existing traditions. The beauty and pureness of Mangshi and its surroundings are still unknown to many people but so easy accessible for you by airport or bus.
