Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden is located in Menglun Town, Mengla County, Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture. The Luosuo River, a branch of the Mekong River - Lancang River, known as Asian Danube, suddenly turns here, creating a picturesque gourd-shaped peninsula, on which this botanical garden is located. Established in 1959, this garden has an area of more than 1,100 hectares and more than 13,000 kinds of plants.

With a warm climate, this garden stays in spring all the year round, characterized by verdant trees, green grass, blossoms and fruits, especially the grand scene of plank buttresses root, old stalk of flowers, strangling, one-tree forest and hanging garden and other tropical rainforest wonders. In late spring and early summer, the night will be dotted with numerous fireflies echoing with the starry sky, creating a fairyland.

With its tropical flowers, beautiful scenes, intense ethnic flavour and rich scientific substance, the Garden has been designated as a national-level tourist scenic spot since 1991, and now receives 250000-300000 tourists a year. A tourist souvenir market and the Cultural Museum of Forest Ethnobotany have been built, with the audio-video Biodiversity Exhibition Hall and other scheduled to be constructed, to meet the increasing demand of tourism.
