FROM GOLDEN TRIANGLE TO THE COUNTRY OF 12000 RICE FIELDS (SHAN STATE)

As some pretend, the territory of ‘Sip Song Pan Na’ is the home land of ‘Tai Leu’ ethnic. An ethnic minority originating from a region bordering Southern China, North of Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar.

 

Sip Song Pan Na means 12000 rice fields or 12 rice producers district (Traditional way of estimating the extend of a territory in Northern Thailand). The most Southern district of Yunnan province in China is rightly called Xishuangbanna.

 

NSTRAVEL brings you to the part of this mythic territory located in Shan State of Myanmar (Home land of the ‘Tai Yai’). It was once attached to the old Lanna Kingdom (1.000.000 rice fields). You will visit local ethnic villages still living as before, in a very gorgeous environment. The region seems to be frozen in an undetermined past, as forgotten by modes and time. This rural region is very beautiful and preserved.
