Beihai State-Protected Wetland
The Beihai swamp is a nationally protected wetland. The broad expanse of paddyfields, lakes, bamboo-made bridges and little boats sliding along the river create a quiet and peaceful scene.
The lake surfaces are covered by a one-meter-thick grass flourishing with many wild flowers, but don't be deceived by the flat grass; the water beneath is about seven meters deep. Try boating and fishing on the river instead as a good way to relax.
Admission Fee: 20 yuan
Transportation: The wetlands are 12 kilometers away from the county. A minibus costs five yuan per person. It is an approximately 20-minute long bus ride.
Heshun Township is a well-known hometown for many overseas Chinese. The resulting hybrid culture makes it a great choice for visitors touring Tengchong.
Transportation: Heshun is only four kilometers away from Tengchong. Hiring a taxi costs 10 yuan.
Lodging: It is quite cheap to stay in Heshun; rooms cost about 10 to 20 yuan per night.
