We are excited to announce a new 'getaway' series of trips starting with Tropical Xishuangbanna in the south of Yunnan. The formula is simple -  dial up the fun and dial down the hard core 'frontier' cycling. More chill, less watts and plenty of time to immerse yourself in the local culture. Perfect for partners and those looking for an easier trip to build up to one of our 'frontier' adventures.

This region of China is noted for its distinct culture, one unlike that of the Han Chinese. The people, architecture, and food more closely resemble those of the Shan, Dai and Tai peoples of nearby Thailand and Lao. The area is located in the South end of Yunnan so expect a more tropical climate making it an ideal destination in winter.  So let Serk take you out of deep winter to this tropical paradise for a 7 day getaway!

Get ready for some eye waveringly delicious local Yunnan Cuisine. You'll want to keep your photo stops to a minimum so you are first to arrive at the dinner table!
