In Jinghong, there is a part of the Mekong River that we always love to go to but that’s being renovated now. There’s a convenient swimming pool and water park that’s now demolished so it’s good that we went there as much as we could before the wrecking ball came. There’s a part where people flew remote-controlled airplanes that’s now boarded up. So we ventured into another part of the river and were pleasantly surprised that it’s even more idyllic than our former favorite. Big stones to sit on and ponder, grass to lie on and slumber and the perfect bike path that becomes a boardwalk on another side where bikes are not allowed but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying a perfect afternoon.
