Summer of 2009: Mengding 3

Dai people live in warm and wet areas. The climate contributes a lot not only to their wealthy lives, but also to the good environment around their villages. Dai people love nature very much. In old times they live in bamboo houses. Although now they build with bricks and cement, every family still own a yard with their houses. In the yard the plant all kinds of fruits, beans, melons, flowers and trees. Amount the plants fly all kind of butterflies and bees. How I wish I had such a garden!

Now let's see what Dai people have in their garden?

  1. Simply lovely, I too wish I had a garden such as these. Our cold winter months don't allow for such lovely tropical plants.

  2. Beautiful, Mingfei! I don't recognize the fruit(?) in the third pic...and the white flower with the red on top is so pretty!
    How far North do the Dai people live? If you mention some wellknown big city in that region, I'll google it:)

  6. Wow Wow Wow, Mingfei, can you believe it. In my next post I'm going to cover most of the pictures from this post, I captured them in my hometown a few months back.It's unbelievable that so far down in China, the same flowers and vegetation are existing, the same way it does here in North-Eastern India. Loved this post Mingfei. Please keep in touch to see my next post, even you will find it strange when you'll see the similar pictures.

    The fruit is sweetsop.
    You can google "Ruili 瑞丽"or"Xishuangbanna 西双版纳" in Yunnan. These are the place where the most Dai people in China live.
