Hey again,

I'm considering Xishuangbanna for a future trip.

What are the best-priced, A/C, single or dorm in:

1) Jinghong
2) and the outlying towns (i.e. Menghla, Menghun, Ganbala, etc...)

Accommodation in Yunnan, China is definitely more expensive than other countries in SE Asia. In places like Jinghong/Menghla etc you can find yourself paying upwards of US20 dollars for a decent room (as opposed to US5-7 elsewhere in the region).

Chinese hotels do tend to have a number or very cheap rooms, usual out back away from the main hotel. These tend to be used by travelling Chinese workers. They can be very cheap, however you might think twice about paying 5 dollars for a room with broken windows, bed sheets that look like they've never encountered water and a toilet consisting of a bucket on the floor. Think prison cell and you'll get the picture.

On the other hand for 20-25 dollars you can get a room that's surprisingly luxurious.
