  • Ruili Street Market 

 

Ruili street Market themselves are wonderful and strang , filled with Burmese hustlers , Mandalay rum , elephant's trunk in slices (dried ) , python skins , tortoise shells , bear's gall , false pearls , swords , prostitutes and betel-nut sellers . Culture seems to be at a low ebb in this kind of town , though there is energy , plenty of fun and good feeling for those who are open to the rag tag mix of people who have come here to seek their fortunes .

  • Nongan Golden Duck Temple  

      A short ride to the south-west of town , the Golden Duck Temple is an attractive stupa in a courtyard . It is said to have been established to mark the arrival of a pair of golden ducks that brought good fortune to what was previously an uninhabited marshy area .

  • Jiegao Border Check point 

    Continue straight ahead from the Golden Duck Temple , cross the Myanmar bridge over the Ruili River and you will come to Jiegao , a little thumb of land jutting into Myanmar that serves as the main checkpoint for a steady stream of cross-border traffic . There's not a lot to see . But you can still marvel at how laid back everything seems on both sides of the quite literally-bamboo curtain and other sordid dens of iniquity line the streets of both sides of the border , and in one case apparently right on the border .
