This Dai Minority People’s Autonomous Prefecture covers an area of approximately 19,700 sq. km and is home to a cultural mix of 994,000 people,  about 30% are Dai, 29% are Han and the rest is a mixture of ethnic minorities such as Hani, Bulang, Lahu, Jinuo, Yi, Wa, Bai and Yao people. They all have their own customs which makes Xishuangbanna a very colourful and interesting place to visit. It's also home for some of the best festivals in China including the Dai New Year Festival (Water Splashing Festival).
