Situated at the end of a 37-kilometers trip down the Lancang River from Jinghong, and covering an area of 50 square kilometers at an altitude of 530 metres (the lowest point of Xishuangbanna), the Ganlan Sandbar derives its name from the fact that its forever clothed in greenery and that it takes the shape of an olive. A total of 64 Dai-inhabited villages are found on the sandbar, and bamboo abodes gleam in the verdure of coconut trees, with water flowing past them all the year round, and flowers in full bloom in all four seasons. Thus the phrase " Bamboo pavilions under coconut trees ". becomes synonymous to the Dai people's dwellings. The Ganlan Sandbar, its tropical landscape looking sylvan in the ethnic Dai tradition, evinces an air of classic sanctity and natural repose.
