Introducing Mángshì (Lùxī)
Mángshì is Déhóng’s air link with the outside world. It’s a large, sprawling town and most travellers simply pass through on their way to Ruìlì. But if you’re planning to fly out of Mángshì then you might have to stay overnight here, in which case there are enough things to keep you occupied for an afternoon or so. If you fly in from Kūnmíng there are minibuses running direct from the airport to Ruìlì and your best bet is to jump into one of these and head south.
