Ruili (瑞丽; Ruìlì) is a city in Yunnan, South-West China, on the border with Myanmar.

Get in

Dehong Mangshi Airport (LUM), with connections to Kunming, is the closest airport.

Get around




This town is located at the Chinese-Burmese border. There is much trade in imported goods, notably jade and fabrics. Wooden furniture (sourced from Burmese logs) are also widely available. Cheap souvenirs can also be bought from travelling Burmese merchants in the city, or by the sizeable number of other foreigners present in the city such as Pakistanis and Indians.




There is a large number of hotels in Ruili. However, hotels in the city are surprisingly expensive, compared even to provincial capitals. There seem to be no places below 300 Yuan.

  • Jing Cheng hotel - reputed to be the best hotel in the city as well as being housed in the city's tallest tower. The city's only 4-star hotel but in reality feels more like a 2 or 3 star hotel. Breakfast provided is very limited to local cuisine.
