It boasts magnificent natural scenery, countless scenic spots, rich ethnic customs, and touching stories that span over a thousand years, providing a treasure trove for short video creators.

Over the past eight years since the establishment of the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation mechanism, the six countries along its banks have continued to promote the building of a community with a shared future for peace and prosperity, which has become the most dynamic "golden model" of regional cooperation with huge development potential.
