After ten days of passing tiny towns and villages I arrived in BaoShan. This was my target town before heading to the myanmarese border. As everywhere in China one can see the contrast between rich/poor and old/new quite clearly.
Many of those big buildings (and they are everywhere) in the background are built and bought as investments. the buyers won't live there but just buy (no mortgage) and wait till the value increases and then sell. Based on China's inevitable expansion it is not the worst idea.
