Hekou lies at the junction site of Nanxi River and Honghe River and is only 76m above sea level. Being separated from Vietnam by a river, it has been a vital passage on Southwest Silk Road through ages. On the Yunnan-Vietnam Railways' running in 1910, it became a crucial access from China to go to the world. Looking around from the top of the town, one can see the railway-bridge and the highway-bridge link China and Vietnam closely.
On the newly built bridge on China-Vietnam Highway are crowded dealers living on the border and tourists coming and leaving. The busy and lively spectacle is really surprising.
