Hekou feels like a brand new town. On the border between Vietnam and China, the city has been relatively under-developed due to Yunnan Province’s poor transportation infrastructure. Now, a new highway linking this border region to Kunming, the provincial capital, and thus also to the rest of China, steady import and export business will make the region grow quickly. No doubt this growth will be accompanied by a rise in drug and sex traffic, as well.
