Located south of Yunnan, Jiangcheng in the city of Pu’er is the only county bordering Laos and Vietnam in the province, with a 183-kilometer-long borderline. Starting 2009, the biennial sachet-throwing carnival has been alternately held in the three countries.

Throwing sachets is a traditional activity popular in the surrounding areas of the three countries. The colorful rhombic sachets are filled with seeds, cereals or spices and decorated with ribbons. They used to be regarded as a token of love.
