About Kunming

Throughout the seasons of the year, Kunming is like springtime, leading it to be called "Spring City". For many people who come to Yunnan on holiday, it is their first stop. The nearby Dianchi Lake has 250 kilometers of coastline, all with brilliant natural scenery. There are super-large fresh flower markets. There are also cultural attractions, such as Yunnan University, Yunnan Military Academy, and the former site of Southwest United University. Trying out Kunming snacks, local Yunnan cuisine and wild mushroom hotpot is a must. Every year when winter comes, flocks of black-headed gulls fly here from Siberia; Cuihu Park and Dianchi Lake are good places for bird-watching and bird feeding. The area surrounding Kunming is also very exciting. Dongchuan Red Land is colorful like an oil painting. The Stone Forest has all kinds of different and interestingly shaped rocks. Guandu Ancient Town is also a good place to visit.
