Welcome by Yunnan Minority Travel - China
Nice to meet you. Welcome in Yunnan - China. My English name is Sunny. Sunny is my nickname. I am a certified and licensed English-language tour guide. I live in Dali, Yunnan province and belong, like many of the inhabitants of this region, to a minority. My people are the Bai.
I organise and guide travels in Yunnan since 1997. I am enthusiastic, cheerful and I have many years of experience in organizing and guiding of long and short-term travel in China, Yunnan in particular. Besides, I also collaborate with European travel agents and my extensive network of colleagues.
I'm closely working together with Gerard. You can read more about me, Gerard and the advantages of traveling with us.
Please let me help you to make your stay more comfortable and pleasant with my knowledge of the minorities and inhabitants and their culture in this area. I do my best to deliver a high quality service at a friendly price. There are splendid possibilities for trekking around Dali, Lijiang, Zhongdian and Jinghong, opportunities to visit many places of interest, vibrant local markets, Buddhist temples, monasteries and to meet many of the colourful minorities of Yunnan.
There is just so much to see in Yunnan... Lets make a deal: I will give you my suggestions, and you will make your own choices.
Visit Yunnan year round
The climate in Yunnan is both diverse and changeable. For example, in Kunming it always feels like Spring. Though in Dali it is, despite of an altitude of 1950 metres, mostly warmer, but sometimes there is a cool wind. And, in Zhongdian - also called Shangri-La - the sun may be even stronger, but because of the town's altitude of 3200 metres, close to Tibet and the Himalayas, warm clothing is advised for evenings and nights. Yunnan is also very beautiful in wintertime and not cold. Already in January the trees are full of flowers, sometime snow on the mountain tops and in the south of Yunnan it can be already very warm.
