Day 1: Airport Kunming - Jianshui

jianshui3The driver and guide (if you wish to travel with one) will meet you at the Kunming airport. They are waiting for you with a billboard with your name on it.

Day 2: Hunting in Jianshui - TuanShan

jianshui5In the morning you visit a Zhu family House, the ancient North gate and Confusius temple, all on walking distance from your hotel.
 In the afternoon we drive in approximately 20 minutes to visit Tuanshan, a village founded in the Qing Dynasty. Visiting the village is like traveling to another China. Small, cobbled lanes and old women with bound feet leave you with impressions of timelessness. Besides this, the village has a lot to offer, such as art and architecture. The village might fill you with the impression that is neglected and deserted, as it is quietly moving along at its own pace. We also visit the ancient Double Dragon Bridge.In various villages there are several small factories. We visit one where they manufacture the famous Jianshui pots. Other interesting villages ae also on our list, since we guide you to one with an ancient waterwell that is still in use, and one with a tofu-factory.
After a fullfilling day, it is time to drive you back to your hotel in Jianshui.

Day 5: Yuangyang - Kunming

On our long drive back to Kunming, you will visit Tonghai. A welcome intermission in Yunnan Province's only Mongol village. The villagers are descendants from Kublai Khan's army, who once ruled the biggest empire in the world. It is very quiet in this village and some doors are marked by the Yin and Yang symbols. Only elderly still wear traditional clothing, whom you might meet around the central square. Despite the long drive, it's as comfortable as possible, since we mainly take the highway.
We will drop you in Kunming hotel, airport, (express) bus station or train station.
