 - especially for you

Spend the day as you wish. Some suggestions from our side, in which we are happy to assist:
* Yuantong Temple: With a history of more than 1,200 years, Yuantong Temple is the grandest and most important Buddhist temple in Yunnan Province. For more information, see Kunming's highlights.
kunming2* Kunming flower and bird market: The most obvious stalls begin where Wuyi Road meets Dongfeng West Road but other sellers can be found on other streets within the district. Very centrally situated within the area bounded by Dongfeng West Road, Wuyi Road, Renmin Road and Zhengyi Road.
* A visit to the Green Lake Park, also referred to as Kunming's Eye, might fill you with new and fresh energy. The park has an important social function to Kunming's city dwellers. Many people stroll around the park, but especially welcoming is the sound of music, and the dancing and singing people. Nearby is also the old University of Kunming and an entertaining shopping district. For dinner, there are a number of good restaurants and tea shops near the lake. The northern end is close to Wenlin Street, a street with many restaurants.
* Western Mountain Forest Reserve: The forest reserve on the west bank of the Dianchi Lake (just south of Kunming) consists of the Huating, Taihua and Luohan Mountains, which extend for more than 40 kilometers at an altitude of 2,500 meters.
