Kunming

Vacationers searching for an excellent range of scenic and historical sights will love Kunming.

Visitors to this area of Yunnan will be sharing space with around 3,900,000 local residents.

It is situated roughly 50 miles east of Lufeng County and 1,250 mile southwest of the national capital of Beijing.

Bring the family to Haigeng Training Base, an ideal place to have some quality time with the little ones.

If you're into native and exotic animals, put the Kunming Zoo on your trip list. Be sure to ask at the entrance about hands-on activities and where to find the zoo's most popular specimens.

Enjoy the striking array of native and exotic specimens on display at the Bonsai Garden and the Kunming Botanical Garden.

When it's time for a break, grab some lunch and find a shady corner at one of the scenic green spaces, such as Daguan Park and Green Lake Park. You'll also find plenty of room to lie around on the grass at Zhuantang Park and Guanshang Park.

Lakes almost always entice a wide range of critters. Take a pair of binoculars to Cuihu Park or Baiyukou Lake and see what you can spy. If that fails, maybe your luck will change at Dian Lake or Kunming Bright Moon Lake.

Want to escape the noise of the city? Head out to Stone Forest and Western Hills Reserve. An Ning Spring and Jinfang Forest Hot Springs are also popular among nature-loving travelers.

The Yunnan Railway Museum is a great place where inquisitive minds can go to learn and get inspired. Explore the building and grounds, see the highlights and be sure to ask the staff about any special events.

Step inside the science world and head over to the CaoPu SheQu KePu Zhan or the YunNanSheng KeXue JiShuGuan. Expand your mind as you wander through the stimulating collection of artifacts being exhibited. The Kunming Science Museum and the YunNanSheng KePu ShiFan JiDi are two more great options worth checking out if you have extra time.

Our world is a weird and wonderful place. If you're mad enough to disagree, a day spent at the Chengjiang Fossils and the Mt. Maotian Fossils ought to be enough to convince you. The thought-provoking specimens and curiosities at the Yunnan Geological Museum are also worth taking a look at.

Immerse yourself in a world of symbolism and creativity at the TC/G Nordica.

The Yunnan Provincial Museum provides visitors with a refreshing look at our long and rich history. If you like that, you should also take a look at the interesting objects on display at the Yunnan Provincial Museum and the YunNan MinZu DaXue XiaoShiGuan.

To find out more about the events and people who shaped this place, consider visiting its historic structures and monuments. Commence your history tour at West Pagoda or East Pagoda. When it comes to days of old, there's always more to discover. Chengjiang Fossil Site and Nie'er Tomb are also great places to stop by.

The area's spiritual side can be glimpsed at the Yuantong Si and the Qiongzhu Si. You may also like to have a walk around the Biyun Temple or the Nancheng Mosque.

Kunming's most popular sights can overshadow its lesser-known, but equally fascinating activities. Jinfang Hot Spring and the NanYang HuaQiao JiGong KangRi ShiJi ChenLieShi might be just what you're after. Also, think about visiting Luchong Scenic Resort and Xipu Park if you have time.
