Kunming has the distinction of being one of the country’s most liveable cities with its pleasant climate and laid back vibe. Given the peaceful co-existence of the traditional with the modern here, there are plenty of attractions and activities to suit all types of travelers. While the many museums and landmarks beckon history buffs, ancient temples provide a dose of spirituality. Sprawling parks and tranquil lakes that are home to numerous exotic bird species complete the picture postcard image! Home to the ethnic Yi people, it is common to come upon members of the group dressed in their traditional garb peddling handicrafts and participating in cultural performances. With a smattering of craft breweries and hip bars, there is no dearth of places to unwind at as night falls. Being well-connected to the rest of the country makes this city of eternal spring, as it is also called, the perfect base to explore Yunnan region. A little over an hour’s drive from the city is the Shilin stone forest known for its hauntingly beautiful natural stone pillar formations as well as Jiuxiang Scenic Area with its dam and scenic karst caves.
