Kunming

Kunming is located in southwestern China, and is the largest city in Yunnan Province.

The city is rapidly developing, with numerous highways and modern buildings, but it also has historic areas that retain their charm.

Kunming is known in China as the City of Eternal Spring for its pleasant year-round climate – a result of its location at an almost-tropical latitude but with a 2000 m (6600 ft) altitude.

Kunming also serves as a hub from which to explore other parts of Yunnan Province – one of China’s most scenic and culturally diverse regions.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Guandu (Old Town)

Guandu is a 'new-old' area of southern Kunming, in many ways like a small slice of the old towns of Lijiang or Dali. In addition to beautiful classical architecture (the vast majority of it built in recent years), the area houses four temples (the largest one is the Guandu Shaolin Temple, parks, pavilions and bridges, souvenir stalls, and abundant shops and restaurants. The action is centered on the square around the ancient Varja Pagoda, where the parks and most of the temples can be found.
