China is massive, so in spite of how dramatically tourist arrivals have been spiking the past several years, it’s understandable why so many foreign visitors stick to the well trodden path: Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an,..!
But why don’t you get out of your comfort zone once, venture southwestward on your next trip to China and discover new cuisine, laid-back charm, lovely parks, and so much more!
Why should you visit Kunming?
Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, is known as ‘the City of Eternal Spring’ for its pleasant climate and flowers that bloom all year long.
With a history of more than 2,400 years, it was the gateway to the celebrated Silk Road that facilitated trade with Tibet, Sichuan, Myanmar, India and beyond. Today it is the provincial political, economical and cultural center of Yunnan as well as the most popular tourist destination in southwest China.
The city center is an attraction with its two squares (Jinma Biji Square, Dongfeng Square) and five intersecting roads (Dongfeng Road, Jinbi Road, Zhengyi Road, Renmin Road and Qingnian Road). Of these, Jinma Biji Square (also known as Jinbi Square) has the most eye-catching archways and stylish architectures. Qingnian Road, Zhengyi Road and Renmin Road are the main commercial areas.
The most popular pedestrian streets are Nanping Street, Jingxing Flowers & Birds Market, and Jinma Biji Fang. The city is also the focal point of Yunnan minority culture. Some 26 ethnic minorities such as Yi, Bai, Miao, Dai, and Hani inhabit this region.
Dining: In addition to attractive scenic spots, Kunming is also renowned for its many delicious dishes. Due to the multicultural nature of the province, the city brings together the most representative food of the various nationalities residing in Yunnan, so eating here is an experience not to be missed. The famous food includes Steaming-Pot Chicken, Across Bridge Rice Noodles, and Xuanwei Ham. The night market is the best place to sample and enjoy the local snacks.
Climate: Kunming is located in the low-latitude monsoon climate zone, with warm and comfortable weather throughout the year. It is never too cold in winter nor too hot in summer, and flowers bloom all year round, thus Kunming is given the nickname “Spring City”.
Transportation: With convenient transport links in and out of the city, Kunming welcomes and sees off tens of thousands of visitors every day. As southwest China’s transportation hub, the city plays a significant role for connecting Southeast Asia and China. The city also provides links to many popular destinations elsewhere in Yunnan such as Dali, Lijiang, and Shangri-La.
