Arrive in Kunming by air or train this morning. Meet your guide and transfer to centrally located 5-star hotel. Capital of Yunnan Province, Kunming is widely known as the “city of eternal spring” due to its temperate climate year-round. Kumning is also home to several universities, museums, galleries and other important economic, cultural, and educational institutions. The city was important during World War II as a Chinese military center, American air base, and transport terminus for the Burma Road. Located in the middle of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, Kunming is located at an altitude of 1,900 metres above sea level and at a latitude just north of the Tropic of Cancer. It covers an area of 21,501 km² and its urban area covers 6,200 km². Kunming has an estimated population of 5,740,000 including 3,055,000 in the urban area and is located at the northern edge of the large Lake Dian, surrounded by temples and lake-and-limestone hill landscapes.

Our sightseeing in Kunming includes the historic Western Hill Scenic Area, Bamboo Temple, and a flower market.

Day 2: Kunming
Enjoy an excursion to Stone Forest or Shilin in Chinese. Located 126km southeast of Kunming, the Stone Forest is a massive collection of gray limestone pillars created by water erosion. The tall rocks seem to emanate from the ground in the manner of stalagmites, with many looking like trees made of stone.
