Kunmíng is the capital and largest city of Yunnan Province in Southwest China. Known as the 'the City of Eternal Spring' due its temperate climate and beautiful flowers that bloom all year long. Kunming is located at an altitude of 1,900 m above sea level and at a latitude just north of the Tropic of Cancer. Kunming is a walled town and a very colourful and interesting place to stay. Kunming is the focal point of Yunnan minority culture. Some 26 ethnic minorities such as Yi, Bai, Miao, Dai, Hani and more inhabit the region. Each group has its own featured festivals such as the Torch festival of Yi people, the Golden Temple Fair. Kunming simply celebrates life.

Experience Kunming with Abercrombie & Kent to have an unforgettable and highly personalised holiday to China.
