Welcome to the City of Eternal Spring
Discover a colourful gamut of cultures in the largest city of Yunnan in southwest China, the province’s capital Kunming. Known as the the City of Eternal Spring and, thanks to its location 1,900m above sea level, Kunming enjoys a temperate climate (nearly) all year round.
The glorious weather here means this is a city awash with colour – this area is in bloom with dazzling floral displays 365 days a year. This makes it a delight to visit during any season to see the surrounding hills dotted with vibrant colours and visit the markets where freshly cut bouquets spill from the stalls.
The city is the focal point of Yunnan minority cultures and ethnic groups. Among the population you’ll find Yi, Bai, Miao, Dai and Hani living together. Each group has its own featured festivals, such as the Torch Festival or the Golden Temple Fair. In Kunming there is always something going on and your expert guides can explain the significance of the celebrations to you. You may even wish to join the party...
