From Beijing to Kunming, it takes « only » 3h40 by plane. In China, everything is bigger, larger, wider etc. !
Kunming, with nearly 6 millions inhabitants, is the capital city of Yunnan, a region located at the south-ouest of China which has common borders with Vietnam, Laos, Burma and Tibet. Average altitude : more than 2000 meters for 393,734 km2 and a population of 46 millions.
The highest Yunnan peak is Kawagebo, which rises to 6,740 meters.
Populated with 25 « minorities », it is a colorful region offering a lot of spectacular touristical sites.
Having already toured Vietnam, Laos and Burma, Yunnan seemed to us a logical introduction to Chinese « province ».
Joy, assistant at « Wonders of Yunnan », a tour-operator based in Kunming, prepared us a 15 days tour of Yunnan. It began in Kunming and its surroundings with the help of Tina as private guide and Xu Dong as skilled driver. A good choice.
Thank you to all of them and let us enjoy the pictures.
