The capital city is Kunming. Yunnan province borders Tibet Autonomous Region, Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar. Yunnan is home to 25 ethnic groups and was a significant part of the Southern Silk Road. The land is just as diverse as the people, from rice terraces in Yuanyang to the vast grasslands and snow-capped mountains in Shangri-La to the Shilin Stone Forest near Kunming to the many Tibetan temples all over Yunnan.Jenica Suson
The Summer Palace
The park itself is enormous, but choosing a few places of interest are enough for a good long walk. We went through Suzhou Street – market on the bank of the river, passed through Long Corridor – it’s a picturesque corridor painted with scenes from Mythology and tales, crossed 17-Arch Bridge, climbed on Longevity Hill to the Tower of Buddhist Incense and enjoyed the view on the Kunming Lake. An Imperial Garden is a splendid choice for those who like to wander and enjoy the blend of nature and architecture on the way – this place gives a genuine aesthetic pleasure.Elina Rukavitsyna
