Show Answer
I will be in Kunming 14 - 17 April 2013. All of the tour to Stone Forest, lunch is provided, I am a Moslem and I cannot take the food. Is there any tour to stone forest (seat in the couch) without food. and what is the prize.
Nearly all the full-day group tour includes the lunch in the price. If you don't want that food, you can take your only snacks or fast food at the lunch time. Ruby Zhao replied on 2012-12-13
