Kunming is the political, cultural, economic capital of Yunnan Province and fittingly the prefecture’s attractions reflect the province’s scenic and ethnic renown. It enjoys a year-round mild climate and is known as the “Spring City”. The most famous attraction is the Stone Forest, a National-grade scenic Area. It is an area of bare limestone outcrops, fantastically eroded — the most grotesque karst landscape in the world.
Some of the other most popular attractions that will be accessible visa-free are: West Hill, Dianchi Lake, Cuihu Park, Dongchuan Red Land, Yuannan Minority Village, Jiuxiang’s caves, and the Golden Temple.
