Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, is normally the gateway city for a Yunnan tour. It is a desirable metropolis with a comfortable climate, natural scenery, four-season flowers and a slow pace of life. Spending some time in Kunming is not only a chance to see the popular attractions such as the Stone Forest and West Hill, but also a chance to get a general impression of life in Yunnan. See the incredible vegetables in a wet market, visit a huge flower market, and taste authentic Yunnan food in a time-honored local restaurant.
