Sense Spring Vitality in Southwest China
5-Day Kunming, Luoping, and Wanfenglin Tour
Luoping — a place where you're spoiled for spring scenery — attracts people's eyes every February and March. The vast vistas of yellow flowers combine with the toothy or terraced landscape to form views of barely-imaginable beauty. We have the locals to thank for these heart-stirring scenes.
As you travel east from Kunming, you will be impressed by the limestone landforms (karst formations) that China abounds in. Enjoy the hills, terraces, and fields in Luoping. Marvel at the endless peak forest and peak clusters in Wanfenglin. But more than this, be touched by the peaceful rural life and hard-working local people that make the difficult-to-farm countryside burst into life with canola brilliance.
This 5-day Kunming, Luoping, and Wanfenglin tour is the best choice for your China spring outing. It is all about the spring, amazing landscapes, and rural life. (km-7)

Lijiang Trip July 2021
Kudos to Alisa Liu from the agency who I must say was on hand almost 24/7 for requests and queries. Even though our trip was marred with the onset of the Typhoon In Fa with various flight and train cancellations but Alisa was quick to arrange for alternative solutions under the circumstances and made the most effort to make our journey as comfortable as possible whilst we made our way back to Shanghai. As for the itinerary, Alisa understands her clientele’s different needs very well and for the most part my expectations were met. I love private tours with a very relaxed itinerary and comfortable accommodation and some of us prefer more exclusive accommodation vs a packed itinerary trying to go to a hundred location type of tour. more
