Black Dragon Pool, Green Lake Park and the Western Hills will most likely be crammed with people. I'd recommend Xuning Temple:


Lovely and spacious, so even if crowded, you can still get good pics. Also, if the weather is good, you can take fantastic shots of much of Kunming.

@AlexKMG you are absolutely right. Don't know why I thought that was right. It's been changed in the article. Thanks for catching it.



To be fair, this is just my type of bar: live music, nicely priced drinks in a divey setting. Normally I would give 4 stars, but Sunday afternoons on the back patio are simply too good not to give a top rating.


Fantastic little clothing boutique with a wonderful owner.


Had the buffet here recently. A bit expensive but discounts are available for groups. Seafood, including crab, lobster and sushi were all fantastic. European and Chinese dishes were great as well. Beer was included with dinner. Overall, excellent service and food.


Excellent dumplings for omnivores, vegetarians and carnivores. This is a hole in the wall joint with no frills, but the owners are friendly and the dumplings are just right. Five stars if they get higher quality vinegar.


A great little green spot. I would give it five stars if the old orchid garden weren't locked every time I go there. Kunming needs more parks!
