Kunming isn't the only place in Yunnan enjoying the recent arrival of spring flowers. The county of Luoping in eastern Yunnan has entered its most beautiful time of year, when its fields of canola (also known as rapeseed) flowers are in full bloom, surrounding the area's mountains with a sea of golden flowers to spectacular effect.
Located near where Yunnan meets Guizhou and Guangxi, Luoping is about 240 kilometers east of Kunming. Not unlike the terraced fields of Yuanyang in southern Yunnan, Luoping's canola fields attract hordes of photographers in search of the perfect photograph.
Luoping's golden beauty will be around until late June. During this high travel season for the county there are regular buses leaving from Kunming's bus stations on an almost hourly basis. Accomodations in Luoping range from cheap 10-yuan boarding houses to more expensive star-rated hotels.© Copyright 2005-2020 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
