Going to be in Kunming for a few days

by msg621

Hello Forum, I am going to be in Kunming for a few days in October and was looking for a few ideas on how best to enjoy the city while I am there. I would prefer not to be caught in tourist traps and would like to find some interesting areas for photography as well. I will look at othe posts with regards to doing things in and around the area, but would love other suggestions as well. Thanks.

Thanks for the information. It gives me something a little extra to do other than purely following the tourist trails.

Travel Tips for Kunming

Tea tasting in Kunming

by hooiluangoh

Kunming has many teashops. And tea-tasting is an experience not to be missed.

There are up to 30 different types of tea-leaves on display typically, in large jars.

One can generally categorise the tea into 3 types: green, oo-long, and black. Green = not fermented; oo-long = half fermented; black = fully fermented.

There is also "red", but I found different shops give different interpretations.

You just point out which tea you are interested in, and the shop assistant will let you try it at their tea table, which is built from the root-truck of a huge tree.

And try as many teas as you like, and only buy those you really like.

The price of the tea ranges from RMB 10 per 100 g to RMB 300 per 100 g. And the famous Pu Er tea brick/pancake (which is tea compressed into that shape) costs between RMB 50 to RMB thousands. Bargaining is possible. The tea brewing process is elaborate. You have to watch it, but in the end a nice little cup of tea is served to you. You can take your time and ask all the questions about it.

The chinese believe the 3rd cup of tea is the best, so perhaps it's a good idea to drink at least 3 cups before you conclude if it is your cup of tea...

It's also nice the tasting itself is free of charge,but I always feel obliged to buy something at least (even a teacup) after spending hours in a teashop if I don't find the tea I like.

Huating Temple

by Dizzydean

Huating Temple (Huating Si) -- Built in the 11th century, it used to be a county temple of the Nanzhao Kingdom. Rebuilt in 14th century, it continued to grow and later became the largest Buddhist complex in Kunming. The main temple contains a trinity of gilded lacquer Buddhas seated on lotus thrones. It is characterized by blue hair, august gesture and sumptuous setting. Comparing with the serious Buddha, the 500 luohan on the sidewalls, similar to those in the Bamboo Temple, then appear frivolous and easygoing.

by hooiluangoh about Depends on the item

Depends on the item.

This is a list of items which are produced in Yunnan, so it is inexpensive to buy and makes a good souvenir. 1. Herb - Tian Ma. Cures migranes and headaches.

2. Herb - San Qi. Excellent for people with high blood pressure.

3. Flower tea - Yunnannese makes tea with all kinds of flowers.

4. Pu Er tea - This is only produced in Yunnan and nowhere else in the world.

5. Dolls dressed in ethnic costumes/Bai fabric (great table cloth)/minorities arts and crafts.

6. Processed ham (yunnan ham)

7. Various mushrooms (dried so you can take home). Be adventurous here. Apparently the most expensive is "song rong". Depends on the item.

Wind Dried Ham

by bpacker about Delicious Delicacy

In the shape of pipa (a plucked string instrument with a fretted fingerboard), Xuanwei ham has thin skin, thick meat, a bright color and a strong aroma. Thanks to its high quality, Xuanwei ham is also known as "Yunnan ham."

Relaxing at Green Lake Park

by Ines28

The green lake park (Cuihu Park) is a complex of 4 twisting lakes with some nice tranquil pavilions and benches just to sit and relax. After having walked around the city for several hours, this is a nice and quiet place to give your feet a rest!
