What you will see in Kunming during a Sightseeing tour

Embarking on a sightseeing tour in the splendid city of Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province in China, is like stepping into a living gallery of natural and cultural wonders. Affectionately known as the 'City of Eternal Spring' for its gentle climate and blooming flowers throughout the year, Kunming presents a tapestry of experiences waiting to enchant you.

Discovering the Stone Forest

One of the crown jewels of Kunming is the Stone Forest, a set of impressive limestone formations that resemble petrified trees, creating the illusion of a forest made of stone. With our Happytripz tours, you are afforded ample time to meander through these impressive geological structures, some towering above at awe-inspiring heights. Green Lake Park: A Bucolic Haven A stone's throw from the bustling city center, Green Lake Park is a sanctuary of tranquility. Strolling along the path that circumnavigates the water, you'll witness locals practicing Tai Chi, playing melodious tunes on traditional instruments, and enjoying vibrant dance routines. This is also a recreational spot to unwind and observe Kunming's daily life in its most vibrant form.

Historical Insights at Yuantong Temple

Yuantong Temple, arguably the most famous Buddhist temple in Kunming, provides a doorway to serenity and history. With our experienced guides at Happytripz, delve into the temple's rich tapestry of historical narratives, art, and architecture. Standing since the 8th century, it offers not just spiritual solace but also incredible photo opportunities with its scenic pond and stone bridges.

Visiting the Green Lake Park as part of the tour was a delightful experience. The place is an oasis of calm in the city, and watching the locals practice Tai Chi and play traditional music added to the ambiance. Our guide was friendly and ensured we didn't miss the charming tea houses around the lake!
