The economic, political and cultural centre of Yunnan, a pleasant climate all year round, alluring highland sceneries, bewitching karst landforms, exotic cultures and historical attractions spanning more than 2,400 years – these are just some of the reasons that make Kunming, the capital city of Yunnan, a major destination in Southwestern China. As the tourism centre of Yunnan province, Kunming has also been a transport hub, from where tourists can go easily to places such as Dali, Lijiang and Shangrila.
Also known as the City of Eternal Spring, Kunming is especially popular amongst tourists just as the last winds of winter fade away and the city is blanketed with spring-time blooms, heralding the start of the annual Spring Festival. Whilst flavourful local dishes and proliferation of night markets, cafes, pubs and bars are trademarks of Kunming, three centrally-located shopping streets and plazas, namely Qingnian Road, Dongfeng Road and Zhengyi Road – make duty free shopping a breeze for tourists.
