Known as the ‘Spring City’ thanks to is lovely, mild climate, Kunming is the laidback capital of Yunnan province. Sat beside Lake Dian on a fertile plateau Kunming has a reputation as China’s most pleasant city and is a charming, relaxed place to while away a few days, especially if good food and a bit of nightlife is what you’re after. The city is made all the more cosmopolitan thanks to its trade links with South East Asia and its large student population. Rather than lots of exploration, Kunming is a city to either stroll or sit back and enjoy the relaxed ambience.
