In the morning, you will meet your tour guide at the gate of the Yunnan military academy (No. 22, Cuihui Xi Road), which was a famous military school in the last century. Learn about recent Chinese military history and Kunming’s importance as a military center. From there we will walk to the Green Lake, the bustling green center of Kunming city. Stroll through this beautiful park to see the daily life of modern Chinese people, where local middle-aged ladies come to ‘square dance’ and grandpa’s jam together with their traditional Chinese instruments. In summer the whole lake is covered with a carpet of fragrant lotus flowers, in the winter the lake is filled with thousands of seagulls that migrate here from Siberia. We will walk through the Green lake park to Yunnan university right next to the park and see some less known ancient cultural sites of Kunming city. Behind the university there is a charming narrow street named Wenhua Xiang (Culture Alley) with many small coffee shops, special bookstores, bars and all kinds of food from all over the world.
