When you are visiting China, you should avoid travelling during the major public holidays. Many Chinese people use the holidays around Spring Festival, First of May and especially the Golden Week to travel through the country. Stay calm. And maybe even at home.

About ten kilometers northwest of famous Lijiang Old Town, several ancient villages, including Baisha Village can be found. There, the invaluable Lijiang Mural is stored, preserved and displayed in 15 different temples. An extraordinary part of Yunnan's history!

Kunming is lovingly referred to as Spring City due to its mild climate and extremely colorful trees and flowers. But how about other cities and regions in the area? Anning for instance, only a stone's throw away from the capital is also worth a visit!

While many of our guests in Yunnan choose to use the train or book a car with driver to get around on their tour, only few take the opportunity for self-driving. It actually is possible but you would need to apply for a Chinese driver's license first. If you have some time it's worth it!

Kunming is called Spring City for a good reason. While we can enjoy friendly spring weather in Kunming nearly all year round, the 'real' spring has something special to offer: Kunming in bloom - do as the bees do and get attracted by colorful blossoms.

Following up our small series of Kunming airport shuttle articles, we today complete it with the bus routes of Airport Bus 919. It's the cheapest way to get from the airport into town or the other way around. Look for the big white coaches outside the arrival hall!
