In south Kunming across from new Provincial Museum. Very touristy with lots of places to shop local souvenirs and sample local and other dishes. Try the Burmese restaurant in the back for authentic, tasty Burmese fare. Some local museums, but did not visit them.

This is not a mega church from the US. This old temple off of Guang Fu Road, is easy to access by several bus lines. Burn some incense, eat some strange food you can't get at McDonald's or just people watch.

This place is not far from Kunming City n it's easy to get there.. I like the ancient taste buildings around. One must try the local specialities at the food street or stop by a tea house to have a pot of "pu er".
