Kunming brief introduction

Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, is an important communication hub and trade center between Southwest China and the Southeast and South Asia, as well as a famous historical, cultural and tourist city with its special charm and convenient transportation. It has a total population of 6.29 million (Dec, 2009) with 24 ethnic minority groups living here for generations, including Yi, Hui, Miao, Bai, etc. Thus, varied ethnic customs are woven into this city's culture and history of more than 2,200 years.

What must be mentioned is the special climate when talking about Kunming. This city is located at an elevation of about 1890m on the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, having a milder climate than other Chinese cities. Owing to its comfortably warm weather, with flowers and plants being exuberant all year round, Kunming is given the title – the "Spring City". It is suitable to visit this city at any time of a year.
