- Kunming is called a Spring city in China as its climate is mild year round, and the attractions of Kunming are very distinctive, the beautiful terraces in minority ethnic villages, old Chinese style architecture, and the stone forest that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Kunming is also the provincial capital of Yunnan, which means “south of the clouds” in Mandarin. It is China’s most geologically diverse province that offers travelers contrasting variations such as tropical lowlands in the south bordering Laos and Burma as well as the majestic Meili Snow Mountain reigning near Tibet border in northwest. There are more ethnic minorities call Yunnan province home than any other provinces in China (25 out of 56 ethnic minorities). Three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the deepest river canyon in the country (Tiger Leaping Gorge) are also located in Yunnan.
