A must try cuisine if you come to Kunming is ‘Across the Bridge Noodles’, one of Kunming specialty. Huge bowls of hot steaming broth arrived together with an array of thinly sliced raw meats and other plates of chopped fresh vegetables, nuts and noodles. Throw meat into the bowl of soup first, then the raw eggs, veggies and eventually the pre-cooked noodles-stir and enjoy it!

 

I spent most of my time walking around Green Lake area admiring trees lined on side of streets, parks, lakes and relaxing cafes with perfect weather. Flowers bloom almost the whole year except winter, fruits of season putting up in fruit stalls each 3 months time. Seagulls from Siberia migration to Kunming lakes every winter year and has become a major tourist attraction for the city. Hundreds or maybe thousands of birds swimming in the lake or flocking above it.

 

Visiting the Green Lake Park (Cuihu) is interesting; come here in the morning around 8:30am or 5pm daily to watch local people singing, dancing and practicing kungfu; the most interesting is you’ll see some elderly people playing with traditional music instruments with the actor/actress very serious going about their performance. Green Lake Park is a wonderful landscaped with about 3 lakes and 4 pagodas as you wander over bridges and through pathways where you see people enjoying themselves, it is really a lovely place to be just to admire the beauty of the gardens alone or with your loved ones.
