Loved the monastary that is way up on a hill with all the statues of different monks depicted supposedly on specific people who, actually, weren't happy with the honest depictions and the sculptor soon "dissappeared." You take a bus to a main bus exchange and then take a shared minivan up the mountain, same thing on the way back. I found it very peaceful up there. I can't remember the exact details but it should be in your guidebook and/or they should have information at your accomodation.

Great city, nice spring-time weather ALL YEAR ROUND unlike other parts of China, which can get crazy hot during summer or crazy cold during winter. Definitely one of my favorite cities in China.

Oh my God, you have never seen anything as amazing as the Kunming Stone Forest. Just incredible. Bear in mind that it is a high altitude place, so keep drinking your water and lay off the caffeine and alcohol.

Actually, the Stone Forest is a marginal attraction. It is one of China's most popular domestic tour spots and is often very crowded with flag totting tour groups. The stone shapes and outcroppings are mildly impressive but the entire complex is quite sterile. Also, be prepared for a high-priced "tea" sales pitch obligatory at the end of most tours. The local ethnic tribes dressed in traditional costume (didn't know they had nylon and polyester in ancient times) and positioned outside the Stone Forest gates heighten the air of artificiality.

My birth place, as well as one of my favourite cities in China. "The City of Spring". Natures and nice yummy fruit and veggies.

If you want a crazy (and loud) Tibetan cultural show but some really delicious food, check out Makye Ame. You won't soont forget it... but don't go there if you want to have much conversation!

For a more upscale (and yummy) dinner with a stunning view overlooking the city, head to the Moonlight Corner Thai restaurant (entrance next to the back gate of the Horticultural Expo Garden). It's a bit hard to get to but worth it!
