For some reason, Kunming never makes the top of the list of China's "Best places to live," which is weird because it seems like the city should win hands down. The sun shines pretty much all year round, when it does rain it's refreshing, and the city's location on a plateau makes for a bright sky and a constant brisk wind. But people tend to take job opportunities and infrastructure into account, and in that respect I guess Kunming fails. But for hippies and layabouts, Yunnan's provincial capital is awesome.

Green Lake Park

Cuihu Park(Green Lake Park) is centrally located and almost always busy with strollers, performers, singers and lovers. The park is small and easily traversed in an afternoon, after  which you can visit one of the many cafes along the lake’s edges and north of the lake toward Yunnan University. Every winter birds fly through here from Russia and every summer they fly back. Have bread crumbs on hand because the flocks be circling.

Golden Temple
A great escape in the city of great escapes is the Golden Temple in the northeast of town, a quiet memorial to Wu Sangui, the Ming Dynasty general who opened the Great Wall’s Shanhai Pass Gate, allowing Manchu armies to conquer Beijing. Regardless of what you think of the general’s traitorous actions, while in Kunming Wu Sangui loved to relax and enjoy the easy life. The Golden Temple is a series of Taoist courtyards, one leading to the other, spaced by pavilions and small wooden buildings.
