Where to Go in Kunming in October

On sunny days, it is suitable for outdoor activities. Dongchuan Red Land is a good option. It is just like a big palette. In autumn, fiery red soil, emerald green barley and wheat, snow white oil flowers and golden yellow buckwheat form a marvelous picture, attracting a number of photographers. Luoxiagou, the most famous attraction of the scenic area, is a gully where rosy clouds change unpredictably. If you want to visit the downtown area, Kunming Botanical Garden is a nice place where you can appreciate camellia flowers or walk through Sideway of Sweetgums to relax your mind. In October, black-headed gulls will fly to Kunming and spend winter there, so you can have a look at the beautiful birds in Green Lake Park or lakeside of the Dianchi Lake.
 

Other Tips

Even though the rainy season is coming to an end, it still rains sometimes, so you should bring rain gear. In October, ultraviolet rays are intense and the climate is relatively dry in Kunming, so you need to apply sunscreen or wear a sunhat and sun-protective clothing, and drink more water during outdoor activities. For fear of the inconvenience of heavy tourist traffic during National Day holiday, you'd better have your itinerary arranged as early as possible.
