On the first day afternoon, you can go to Green Lake Park, the most beautiful park in Kunming, which is called "the beautiful jade in the city".The park is open for free, with tens of thousands of red-billed gulls from the north wintering on the lake in winter. The streets around the park are lined with featured shops. The second day to climb the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, it is generally takes about one day to visit. During the peak travel season, it will take a lot of time to wait in line for the cable car. Usually, tourists will go down the mountain at about 5:00 PM. You can choose to stay in the inns around Shuhe Ancient Town in the evening after you go down the mountain and stroll around there in the evening.On the morning of the third day, you can go to Heilongtan lake park, 6 kilometers away from Shuhe Ancient Town, or walk around Lijiang Old Town, but pay attention to the time of going to Dali in the afternoon. You can go to Erhai lake on the morning of the fourth day.This is just my personal advice, because Yunnan province has many beautiful tourist attractions, you can also ask the hotel or inn where you stay to give you reasonable travel advice.

Can I get to Upland International Youth Hostel from Kunming Airport by metro line 6?
Answers (1)
Answered by Mile from SINGAPORE | Nov. 20, 2017 20:53

No, metro line 6 can’t take you directly there. You need to change to line 3 at East Coach Station, and get off at Wuyi Rd. After that, take a taxi to your hotel, which takes about 5 minutes and CNY10 or so.
