    What is the best time to visit Yunnan?

    Yunnan has a generally mild climate all year round. Spring (March-May), summer (June-August) and autumn (September-November) are the best seasons because of the charming scenery with green hills and clear water. Due to the pleasant weather at that time, it is alright for you to wear T-shirts when traveling. Visitors are advised to carry light jacket or coat in case of the sharp temperature differences between day and night.

    How to plan a private tour to Yunnan?

    It is suggested to spend at least 4 days for a brief Yunnan tour itinerary. Any two cities of Kunming, Dali, Lijiang or Shangri-La can be covered. If you prefer to include all four popular cities, then an 8-day tour is needed. For photography enthusiasts, Yuanyang Rice Terraces in Jianshui could be a good choice.

      We had great fun in the Yunnan tour. We were so lucky to meet an excellent tour guide. On the whole way, he took good care of us. We were deeply impressed by his professional knowledge. Referring to meals, we had special local cuisines. They were so tasteful and delicious! I loved the local food and the Yunnan tour!

      Dali was a quiet and simple town. In Dali, we had viewed a lot of traditional Bai ethnic minority folk houses. That’s very interesting! In Erhai Lake, we were shocked by its beauty! While on the top of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, we saw the snow slowly melting under the sun through the glass skywalk. All of us were so excited!

      We viewed beautiful sights and ate delicious food in the Yunnan tour! What impressed me most was Erhai Lake where it created wonderful photo opportunities with its clean water, seagulls in huge flocks hovering above. During our Yunnan tour, our tour guide was earnest and dedicated who left me a deep impression of Yunnan. Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Shangri-La all deserved a visit! Taking a tour was a precious experience for me and the most important thing for travel is to take a good mood! Hope everybody can enjoy a good trip! ... More

      I was very satisfied with this trip to Yunnan. I took lots of pictures of beautiful Dali and Erhai Lake. They were so amazing! What’s more, I slept well in those days because of a comfortable hotel. Of course, I tasted many delicious local foods. They were so yummy! Great fun in the Yunnan tour!

      I enjoyed my 8-day Yunnan trip very much! Special praise was given to our travel consultant Emily. She was concerned about us, whether there was anything unsatisfactory that needed to be improved. That was really thoughtful!

      Yunnan was a mysterious resort where I had been longing for exploring the beauty of the Cangshan Mountains and Erhai Lake. The attractions really didn’t let me down!

      In addition, thanks a lot for the guides’ considerate care all the way and also thank our drivers’ hard work! ... More

      The 5 days Yunnan itinerary was arranged in place and we spent a good time in the Green Lake Park, Black Dragon Pool and Tiger Leaping Gorge. We took lots of pictures of the spectacular views of Tiger Leaping Gorge. Many thanks to our guide’s detailed explanations and attentive care!

      The itinerary of 8 days Yunnan tour from Kunming to Shangri-La was well arranged and it was absolutely a cost-effective trip! The Lijiang Old Town was a wonderful street where we explored busy bars, distinctive restaurants and unique souvenir shops. The Buddhist Temple we visited in Shangri-La looked so resplendent collecting profound Tibetan religious culture. It was a great site to worship and ease our minds. All the hotels were comfortable and the Paradise Hotel of Shangri-La Travel China Guide booked for us were most satisfying, providing relaxing pools, a night club, fully-equipped rooms and so on. In short, our vacation in Yunnan was quite enjoyable! ... More

      We had a 5 days Yunnan tour package to Kunming, Lijiang and Tiger Leaping Gorge in January. It was a little cold in the morning and evening. Noon was the best time for sightseeing! Our hotels were good quality and we had relatively eased rests.

      This was our third visit to China. This time, we booked the "6 Days China Tour to Kunming- Jianshui - Yuanyang - Kunming". It was one of the most, if not the most, memorable and exciting excursion we ever undertook. Our tour guide "Richard" and the driver "Mr. Li" certainly contributed to the overall success. We felt safe at all times with Mr. Li behind the wheel. Richard was a superb guide. His knowledge about Chinese history, figures and locations, was most impressive. There simply wasn't a question he failed to answer and elaborate on. We are already looking where could possible go next year, again booking through TravelChinaGuide. ... More
