    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.

      A good trip to Yunnan. With a well-planned tour, our whole itinerary was reasonable.

      On the one hand, we had enjoyed wonderful views; on the other hand, we had had a good rest during those days. Also, we appreciated the local ethnic characteristics and cultural landscape. It was worth visiting!

      Our tour guide on the Yunnan tour was dedicated and reliable!

      During the Yunnan tour, we visited Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. When we climbed up the hill top with an altitude of more than 15,092 feet, spectacular views were in our eyes. Very magnificent!

      What's more, we were arranged for the most comfortable hotel. What a pleasant trip!

      Erhai Lake was terrific! It made me feel quiet. During the whole Yunnan tour, our tour guide offered us with the best service. We were also very satisfied with the accommodation and it was tidy and quiet.

      What was important was that there was no shopping as we saw in the websites of TravelChinaGuide. Also, we had sufficient time to walk around. I loved this Yunnan tour!

      Our tour guide was amiable, easy-going, and dedicated. My favorite scenic spots were Erhai Lake and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. All my pressure and annoying matters were gone in front of the great views. If time permitted, I wanted to go there again. What a satisfactory trip! The Yunnan tour was highly recommended!

      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 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
