Kunming : Michelin's recommendations
Kunming has over four million inhabitants who live from mining, tobacco, working in the fields and growing flowers. This rapidly developing city is becoming more and more modern, resulting in a city which is much like any other large metropolis. And yet Kunming has managed to retain a pleasant atmosphere: the shores of the Emerald Lake are busy with people practising Tai Chi in the morning; its bird market district makes for an interesting stroll; the city is home to some fascinating museums providing information on the Yunnan; and it also boasts numerous culinary specialities. Well worth a visit.
