Half Day Kunming Tour
Kun Ming, Yunnan, China
The half-day orientation tour takes you into the Green Lake and Yuantong Temple.
Visit the Green Lake an urban park established in the 20th century on the west side of the Wuhua Mountain and is sometimes described as a "Jade in Kunming". The park consists of a group of 4 small sub-lakes linked by bridges in the traditional style. The lake was originally a water reservoir for the city.
Then continue to Yuantong Temple an ancient Buddhist temple located in a protected natural depression and in recent years it has been expanded with funding from Thailand. In the 1950s, it hosted a grand ceremony to greet and send on the sacred teeth of the Buddha and so became important in Southeast Asia.
