What to expect
Meet your guide at your central hotel in Kunming, and hop inside a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. Then, set off through the bustling streets with your small group of no more than 10 travelers. Hear tales of Kunming’s colorful past, architecture, and culture from your guide, and make your first stop at the Grand View Tower, a beautiful pagoda-style building perched on the banks of Dianchi Lake in Daguan Park. Admire the 3-story pavilion with its upturned roofs, and learn how it was built by the Emperor Kangxi during the Qing dynasty in the 17th century, before being rebuilt in the 1800s. Explore inside to see the tower’s intricately painted calligraphy, and admire the panoramic views over the lake to the forest-covered Western Hills. Having explored here, continue to Yuantong Temple, Kunming’s biggest Buddhist temple, and the most important in Yunnan Province. Built during the Tang dynasty, this 1,200-year-old architectural gem overlooks a small lake, and is known for its elaborate snake carvings. Head inside with your guide to admire the richly decorative architecture, and after your tour, break for a delicious Chinese lunch at a well-known local restaurant. After around an hour over lunch, make your way to the Flowers and Birds Market in downtown Kunming. Delve into the lanes of this popular outdoor market, where hundreds of vendors hawk vast arrays of colorful blooms and exotic birds, as well as all manner of antiques, jewelry, handicrafts, and knick-knacks. Soak in the atmosphere as you watch the locals go about their daily business, and peruse and purchase any goodies as souvenirs (own expense). After five hours, your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off.

Amazing
Nov 2019
We had the most memorable family tour with Trippest tour. We felt everything was great, our guide Ms. Daisy and driver truly cared about us which was amazing. They did their best to make the trip remarkable. This journey was something we will cherish for many years to come. We will cherish the comfort and beauty of grand view tower, flower market & history of Yuantong temple we learned from our competent guide and the halal delicious food. It was one of the best trips in our life.

Wonderful company!

I am just back from China and must say that I had a great time. And Trippest played a big part in my successful trip. I was traveling by myself and as I have never been to China, I decided to book all transfers and a two-day small group tour of Beijing with the same company. Everything worked out perfectly. The drivers were always on time at the airport, hotels and the train station (I went by the bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai) and the cars were very comfortable and well presented. The two-day tour of Beijing with Jerry was just wonderful. He is such a great and enthusiastic guide. His English is really good and his knowledge of Chinese history is profound. He was very polite and engaging and took us to very good restaurants for lunch which is always a bonus. I really had a great time and as a female travelling solo, I always felt safe and well taken care of. Excellent company!
