I am thinking going to Yunnan for 9 days, July 28 - Aug 6. I will be flying in and out of Kunming.
Is this a good time weather and crowds wise? I would want to spend most of my time outside, and don't want to run into peak crowds.
I am traveling solo and would plan to use trains and buses. Is it necessary to book ahead?
Is it easy to find hotels/guesthouses without booking ahead?
Are there any other destinations I should consider, given that I have 9 days?
Thanks for you help
