What I did
Kunming, free and easy

Flag of China  , Yunnan,
Thursday, April 5, 2012

We (group of 8 people of friends and family members) took a private tour from the local Yunnan tour group.

We paid roughly SGD1800 per pax, which include
- Private tour package from Yunnan local tour agency (do not enter shops). Include local tour guide and driver.
- International and domestic air tickets
- Hotel stay including breakfast
- Entrance fee to sightseeing areas

What we paid on our own
- Lunch and dinner
- Sightseeing additional cost such as bus ride if we do not want to walk
- Rental of cold weather wear
- Shopping :)

Exchange Rate is about 1SGD to 5RMB

We took the morning (about 0800hr) flight out of Singapore and reach Yunnan (云南) in the afternoon. First thing we did was to have the famous 云南过桥米线, follow by checking to our hotel. The hotel is decent with decent breakfast choice. It is sited at the City center and just beside it is a community (garden) area and a river, where the people came to exercise in the morning and dance at night.

The rest of the afternoon was free and easy. We bought a China mobile SIM card so that we can be in contact with the main tour agency as well as the tour guide.

From the hotel, we took a bus to 金马碧鸡坊. Follow by a taxi to 翠湖公园, and dinner in the surrounding area. There are a lot of eating place just outside 翠湖公园.

Below is a URL in both English and Chinese that have some good information on Yunnan.
