Kunming Private Tour: Stone Forest and Flower and Bird Market

This tour will take you to visit the UNESCO Heritage Site of the Stone Forest and the local Flower and Bird Market.

Kunming, the capital city Yunnan province it is also know as the Spring city due to its mild weather. Kunming has a very rich history and moderate temperature all year around. This tour will take you to visit the UNESCO Heritage Site of the Stone Forest and the local Flower and Bird Market.

Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Kunming city centre to start this tour.

First you will drive to the Kunming’s Stone Forest, also called Shilin, about 120 kilometers (or 75 miles) from Kunming. The ride will take approximately three hours. The forest covers an area of 400 square kilometers (or 96,000 acres), and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that encompasses southern China. These Karst formations seem like an endless ‘forest’ of towers made out of stone, spires, and oddly shaped monoliths.

You’ll have lunch on your own, but with your assistant’s guidance. Because Kunming is high in humidity and has mild temperatures, there are plenty of fruits and vegetables all year round for local cuisine. There are plenty of snack options on the high streets and back lanes.

On your way back to the city you will have a chance to visit the Flower and Bird Market, which, along with the old houses preserved nearby, is under the city’s protection plan as the Old Town Quarter. Beside flowers and birds, the market offers traditional Chinese art, wooden sculptures, intricate Chinese knots, and more.

After this activity, you will be transferred to your hotel in Kunming city centre
