How to put it, the expectations may be too high, I went around a few streets in the city center, and felt average. The streets are too narrow, the buildings are relatively old, and traffic jams are severe. Maybe it was the wrong time, I didn't see the flowers in my imagination. It feels less beautiful than Chengdu. This is purely my own feeling, there is no regional problem, don't spray.
Kunming's central location, surrounded by many shopping, entertainment and dining, is a good place to experience Southwestern style.
This is a very well known walking street in center of Kunming where you can see many nice houses built the ancient style, flowers, and statues, etc. perfect for your travel pictures. Shops and restaurants are plentiful. You can find international and local brands here so shopping is my main activity each time I’m in Kunming. If there is a big sale off, you can buy quite a lot of clothes. There is a Carrefour Supermarket here too and KFC, McDonald, Starbucks, Uniqlo. Very colorful either day or night. as Kunming is an Eternal Spring city, you will see beautiful flowers being arranged and shown there. Can arrive by subway and bus apart from taxi. It’s a touristy street but worth a visit around 5pm till dark.
