Kunming City Scenes

 The week before I left China, I went around the city in attempts to take some good pictures of the city for memory's sake.  I ended up with some beautiful pictures from the Green Lake area in the center of the city.  Enjoy!

Just as I was about to leave China, celebrations for the lunar new year were just beginning.  I love the festivity in the Green Lake park area! 

I just love how some of these dusk scenes turned out.  They really show the liveliness and color of the city.

The Bird and Flower Market - basically a giant flea market, but with a lot more variety!  They sell collectibles, and many people sell plants, animals, instruments...you name it.  If you ever go here, don't forget to bargain hard!

The sidewalks are marked in texture so that the blind can find their way around.

This trash area was on my way to the small outdoor produce market where I often shopped.

If you ever have the chance to visit Kunming, I would highly recommend!  It really is a beautiful city, as well as Yunnan is a very pretty province.


  1. Oh I love how the red of the lanterns just pop in those photographs! Thank you for linking up with me for #TravelTuesday!

    1. Thanks Bonnie, I was so glad I got to see the festivities starting up for Chinese new year. The lanterns were so pretty hanging up everywhere. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I never knew that was the purpose of textured sidewalks! I've walked on sidewalks just like that before, but I didn't know why! That's a smart idea!

    1. Haha, I remember being confused about it for a long time. I can't remember if someone told me what it was for, or if I saw a blind person using it, but I remember feeling like everything makes sense now! haha

  3. How gorgeous!!! This really makes me miss Taiwan!
