Kunming is located in the middle of Yunnan - Guizhou Plateau (120°45’ east longitude, 25°02’ northern latitude). The elevation of the city is 1891 meters above sea level. Kunming is surrounded on three sides, leaving one side facing the Dianchi Lake to its south. The Panlongjiang River, a tributary of the Yangtze River, winds through the city. The magic combination of various geographical factors makes Kunming a " Spring City " and a " Flower Capital " without bitter cold in winter and scalding heat in summer. Richly endowed with the mild climate of eternal spring, Kunming enjoys a picturesque scenery. Here the high offcials and dignitaries, Buddhist monks and Taoist priests of the past dynasties built pavilions, mansions, temples and palaces after careful inspection and selection. So places of historical interest and scenic beauty characteristic of the culture in southwest China can be found everywhere in and outside the city and around the Dianchi Lake. The wonderful climate makes the scenery even more beautiful.
The beauty of the " Spring City " is beyond description. Its unique charm is attracting more and more tourists both at home and abroad.
