Begin the first full day of this Yunnan Discovery Tour with a stroll through Green Lake Park (Cuihu Park). This visit helps you gain some unique insight into the everyday occurrences in a traditional Chinese park. Early birds start their day with tai chi, qigong, or a similar type of physical exercise considered vital to health and well-being. Others warm up the day in a friendly game of Chinese chess, Go (an ancient Chinese board game), or Mah-jong.

After visiting the park, continue to the Yuantong Temple. As one of the oldest Buddhist monuments in Kunming, this temple was founded during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Located in a natural valley, the temple’s unique location contributes to its peaceful atmosphere, which is still regularly visited by pelerine monks. The next stop is the pine and cypress-surrounded Golden Temple (which takes its name from the gold leaf which covers the main pavilion). Despite Buddhist influence, this temple is dedicated to Taoism, providing a glimpse into another fundamental pillar of traditional Chinese belief.

From here, move on to the Yunnan Provincial Museum (or Haigeng Ethnic Minorities Museum), an essential stop for anyone wishing to truly understand the characteristically multi-ethnic nature of this region. The museum has a beautiful collection of finery and traditional dress along with a relatively clear explanation of popular art forms.
