Lake Dianchi

City of Kunming Yunnan Province

10. Lake Dianchi, Kunming

Kunming's prime scenic and recreational area is at Lake Dian, China's sixth largest. Tour boats cruise the crystal waters. On one shore lies Grand View Park (Daguan Gongyuan), which provides the flowers that Kunming is famous, along with arched bridges and pavilions. On the opposite shore lie the rich green slopes of the Western Hills (Xishan). A newer attraction is the Yunnan Nationalities Village, an ethnic theme park consisting of 24 minority mini-villages, probably the best such park in China. We took this picture from the Western Hills looking north.
