The Bird and Flower Market in the central Kunming is not just what is
sounds to be. It's a nice outdoor market where you can buy all kinds of
stuff, like shoes, cloth, brachlets, and fast food. A lot of
Tibetan stuff. I bought several old military Mao medals from 1949 and
1951. Don't know if its realy legal, but it's the real stuff.
As Yunnan is knowned for their minority groups, they have built a
large park which shows the life and buildings of different cultures.
It's called the Yunnan Nationalities Village and there you find example
of Bai, Wu, Jinuo, Naxi and other culture groups.
I visited the Provincial Museum one day. A realy boring place, and
you don't need to go there. Actually, Kunming is quite boring it self. A
big city like other big cities, helding some temples and mosks. By now I
was realy tired with temples.
Of course, it's allways up to you what you make of it, but for me
this was mainly a transit point. My plan was to go south, visiting the
minorities close to Laos and Burma. But, of course, first I was going to
the Stone Forest not so far from Kunming.
