Kunming (??) is the capital of Yunnan Province, China.
You can book Air tickets form Air China Office, Wallton Building, 448 Baoshan Jie,(0871)3159171.
The train station has recently been refurbished and has a ticket office on its lower level. The station serves destinations throughout China including Nanning, Guilin, Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai. The train service to destinations inside of Yunnan is poor except for an overnight sleeper train to Xiaguan (Dali New Town).
Kunming has several bus stations. In general, the most useful is on Beijing Lu (next to the train station). It serves destinations in Yunnan including Jinghong, Dali, Lijiang, Zhongdian and Ruili. It also has international departures to Laos and Vietnam, though these services are not always running.
As elsewhere in bigger cities close to mountainous regions, you can buy fairly good quality Outdoor and Camping gear in Kunming. Prices are about a third compared to Europe or America, and some of the equipment is actually the stuff you'll buy there, since it is produced in China. Shops can be found in a courtyard at 20 Dongfeng Donglu and on Baoshan Jie close to the central square.
The flower and bird market in Kunming is a good place to look for local minority souvenirs, jade and Chinese games.
In the Kunming flower and bird market, there is a great pizzeria set in a qing dynasty courtyard house. The prices are more expensive than eating local dishes, but the atmosphere and quality of the food are outstanding. To find it, head to the flower and bird market and as you walk round, keep your eyes peeled for their sign above the stalls.
