Yunnan

Understand

Its name literally means south of the clouds. The province is one of the most diverse in China. The North of the province is heavily influenced by Tibet, with whom it shares a border. The South is influenced by its proximity to Laos and Myanmar. The province is famed for its multitude of ethnic groups, whose diverese customs can still be seen today.

Yunnan

Talk

The official language of Yunnan is Mandarin Chinese (or Putonghua as it is known). The region is home to a plethora of dialects from Chinese, Tibetan and Thai language families. Yunnan is home to many minority groups who each have their own different language. Furthermore, local towns will often have their own dialect of Mandarin, which may make understanding the local language difficult. Interestingly the area around Lijiang is home to the world's only pictographic language still in use, the language of the Naxi.

Yunnan

Get in

Yunnan

Train

Until 2005, Kunming was accessible by rail from Hanoi (Vietnam) via a narrow-gauge railroad built by the French. This rail route is now closed, though, so the best way to get down to the border is by bus, or by air from Kunming directly to Hanoi.

There is a railway from Nanning in Guangxi with some sensational scenery.

Yunnan

Air

Kunming has non-stop service from Beijing, Xiamen and other Chinese cities.
