If you visit Kunming you absolutely must take a walk around the Green Lake. It’s a beautiful place with many paths that lead to small gardens or a different view of the water. A great way to unwind after a hard days work!

It is good to see locals are dancing on open space, playing chess, going for food. However, the lake is not properly maintain. The water lily pond looks messy, part of the lake has greenish stagnant looking algae floating on it. Another lake with geese...More
