Again an absolute must see while staying in Kunming. Right outside the city, going north you find the Mingfeng Hill where this 17th century marvellous temple sits. Inside it's a wonderful mix of old constructions, Taoist temples and an absolute fabulous gigantic garden with any sort of threes (most Camellias) and flowers. Very very well maintained, clean.

Nice to sniff some Chinese culture in this park. Many grandpa's and grandma's come here to play Mahjong, Cards or do some exercise.

Kunming Golden Temple is a must visit if you are in Kunming. It is clean and quiet. The place is really beautiful. You can see the entire city from top of the hill..

Taking the bus no.10 at the last stop. Lots of people are having the good picnic, fishing, and camping. Also if you keep walking up the hill, you will be able to see the temple at there, don't miss to pay a visit there.

This is a relatively small but authentic Old Temple surrounded by peaceful park like grounds. Do not miss going up the bell Tower,you can strike the bell but it will cost you.

This is an interesting place but getting there and surviving the crowds takes a fair amount of stamina. Maybe I was there on a bad day, but the road to the summit was gridlocked for an hour with tourist buses. Finally I walked to the top to discover that there was no parking available for the extra buses so they... More

Half an hour away from the city, you can get here by many of the city buses or by taxi. Lots of steps up the hill, with places to rest. There is a funicular for those who prefer riding up the hill. Camellias were in bloom - gardens were wonderful and ponds were peaceful. Temple and bell tower bot to... More

The entire complex is quite beautiful, but if you are here and on your own you might miss the 'golden' temple first time you see it, we certainly did. The temple, once you realize that it is made out of tons and tons of copper/bronze is very beautiful and impressive, especially the interior roof and the Buddha statue inside, but... More
