The Yunnan University campuses are well-maintained and just walking through them is a great visual and sensual pleasure. The campuses are alive with student activities and great small shops in the surrounding areas that cater to the students and the teachers.

Large campus with huge grounds, worth wandering around to see the gardens and meet students. Best in early morning or late afternoon, when nice light.
