The park was very big and there were lots of people, so it seemed a little crowded. The park rotates its themes throughout the year, and now it is the chrysanthemum festivals. They were gorgeous and brought a lot of joy to the local people.

We detoured here for a break during a very long walk around Kunming, and it was a good choice! With the big lake, walkways and plenty of trees for shade, it was a nice place for a bit of relaxation. The lake dominates the park, so there isn't much green space to walk around on or sit on, but there... More

My husband knew there was "a park" here from a morning jog, but not what it was so we wandered out there on a Saturday morning. The old buildings were nice, but as is typical for Chinese signs, they tell you the dimensions and location of the historical building you're standing directly in front of, but very little that is...

I went to Daguanlou due to misunderstanding. The old city of Kunming is rapidly giving way to the urban development. A lot of old buildings from 50s-70s were demolished and I would like to visit the remaining ones. A local salesman suggested me to come here. I didn't make myself clear of the definition of 'old buildings' to him. The... More

I must specify that we were on a tour and was only given 30 minutes to explore Daguan. I remember a tower, paying 2 yuan to go up the tower to see the Lake Dian from a few stories up high. Like Green Lake, seagulls ruled the lake. Hawkers sold bird feed and bread for people to feed them. Its... More

Beautiful scenery and lake, but because of the numbers of Chinese tourist and just normal weekend families out to enjoy the park my enjoyment was less than it would be normally. It was also very warm on the day we visited. Good to see so many parents and children out enjoying this area. Flowers abound and were in full color.... More
