Guandu Ancient Town is an older part of town that has been built up with cheap souvenir shops and little food stalls. It also has some very old pagodas and temples. It is great and nothing special all at the same time. My family had a great time, but going on National Day was not our best decision. It was super crowded. If you have been to Wangfujing in Beijing or the area around Yuyuan Gardens in Shanghai, this is similar. Since it is not in the city center, It might not be worth your time, but if you are nearby, go for it. Like all of Kunming, if you are not Chinese be prepared to have your photo taken.

This old town is really beyond my expectation. Is cleaning and hugh. Spending half day here with my daughter. Lots of local tourist from other state. The temple here are really great, even got 少林寺 branch. Got lots of restaurant and food store here. The only things disappointed me is lots of smoker (seem smoking is a norm in China). Got some local presenting traditional Chinese song and dance. You really can feel the mixture of culture here (old building with modern people here).

From our hotel we took a taxi ...only 30 yuan. There were at least 3 temples and some large pagoda. All very interesting. Most of the buildings and "gates" have been recreated in the ancient style. We ate fish, Chicken and other things on sticks.

I visited Guandu Ancient town several times. Now it has become my favorite place to spend leisure time. I go there by bus number c 85. there are 4 temples here. one is a branch of famous Shaolin temple. lots of handicraft shops are there. lots of restaurants also there. there are some juice shops also. `Tea dot' is my favorite. if you want to spend a nice time with friends, you can visit the place.
