Better to visit at night as the 2 arches were beautifully lit up and shining like gold. The square was packed with people. The surrounding shops were selling same trinkets and junk food. Just beside the square is a shop with an unique name "F-House",...More

As this is part of the shopping area, it's not too time consuming to pass by. The Yunan noodles shop overthere is good.

Europeans will be disappointed. Nothing is historic there. Another newly created "old town". A lot of shops they sell the same. Food is very bad there. it´s just another moneymaking theme park. You want to see some old buildings go to the old bird and...More

It is a landmark and a popular spot for visiting tourist; plenty of shopping in the immediate area. Good atmosphere and you could walk to the nearby high end shopping pedestrian street as well.

At daytime, you might go there and say "just two arches"... at nights, with the colored lights, it's more beautiful to see. I can't say it's a "must-see" in Kunming, but it's a nice walk from NanPing Street to JinMaFang.

Nice place to take pictures. It is also the centre of town, especially at night where it is all lit up and lively. More interesting is a short walk (10 mins) through one of the gate and you come to the old quarter of town...More

Nothing much to say about the arches Jinma-Biji. Both arches facing each other only a few steps away. The streets from Zhengyi Road leading to the 2 arches are busy. Construction along the road makes this place very congested & dusty. During night, the scene...More
