Just walking down to the temple complex is worth the trip. You can walk around the temple very easily and enjoy the wonderful architecture on display

One of the most fascinating sites I have ever visited. Entering the temple complex you will forget being in the middle of a loud, quickly developing mega-city. Take time, don't rush - it is worth spending there hours.

within waking distance from Chuanxingulou metro station (line 2), a beautiful temple site with ponds, pagodas etc. Small entrance fee to pay ( maybe around RMB 6) Good to spend time up to an hour

This Buddhist temple was impressive, with many places to explore. Keep walking in to find some lovely surprises. It's so peaceful and beautiful. There were many monks walking around when we were there (snapping photos with their phones!).

Beautiful temple. Tranquil. Walk the entire grounds. Eat at the low-cost vegetarian restaurant. Seems historic although obviously restored. Best temple in Kunming itself.

Nice place to spend time there, Paid about 16RMB for entrance and lightening. It looks like a Tibetian Culture temple and located in side city. Not bad we can go see the different culture and their prayers.

Took a bus there. Not too crowded in the morning. Paid ¥6 to enter the temple. 古色古香,非常舒适宁静. Spend some time visit different shrines, making prayers. The beggars outside were quite aggressive but can't be bothered.

The airport is about 30~60 minutes away from the city and traffic there is really unpredictable and can really bad if you're caught. I think if you would still like to leave the airport to take a breather, go to Green Lake... More
