How to Plan Yunnan Tours

The above itineraries are all well-designed based on our own experiences and feedback from our customers. Here are some tips to help you make the decision out of your interests, timing and budget.

How much time do you have in Yunnan?

Yunan refers to the vast land of the whole provinces. A short stay could only allow you a taste of one or two cities like Kunming, Dali or Lijiang which has flight connections with the other big cities. We always suggested at least 4 days to cover Kunming and Lijiang, 6 days to add in Dali, 8 days to go further to Shangrila. And 3-4 more days to cater for special interests like Tiger leaping gorge hiking, Dongchuan Red Land and Yuanyuang Rice Terraces Fields Photography. That all depends on your time and interests. Send a simple request to tailor make a Yunnan trip.   

When do you want to travel?

Climate vary a lot in different region of Yunnan. The northwest area sits on the high plateau bordering Tibet, which is depressingly cold in winter. The right season for Shangri-la is from May to October with flowers, trees and crystal-clear lakes. July and August are the rainy season, no hiking trips to Tiger Leaping gorge is suggested. Yuanyang Terraces Fields and Dongchuan Red Land turn on different faces in different season. The hot destinations of Kunming, Dali and Lijiang are suitable for travel all year around.

Chain hotels in Yunnan are comparatively less than other popular big cities. Nature and culture lovers are interested in the homestays, boutiques or luxury resorts, to have close contact with the local people and their culture. Prices vary a lot from their location and decoration.    


Estimated budget for hotels in Yunnan city: 3-star chain hotels cost $70-90 on average; 4 stars are $90-$120; 5 star $1520-$200, resorts are $200+.


How to get to Yunnan?

Yunnan is a province in southern corner of China, bordering Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam. It has tight connections with south Asia via the capital city of Kunming, as well as all other major domestic cities. Getting around Yunnan is mainly by train and road journey. Different from the big cities, a well-organized transfer is always necessary in this area.
