Yunnan is a lovely province, great scenery, great people!

Among Yunnan, ZhongDian (Shangri-la) and Deqin are the places I love MOST, peaceful, quiet, beautiful scenery, yak,
meadows, and most of all FRIENDLY PEOPLE. In Deqin, I didn't feel like I was in China at all, it seems like a paradise somewhere.

Lijiang cannot be missed! There're many places aurrounding Lijiang, good for visiting. eg. Snow Dragon
Mountain, Baisha Village, Tiger Leap, Bai Shui Tai, etc. If you are adventous and enegertic enough, you can arrange your own trakking. You can also do it in a leisure way by hiring a van from Lijiang, usually they charge 250-300 Yuan per
day including drivers and feul. You can visit a few attractions in one day.
Some travellers in my guest house combined together to rent a Jeep, 4 days, enough to see Shangri-la as well.

Deqin is very beautiful, but the road are bumpy and have landslide. But it worth... I think.

Dali is smilar to Lijiang, but more laid back, and the Old Town is smaller than Lijiang, you can stay there 2 days to fell a bit.

Kunming nothing much to see, just another China city, a little cleaner than
Guangzhou. Flights from Kunming to Laos and other places is easy, and more selections though.
