Daguan Pavilion, another tourist attraction, is known for its couplets in China.

It's a pavilion where you can climb up as see the overview of the scenery. It's located in a beautiful park with a beautiful pond. This pond gives you a different sight at different seasons.

According to my tour guide, the pond will be full of

Jan: Plum Blossoms
Mar - Apr : Tulips
Jul-Aug: Lotus
Sept-Oct: Chrysanthemun
Nov-Mar: Seagulls

Wow, different flowers blooming at different seasons, Kunming is really a place with Spring at all 4 seasons!

As I went in Dec, I saw lots and lot of seagulls. It was fun feeding them with bread sold at RMB$1.

See the silver part beside the door in the picture, those are actually couplets. It described the history of Kunming and sentiments of the person who wrote this couplet. The old ladies and the Mr who took the photo with me, aren't they simply adorable?!

Admission fee into the park: RMB$10

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
