Attractions near the Crowne Plaza Kunming City Centre
A dose of culture
There are few better places in Kunming to immerse yourself in the local culture than at the Yunnan Nationalities Museum. Surrounded by the peaceful and picturesque grounds of the Kunming Dianchi National Tourist Resort, this expansive museum displays a fascinating range of more than 40,000 artefacts.
You can easily spend time exploring and discovering traditional clothing, ancient books and writings, fine folk art, historic pottery and even musical instruments. In addition to its international focus, the Museum also plays host to the most complete collection of cultural costumes and accessories in the whole of China.
Tales from the temple
A real highlight of any trip to Kunming is a visit to the beautiful Yuantong Temple. This revered Buddhist temple is a tranquil place, with surrounding native trees and exotic plants reminding visitors of the natural beauty of China. The Temple doesn’t just hold great cultural significance to its people though; it’s also an important historical site. When you step inside, you might want to take a moment to appreciate the more than 1,200 years of history.
There’s also an impressive 3.5-metre-high copper statue of Buddha and there's a good chance you'll find clusters of people in Buddhist scripture classes, studying in a fantastic onsite calligraphy studio, or praying in tight groups.
