Kunming is renowned as a destination to see migrating black-headed gulls. Each winter, tens of thousands of these gulls arrive, delighting visitors and locals alike. With abundant food and a safe wetland environment around Dianchi Lake, the birds are well-fed and welcomed. The gulls also attract researchers, teachers and other experts who study their patterns and behaviors.
Nanqiang Street, the “old street” in Kunming, carries historic and cultural significance — and today, it is thriving with food, shopping and other authentic activities for visitors.
Green Lake Park
Originally a water reservoir, Green Lake Park is a group of four small lakes connected by bridges. Featuring bright pavilions and nearby restaurants, shops and tea houses, it’s a prime viewing spot in the winter when the black-headed gulls arrive from Siberia. Local performers frequently provide entertainment in the park as well.
