I am planning to visit Kunming from Bangkok. The places I want to visit are - Dongchuan Red Land, World Horti-Expo Garden, Jiuxiang Scenic Area, Jiuxiang Scenic Area and may be Taihe Palace(not sure about this one).
So, can you please suggest me that what would be best to visit and if 4 days is sufficient to visit? And, may be help me with an sample itinerary?
Thanks a lot!
P.S - one more question. Daguan Pavilion is same as Dongchuan Red Land? If not same then I want to include is too.
I am an American currently live in Kunming, China for four years now (for a total of 13 years in China). So, far it is the BEST city in the world for me to live in and I hope/expect to live here forever. However, if for some reason I can't stay here at some point (e.g. China won't issue me another visa), I want to have a backup city for me to move to. And I want to KNOW what my backup city is in advance.
I have several criteria for my backup city (to try to match Kunming or better):
1) Good weather year around (Kunming almost always gets up to 15 degrees (Celsius) each day in the winter and rarely goes above 30 degrees in the summer)
2) Great prices compared to USA (it would cost me six times more to live in the USA given my current level of living here in Kunming: I have a 2700 square foot luxury apartment for $500 USD per month; my personal assistant works for me for less than $3 per hour, etc.)
3) I would like to live in a city of 1,000,000 or more, although I might accept as low at 500,000.
4) The residents of this city should have a friendly attitude towards Americans.
These are my basic requirements. Do you know of any cities in your travels that might fit?
With much appreciation...
