Green Lake Park

Park in Kunming

Come here to people-watch, practise taichi or just hang with the locals and stroll. The roads along the park are lined with wannabe trendy cafes, teahouses and shops. In November, everyone in the city awaits the return of the local favourites, red-beaked seagulls; it’s a treat watching people, er, ‘flock’ to the park when the first one shows up.
