Kunming

Located in the tropical highlands of southwest China, Kunming sits at 6,600 feet (2,011 meters), making it a temperate and mild city. Though Kunming first rose to prominence under the Nanzhao Kingdom, it played a key role at several important points in history; during World War II, it served as a base for the famous Flying Tigers, a squadron of American pilots who dueled Imperial Japanese pilots in the skies over southwest China.

Today, as the gateway to China's southwestern Yunnan province, Kunming has seen a variety of infrastructure projects in recent years, including a new airport that features flights to destinations across Asia. Its conspicuous greenery, wide avenues, and lakeside views make it one of China's most pleasant cities.
