Kunming is the 30th largest city of China,
and the 116th largest city of the World.
Kunming is the capital and largest city in Yunnan Province, Southwest China.
Known as Yunnan-Fu until the 1920s,
today it is a prefecture-level city and the political,
economic, communications and cultural centre of the province
as well as the seat of the provincial government.
Kunming is also called the Spring city due to its weather.
Kunming long profited from its position on the caravan roads
through to South-East Asia, India and Tibet.
Early townships in the southern edge of Lake Dianchi
can be dated back to 279 BC,
although they have been long lost to history.
