Kunming is the golf capital of China. With 15 courses in play within two hours’ drive of the city and another 12 planned or being built, it has one of the largest and best collections of golf courses in Asia.
Take a break from golf and enjoy Brilliant Resort’s 25 hot carbonated mineral spring pools, the private sand beach, spa treatments, Pu’Er tea ceremonies and tea-drinking experiences, and Michelin Guide-standard cuisine.
There is no shortage of attractions in and around Kunming. The city, founded almost 2800 years ago, has an absorbing history with many fine temples close to the downtown area, as well as at West Forest Hill Park, 15 kilometres away.
One the best reasons to visit Kunming is Yunnan cuisine, the signature dish of which is ‘Across the Bridge Noodles’ or guo qiao mixian, a hot pot of chicken stock with meat and vegetables, that can be found in numerous restaurants.
