Kunming to Luang Prabang SummaryAdd to Shortlist
A laidback city to visit, Kunming is the capital of Yunnan Province and is known as 'the city of eternal spring' due to its temperate climate.
Shilinzhen houses the provocative Shilin stone forest. Said to be 270 million years old, these greyish limestone formations are an impressive sight to behold.
Located in a lush tropical rainforest close to the Laos border, Xishuangbanna is an atypical area of China where a number of colourfully-dressed ethnic minorities live. Jinghong sits alongside the Lancang River and is a good place to explore the minority villages and rainforest that surround the city.
With the gorgeous Nam Ha Protected Area located close by, Luang Namtha is lovely town to relax in and soak up the beauty of Laos's wilderness.
Nestled in the hills of northern Laos, the tranquil city of Luang Prabang is studded with ornate temples, brimming with colourful markets and enriched by French colonial architecture.
