About the weather:

Generally speaking, weather in Yunnan is very mild on the 2000 m level, which can be very steady in all year round. The average temperature during the day time in Summer will be 21 or 70 , and in Winter, it will be around 15 or 60 . Take the 2000 meter level as reference, every 1000 meters or 3280ft. higher, the temperature will be 6 /or 42 lower, on the contrary, every 1000 meters or 3280 feet lower, the temperature will be 6 /or 42 higher.

Rain drops in most area from about the middle of June and last to beginning of October, and the whole winter will be clean and dry with snow from time to time.

 

About the Food:

Chinese cuisine is a large scale of topic, in terms of Yunnan, we usually serve the food very similar to the Sichuan Cuisine, with the specialty of hot, spicy and oily, most of the time, the tourist restaurant will serve regular flavor without those strong taste, funny if you want to try the local flavor, don’t forget to tell your escort to prepare.

As for beverage, almost all the restaurant concerned will provide various drinks to choose, such as Coca Cola, Sprite, Pepsi, local beer. But, most of the place the diet Coca is NOT AVIALABLE.

Something recommend:

Roast Duck

Light Fried Goats Cheese

Crossing Bridge Rice Noodles

Roast Toufu

Milk ‘Fan’

 

About the Tip:

Tips now have widely accepted in China, and this is NOT compulsory but a proper way to appreciate those who provide better service than you suppose to have. Usually, you don’t have to tip in the restaurant, for the bill has already covered about 10%-15% service charge, but for those who serve you, such as tour guide, driver, porter, etc, a proper tip is a good way to show your satisfaction and thanks to them.
