Sandan Town is 22 km from the county seat of Fumin. Because of the various natural pools and brooks, the water capacity of the Town reaches as many as 4 million cubic metres. For this reason, Sandan is called the Watery Town in Kunming, and locals have the saying that "If you hoe the land, you can find water immediately."
In July each year, the lotus flowers bloom in many places. Sandan as the nearest Watery Town to Kunming attracts lots of visitors to admire the Flowers at Liaokuoying Village.
