Kunming Botanical Garden

The plant kingdom

The Kunming Botanical Garden, founded in 1938, is the largest research base of subtropical plant diversity and seed conservation in southwest China. It has a boulevard of gingko and maple trees. In late autumn, yellow leaves are flying, red maple is like fire, and the scenery is intoxicating, just like the scroll of Tang Dynasty poet Du mu's poem “I stop my carriage to enjoy the evening sight of maple trees, the frosty leaves look redder than flowers in early spring.”


Yunnan University

Scholarly and gold, the campus filled with gingko.

Established in 1922, Yunnan University, formerly known as the Private Donglu University, has a history of nearly 100 years and is one of the earliest comprehensive universities in western China. The ginkgo avenue from Wenyuan Building to Huize Building in the Donglu campus of Yunnan university is one of the most beautiful sceneries in the school. The gingko trees with luxuriant foliage are full of gold and so bright. Walk along the path, watch the ginkgo falling and breath the ginkgo's fragrance that is full of autumn atmosphere.


Jiaoye Park

Red maple is everywhere and the autumn flow is concentrated.

Located at Yu’an Mountain in the northern suburb of Kunming city, the Jiaoye Park is 10 kilometers away from Kunming downtown, covering an area of 62.5 hectares.

Looking around, the red maple forest is well-arranged and layer upon layer, enhancing each other’s beauty with the green trees and forest, forming a beautiful autumn picture.
