Introduction to Green Lake Park (昆明翠湖公园)

Two long banks divide Green Lake into four sections. The banks are lined with an abundance of willow trees and dotted with a range of vibrant lotuses. This distinction between the pale green of the willows and therefore the array of colours within the lotuses makes the park a well-liked destination for nature lovers. One will virtually feel the freshness from the air. 

The serenity and wonder create it a superb place for a picnic, a morning stroll, or a simple a time to sit and reflect. This lush world is hence extolled as a "Kunming's Jade". Visting the Green Lake should be part of any Kunming Sightseeing Tour

Winter is the best season to visit Green Lake Park. The daytime is still warm and sunny in Kunming during Season. And Green Lake attracts red-pecked seagulls from Siberia who migrate there to escape the arctic chill. They attracts many visitors because they swoop and dive across the lake. This charming scene, in which man, birds and nature mingle in such harmony has added to the allure of Green Lake.
