    Night of Guandu like spirited away in the bustling scene, Guandu ancient town is not very large, up to 1 hour, eat, listen to the local characteristics of the folk songs in Yunnan province, look at the unique local dances (square dance) of thick local flavor. Have odd lane in the town to be careful (I accidentally walked in and quickly out of) alley stand a lot of scantily clad long legs (you know).

    English version below is an ancient village to the city of Kunming, so access is easy. To January 2017 only there in service a line of metro (the No. 1), but a (Erji Lu) station is about 10 blocks from the central square of the village. There several temples and ancient pagodas, all well preserved or restored. Also a Pailou and a quite nice pedestrian promenade. But the side streets are not so picturesque, and to moves one of the central square is emerging a rather seedy commercial suburb. Mixed with new shops and houses there are some old houses, almost in ruins. In the plaza and nearby there are several restaurants and shops, but the prices are quite high since it is a very touristic place. This is an ancient town which now is part of Kunming city area, so it can be easily reached. In January 2017 there was in service only one subway line, nr. 1, but it had an (Erji Lu) station at about 10 blocks to the main square of Guandu Ancient Town. There are some old temples and pagodas, nice pics, and also take a Pailou and to main street to remove beautiful. But once you go to the surrounding streets, buildings migrant, and there is only a few old decayed houses trapped in massive blocks of chinese modern buildings or monuments. In the square there are many restaurants and stores, but prices are quite high.
