#9 of 68 in Things to do in Kunming
Founded as a privately run institution, Yunnan University began enrollment in April 1923 and ranks among the earliest models of a university in southwest China. Occupying an area of 43 hectares (104 acres), a large portion of which encompasses the impressive architecture of the learning facilities, the grounds afford pleasant strolls under leafy ginkgo trees, with stretches of cherry and plum. Extend your visit in the adjacent park, where bird-watchers might spy the Siberian black-headed gull in winter.
