Living in Kunming
Stroll to Green Lake for people-watching or birding in the bamboo groves. Join a soccer team or chess club. Gather a group for a night of karaoke. Head out on your bike for an afternoon in the countryside. Spend your Saturday at the Stone Forest. Savor a steaming bowl of guoqiao mixian (“cross the bridge” rice noodles) with friends and teachers.
The program is based at Yunnan University in the cultural heart of Kunming. YNU’s lovely campus has everything you need—a library, sports facilities, stores, cafés. The campus area is also a public transportation hub, making it easy to explore downtown Kunming and beautiful Yunnan Province.
Housing & Meals
You’ll share a room with a local roommate in YNU’s guesthouse, set up just like a dormitory. Meals can be at the YNU cafeteria or nearby restaurants. Try local favorites like pan-fried goat cheese or pineapple rice.
