Yunnan – Part One – Dali Old City Posted by on Dec 13, 2011 in Culture

After the binge drinking shenanigans of the Qingdao Beer Festival, we flew south to Yunnan province for the second leg of our trip. From the capital city of Kunming, we took a 4-hour bus ride to Dali. In this first video from our Yunnan trip, see a little bit of downtown Kunming, some delicious Yunnan style food in Dali, and the busy streets of a night market.
