Feed the gull along Dianchi Lake or Cuihu Lake


Located in downtown Kunming, Cuihu Lake is shared by citizens and tens of thousands of sea gulls during each March, April, October and November. Kunming people have developed a special way to feed their feathered pets, rather than throw bread into lake, they put them along the railings, so both gulls and Cuihu Lake will not be poisoned or polluted. Local artists, musicians will stage Beijing opera, martial art or dance. It is time to experience the vibrant and authentic life in southwest China.
