It's end of May and by now the rainy season has begun in Kunming and other parts of Yunnan. The majority of Yunnan's yearly precipitation falls between May and October. Not so nice for sighseeing but a blessing for local agriculture and general water supply after about half a year of sunshine!
We recently reported about bird migration to Yunnan. Mainly birds from Sibiria come to Yunnan during the winter months. In most parts of Yunnan it is definitely warmer than in Sibiria but also here it is advisable to protect oneself agains the chill, especially in higher elevation.
