Cross-Bridge Rice Noodles (过桥米线 or Guoqiao Mixian) is one of the most famous dishes in Yunnan. As so often here, 'food' is not only just food, behind this dish with the strange name stands nothing less than a touching story. Setting: Mengzi. Protagonists: Couple in love. Status: Legendary!

The coldest days are over and the sun is shining more or less non-stop these days. Welcome to Kunming's strawberry season in spring! There are plenty of strawberry plantations around, offering its visitors the option to pick fruits themselves and enjoy a great warm day out in the fields.

Rice noodles, or 米线 (Mixian) in Chinese, is the ubiquitous dish in Yunnan. Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner - rice noodles are eaten in all sorts of variants. As a cold snack in summer, in a spicy hot soup or as a classic noodle dish with meat and vegitable toppings. Give it a try!

Combined show and eating events are numerous and popular all over China. The Dish-Serving-Dances in Yunnan's Nanjian Yi Autonomous County is a bit different though. Dancing while serving their guests dishes, is an important etiquette of the local Yi people.

While most places of Yunnan don't get as hot during summer as many other places all over China, cooled and refreshing snacks are still very popular. Made out of all sorts of different ingredients, they have one thing in common: they are cold or even iced dishes.

Rainy season in Yunnan usually starts in May. At the same time it's the start of Yunnan's wild mushroom season and from June onwards they gradually appear on local markets - especially after heavy rain showers. During July and August they also get more and more affordable.

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!
