Some said this place is created when God over spilled the colour palette.
It is hard to imagine that I could be having breakfast at Red Land (Dong Chuan, Yunnan, China) and having coffee at night in Malaysia at night. This magical land is so within reach but yet unknown to many who visited Kunming City.
The views are stunning and the hard works by the farmers on this highland (~2,500m to 2,700m) are simply touching. This could be illustrated by the picture below, see how the entire harsh mountain range has been cultivated into productive land?
Red Land more well known to the photography travellers. When we saw this momentary rays of lights from our car, our driver almost rushed to a stoppable area for us take this picture. It disappeared in less than 1 minute later. Everyone is having fun chasing after the light.

Kunming City is the gateway into Yunnan.
The city is surrounding by mountain range thus maintain a relatively constant spring-like weather throughout the year.
Most tourists will use Kunming as a rest stop before proceeding to more remote destinations.
Guandu is a ‘refurbished’ old town about 10KM from Kunming city centre.
If you have half day to spare in Kunming city, taking a short trip to Guandu could be a good option to consume few hours.
Guandu reserved few temples dated back to Dang Dynasty.
Since 2008, Sao Lin Temple has acquired few temples in Guandu as ‘branch’ temple. You can see monks practicing martial arts in these temples.
