      Kunming is the capital of Yunnan province. Yunnan is one of China’s southern provinces, bordering Vietnam and Laos to the south, Myanmar to the West, and mountainous Tibet to the northwest. This makes Kunming, near the center of Yunnan, a perfect springboard for further travel in Asia. When Keats students, especially long-term students, find themselves a little tired when studying Chinese, they usually travel to Vietnam or Thailand for about 4 to 5 days.

      HOW DOES KUNMING COMPARE WITH BEIJING & SHANGHAI?

      BETTER WEATHER

      No matter where you are from, you will appreciate the mild climate here. Compared to other cities in China, Kunming is one of the most livable cities due to its great weather. If you want a city with the best climate, learn Chinese in Kunming, Yunnan.

      CLEANER AIR

      Clear blue skies with fluffy white clouds make everyday life in Kunming pleasant. Thinking of Beijing or Harbin in China, unfortunately, brings to mind images of masked faces in thick grey smog. For most people, this rules out the idea of living in big cities in China for an extended period. Fortunately for Kunming, this is really not an issue. For the capital city of Yunnan Province, Kunming experiences some of the lowest levels of air pollution in China.

      MORE AFFORDABLE

      Kunming in Yunnan is one of the most affordable cities to live in, covering everything from food to apartments. Plenty of areas are suited to foreigners at a fraction of the price you would pay in Beijing/Shanghai, while still allowing you to experience the real China. If you have a tight budget, Kunming in Yunnan is perfect for you.

      MORE CULTURAL DIVERSITY

      Despite China’s fast development, Kunming in Yunnan retains traditional Chinese culture making it a very interesting and fun blend. Yunnan hosts almost half of the Chinese ethnic minorities, meaning there is an endless diversity of culture with a rich history – good news for food lovers. China has 56 minority groups and Yunnan is home for 26 minority groups.

      SMOOTHER TRANSITION

      Affordability, a smooth visa process, and a relaxed class environment make for an unbeatable combination. If you are looking for the most affordable Mandarin Chinese language program in China, welcome to study at Keats in Kunming, Yunnan.
