In order to help our students further experience the local Yunnan handicrafts and specials, we organized a trip to the Bird and Flower Market last weekend.
The trip was led by an experienced Keats teacher Ms. Liu, so that the students had more opportunities to practice their Chinese during the trip. It only took 15 minutes to get to the market from the school. The Bird and Flower Market has a long history and has been the most bustling market in Kunming. Many Kunming locals like to wander around the booths after dinner. In this market, you will find jewelleries, home handicrafts, pets like dogs, birds and fish, and plants.
Students showed great interest in the special handicrafts from different minority groups. Wolfgang took a lot of pictures and Pali also showed great interest.
One reason that makes Yunnan such a hot destination for many travellers is because of its diversity of minority groups. Living at Keats brings our students great convenience to learn about the local culture since the school is located in the city center. It is very easy to get around to every corner of the city. They learn Chinese at Keats during the weekdays and have the opportunity to explore the local culture during the weekend.
Students liked this short ship. Some students also bought little gifts for their family and friends.
