Yes, as cfredo mentioned Yunnan has many tourist attractions such as the Stone Forest, Dali, Lijiang, Erhai Lake, Dianchi Lake. Come to think about it its tourism industry is probably bigger than Tianjin, let along Shenzhen which I believe has zero tourism value for foreigners. I have seen more foreign tourists in Yunnan than Tianjin or Guangzhou. Unlike Guangxi and Guizhou Province, Yunnan is far from the "one of the poorest, least developed parts of China."

Is that the official tourism campaign of the provincial government of Yunnan?

That is a film for Shanghai Expo' two years ago. To 'Geography': Kunming is not only a tourist hub, it is acting a more important role recently on China's next round opening door policy especially to Southeast and South Asian regions.

Great shots. The interior lighting of the terminal is beautiful.

Also, did China Eastern change their livery a bit? There is more writing after the "China Eastern" titles that wasn't there before. Plus it looks like a sticker was applied on all of those jets.

Edit: It looks like the Yunnan branch of China Eastern.

Yeah, this was the Yunnan Airlines which was merged with China Eastern. That's why they still have the former logo of Yunnan Airlines (green peacock feather). You can see it on the planes in the background.

Question, when did Yunnan Airlines merged with China Eastern?

Thanks for the pictures danchun. I miss the regional Chinese airlines that went away or merged with the larger airlines. The liveries were classic and beautiful.

I never knew that consolidation within the Chinese aviation started that early with China Eastern

Yunnan province is the second poorest per capita of all Chinese provinces. Its GDP is ranked 24 out of all 31 provinces. A province that poor is not going to have many Americans, Canadians, Brits, and other native English speakers to either teach English or practice English with. Poor English skills will sink a city and airport's ability to attract foreign tourists and businesses.
