Best time to visit Lijiang:

Spring (March to April): This period sees flowers in full bloom, particularly the famous cherry blossoms in Kunming and the stunning rapeseed flowers in Luoping. The weather is mild and pleasant.

Autumn (September to November): The weather is generally cool and dry during this time, making it perfect for outdoor activities. You'll witness vibrant autumn foliage in places like Lijiang and Shangri-La.

However, Yunnan has diverse landscapes and climates across its regions due to its varying altitudes. For instance, places like Kunming have a temperate climate year-round, while higher-altitude areas like Shangri-La can be much cooler.
