is famed as a plant kingdom, animal kingdom and mineral treasure-house.
Famous for Chinese herbal materials, tobacco leaves, and jewelry,
the variety and range of goods available here is vast.
Due largely to the complicated ethnic
situation in the province, in every specific area inhabited
by different minority groups, a variety of local products
can be found. You can buy these specialties after hard bargaining
at Kunming's Flower & Bird Market and Yunnan Antique City.
In Dali, local bazaars and festivals are good opportunities
to buy local Bai products. Lijiang's Sifang Jie Square and
Xishuangbanna's Olive Plain also have a good selection of
souvenirs and genuine folk handicrafts.In the legendary Shangri-la,
Tibetan artcrafts are essential purchases for most visitors.
