大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!在之前的podcast里,有人评论说让我介绍一下,如果去中国旅游可以去什么地方。今天我想和大家推荐一个我在中国最喜欢的地方。如果你喜欢好天气,喜欢晒太阳,这个地方一定适合你;如果你喜欢吃美食,你也不能错过这里;如果你喜欢看大自然的风景,那么你也一定要来这个地方;如果你喜欢学习不同的当地文化,那么这里也是一个理想的地方。这里,就是中国云南。

如果我只有半年的时间,只可以去中国的一个地方,我想我不会选择北京,上海等大城市,而是一定会选择云南省。云南省在中国的西南边境。它的西方是缅甸,南方是老挝,东南方是越南。而且在云南省,超过百分之三十三的人都是少数民族。因为这两个原因,云南的当地文化非常多样。在云南,你可以体验东南亚的文化,也可以学习中国少数民族的文化。

云南省有山有河也有湖。如果你喜欢远足的话,你在云南一定会看到各种各样的风景。云南的气候也很舒服。它的省会叫昆明。昆明也有另外一个名字,叫“春城”。意思是一年四季都是春天的城市。云南的夏天不会特别热,冬天也不会特别冷。中文有一个成语,“四季如春”,意思是一个地方的气候在一年四季都像春天一样舒服。我觉得“四季如春”这个成语就是用来形容云南的。但是,云南也有很多雪山。如果你喜欢雪,冬天的时候你也可以去雪山。

云南当地的文化也很多样。云南有很多少数民族,他们很多都有不同的语言和生活习惯。我在云南旅游的时候,认识了一些纳西族的少数民族朋友,他们给我看了他们的文字,实在是太美了,每个字都是一幅画。我在MaoMi Chinese的网站上放了一些图片,欢迎你们去看看。当然,因为云南的文化很多样,当地的食物也很多样。我特别喜欢云南菜,云南菜是我最喜欢的菜之一。其中,我最喜欢的食物之一就是云南的米线。米线,就是大米做的面条。我在云南的时候,几乎一日三餐都去吃米线,因为实在太好吃了!云南的食物很特别。在云南,人们会吃各种各样的鲜花。云南的鲜花饼特别有名。在云南,你也可以吃各种各样的昆虫。听说特别好吃,但是我还没吃过,因为我太胆小了!如果你的胆子大,你可以去云南试一试各种各样的昆虫!

说了这么多云南的好,如果真的去云南,我们可以去哪儿呢?说实话,云南有名的景点太多了。如果你喜欢古镇,也就是古老的小镇,你可以去大理,丽江,还有束河,等等。在这些地方,你可以看到古代的云南是怎么样的。如果你喜欢大自然,你可以去普洱,玉龙雪山,也可以去泸沽湖。这些地方有山有水,美丽动人。如果你想体验一下城市的生活,那么你可以去昆明。昆明的交通很方便,当地人的生活非常悠闲,也有特别好好吃的东西。

你去过中国的什么地方?你会给我们推荐什么地方?欢迎在网站上给我们留言哦!

Hello everyone! Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese! In a previous podcast, someone commented that they would like me to introduce where they can go if they travel to China. Today I want to recommend to you one of my favourite places in China. If you like good weather and sunbathing, this place must be suitable for you; if you like to eat delicious food, you can't miss this place; if you like to see the scenery of nature, then you must also come to this place; if you like to study different local culture, then this is also an ideal place. This place is Yunnan, China.

If I only had half a year and could only go to one place in China, I don’t think I will choose Beijing, Shanghai and other big cities, but would definitely choose Yunnan Province. Yunnan Province is on the southwestern border of China. It is bordered by Myanmar to the west, Laos to the south, and Vietnam to the southeast. In Yunnan Province, more than 33 percent of the people are ethnic minorities. For these two reasons, the local culture in Yunnan is very diverse. In Yunnan, you can experience the culture of Southeast Asia, and you can also learn about the culture of Chinese ethnic minorities.

Yunnan Province has mountains, rivers and lakes. If you like hiking, you will definitely see all kinds of scenery in Yun. Yunnan's climate is also very comfortable. Its provincial capital is Kunming, and Kunming also has another name, which is "Spring City". It means a city where its climate is like spring all year round. Yunnan's summer is not particularly hot, and winter is not particularly cold. There is an idiom in Chinese, "the four seasons are like spring", which means that the climate of a place is as comfortable as spring in all seasons. I think the idiom "the four seasons are like spring" is used to describe Yunnan. However, Yunnan also has many snow-capped mountains. If you like snow, you can also go to Snow Mountain in winter.

Yunnan's local culture is also very diverse. There are many ethnic minorities in Yunnan, and many of them have different languages and living habits. When I was travelling in Yunnan, I met some friends from the Naxi minority. They showed me their writings. They were so beautiful. Every word was like a picture. I put some pictures of the Naxi writing on MaoMi Chinese's website and you are welcome to take a look. Of course, because Yunnan's culture is diverse, so are the local foods. I especially like Yunnan cuisine, which is one of my favourites. Among them, one of my favourite foods is Yunnan rice noodles. Rice noodles are noodles made from rice. When I was in Yunnan, I ate rice noodles almost three meals every day, because it was so delicious! Yunnan food is very special. In Yunnan, people eat all kinds of flowers. Yunnan's flower cakes are particularly famous. In Yunnan, you can also eat all kinds of insects. I heard that it is very delicious, but I haven't tried it because I am too timid! If you are brave, you can go to Yunnan and try all kinds of insects!

Having said so much about Yunnan, if we really go to Yunnan, where can we go? To be honest, there are too many famous scenic spots in Yunnan. If you like ancient towns, you can go to Dali, Lijiang, and Shuhe, etc. In these places, you can see what ancient Yunnan was like. If you like nature, you can go to Pu'er, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, or Lugu Lake. There are waters and mountains in these places, which are beautiful and moving. If you want to experience city life, then you can go to Kunming. The traffic in Kunming is very convenient. The local people live a very leisurely life, and there is also delicious food.

Where have you been in China? Where would you recommend us? Welcome to leave us a message on the website!
