[InKunming--Kunming]  A list of 50 China's Best Summer Tourist Cities 2014 was evaluated by Asia-Pacific Environment Protection Association (APEPA) and other associations on April 11. Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, along with Guiyang, capital of Guizhou Province, are the best summer resorts in China according to the list.

Kunming is entitled as an international spring city, and Guiyang is bestowed the capital of summer resorts.

Kunming has been listed as one of the world's best summer resort cities for eight times. There are several reasons for regaining the crown for Kunming. Affected by plateau monsoon climate, Kunming is under year-round balmy conditions. The city is suitable to be visited throughout the year, especially from March to October. Besides climate advantages of Kunming itself, city construction and environment improvement are also very important reasons. 

Because of geographical proximity and convenient transportation, Kunming has used to be a backyard garden to spend summer holidays for Southeast Asian and South Asian tourists. About 8 million tourists visit Kunming in July and August every year.

Altogether 10 cities of Yunnan made their marks on the list. Beside Kunming, the other 9 cities are Lijiang(丽江), Lincang(临沧), Yuxi(玉溪), Pu'er(普洱), Dali(大理), Baoshan(保山), Qujing(保山), Zhaotong(昭通) and Chuxiong(楚雄).
