Consul-General Christopher Lim's Blog - "Growing Australian presence in Yunnan"
"Bordering Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, Yunnan feels at first to be a blend of China and Southeast Asia, but it is much more than that. The province is home to 25 of the 56 officially recognised ethnic groups in China; these groups have lived for centuries in the mountainous terrain which runs across the borders between China and its neighbours. To this day, many ethnic Dai, Yi, Bai and other groups still have close relatives in neighbouring countries who come and go often." Click here to read more.
