The rain didn't even come and I was relieved to finally get some more hours of sweet shunshine. Western Hills Park then turned out to be another huge scenic area, some even dare call it the greatest in Central Yunnan. As I've learned to respect my knees I opted for a bus/cable car combi-ticket. Best choice, even more so when it got really, really warm and the path was several kilometres long and at times very steep.

There were a lot of items shown through a very nice gallery and everything was completely made out of synthetic material.

Bronze sculpture from the Western Han dynasty at the Chengdu Museum. This boy is about 2000 years old. There's an awful lot to see there, couldn't even cover all floors in one session.
