In the southwest part of China, sharing a border with Myanmar, Laos, and Vietnam, there lies Yunnan province. Mountains make up most of its territory (the maximum height is 6,740 meters). However, moving south, the mountain terrain gradually transforms into picturesque hills and valleys with fertile soil.
The weather in this part of China is warm and humid; the climate is similar to a tropical one, which makes agriculture the main occupation of the local people. And, they are very successful at it! High quality Chinese red tea, sugar cane, tobacco, and rice are cultivated here.
