Yunnanyi Tours

Yunnanyi (云南驿), a now nearly forgotten village along the Burma Road ones was an important location in Yunnan. Yunnanyi is now undergoing renovation and preservation work and is the location of two little museums.Yunnanyi was an important airbase during WW-II. From Yunnanyi the AVG (American Volunteer Group better known as the Flying Tigers) operated attacks against the Japanese Army coming up the Burma Road and played an important role in struggle over the control of the air in western Yunnan and northern Burma.

Yunnanyi means 'staging post Yunnan' and is the origin of the name of the province. Going to Yunnan meant before going to Yunnanyi. The east/west road known as the southern Silk Road and the north/south tea horse trails going to Tibet all passed the fertile Yunnanyi valley. Yunnanyi was as well laying on the pilgrim trail to the Jizu mountain Buddhist monasteries, home of the golden temple before it was moved to Kunming. The old Burma Road, the modern motorway and the railway line all pass now through the valley without stopping. The place that gave Yunnan its name is now mostly know as the name of a piss stop, the "Yunnanyi motorway service area".
