If you plan on flying, I suggest you check one of the travel sites like kayak.com, etc. as it depends on your flight dates.

China Eastern and China Southern seem to have flights but some might stop over in Jinghong for example.

Over land is very time consuming and not necessarily cheaper. Thailand does not border China, so you have to go though Laos. There is a boat from Laos to Jinghong which used to be like 100 USD one way and there is a bus from Vientienne to Kunming which was about 70 USD.

I would budget around 1,000 Euros for a month in China but it depends on yr accomm. costs. Difficult to be more specific.

AirAsia obviously is flying into Kunming but you had to go via KL.

I did it some 2 years ago and remember that it was not as easy as one would expect from looking at the map.
