Forums > Living in Kunming > China seeks rail link between Kunming and Kolkata

I think the biggest sticking point for the BCIM Corridor is Myanmar. China can build as many railroads and highways to the border (as they are doing in Ruili now), but until the civil wars are permanently under at least some control, as rejected_goods pointed out, nothing will happen inside Myanmar.

Also, China has been pushing this on India for more than a decade with little or no success. Add to this India's closer relations with the United States and the fact that the Indian army just carried out an 'unannounced military action' inside Burmese territory, and this whole thing looks more and more like a pipe dream.

Beijing is pretty damn good with playing the long game though, so maybe if they just wait long enough...

@Geogramatt: the confusion with distances from Jinghong to Manjingfa is my mistake. I've changed the article to read "five kilometers" instead of the erroneous 20. Thanks.



To be fair, this is just my type of bar: live music, nicely priced drinks in a divey setting. Normally I would give 4 stars, but Sunday afternoons on the back patio are simply too good not to give a top rating.


Fantastic little clothing boutique with a wonderful owner.


Had the buffet here recently. A bit expensive but discounts are available for groups. Seafood, including crab, lobster and sushi were all fantastic. European and Chinese dishes were great as well. Beer was included with dinner. Overall, excellent service and food.


Excellent dumplings for omnivores, vegetarians and carnivores. This is a hole in the wall joint with no frills, but the owners are friendly and the dumplings are just right. Five stars if they get higher quality vinegar.


A great little green spot. I would give it five stars if the old orchid garden weren't locked every time I go there. Kunming needs more parks!
