I went to that Ramada hotel about 2 years ago for a government meeting, later I tried to look it up on the Ramada webpage but it wasn't there,,I emailed Ramada and they told me it was a fake Ramada,,,

Now I see its on their webpage...

Forums > Travel Yunnan > residence permits. no longer multi entry?

I agree, but it really does seem that the PSB's Visa department is "learning as they go" and their own interpretation of the rules are also changing.

Resident Permits allow you to come and go from China, but only while they are still valid. These permits must be renewed by the PSB that issues them.

The new airport is to the east of the city centre, on the map it doesn't seem to be closer to Chengong than the city centre.

Is there a direct airport bus to Chenggong? Seems quite far to travel. I guess it will be easier when the subway connection is working.


No results found.


Its one of President Xi's new policies that local governments are being downgraded with more direct reporting to the Provincial government.

The idea/theory is that with a more direct governance that things are managed more efficiently. The only question is ask is if the Provincial government can grow fast enough to absorb all this new responsibility.

From March this year they already have taken direct control of the previous suburbs of Kunming; Anning, Songming and DaBanqiao.

When Qiu He left the city government to the provincial government he probably knew this coming.



when we renovated we took our workmen to B&Q to select materials from their excellent range if samples. Then with that list in hand we went to the construction market near Mingbo bridge and got the same materials at either half or one third of the B&Q price.

It's a good place for window shopping.
