Union pay cards work in most Thai (and Burmese..) ATMs. The withdrawal fee is fixed (about 10rmb) so better to withdraw the money you need for the trip in fewer translations.

Not sure about Indo

Forums > Living in Kunming > Divorce - Chinese Style

Most likely the residence permit won't be cancelled as a divorce court won't communicate with other government offices unless the husband asks that they do.

So the residence permit won't be cancelled unless the husband asks for that.

Even if the husband does not cancel the permit when the divorce happens she won't be able to renew it.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Where to buy DVD

The place on Yuantong Jie between the LianYun hotel and the Fudian bank towards Beimen Jie has a good selection and they will use their computer to find movies that you can't see in the shelves. They are also honest about the quality of the movies. Some people may want to see a movie as soon as possible but if that's not what you want they will tell you to wait till they have a better quality version.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Building a prefab home

If you could consider the countryside around Kunming than you can rent land from the local village head for about 3-4000rmb a mu a year. As long as you are able to move if the lease is broken then this would be an option.

@Xiefei, I remember about in the late 1990's that Beijing had regulated that public toilets be free and that if you needed to use a toilet that you bars and restaurants had to let you use their toilets even if you were not a customer.

Places like Yunnan implement laws differently. For eg: Tobacco advertising is illegal in China, but in Yunnan you wouldn't know that.



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.
