Forums > Food & Drink > Best / Worst Kunming Food

Dazzer you are right, stomach cancer rate is exceptionally high compared to rest of world. Many of my chinese friends have more stomach related problems than i do, but they do not want to acknowledge them. They claim just their bodies purifying and normal.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Return air ticket required for L-visa?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Need Visa Advice

I am in USA visiting family with plans to return to Kunming on August 7th or earlier. I have a marriage resident permit which expires on August20th. I will not be renewing but would like to stay in Kunming. First question can i get a 30 day extension before the 20th which would give me enough time to decide what i would like to do in future? Second question is I can get a 10 year visa and I have an invite letter, what would my effective date be? Would it be when i plan to return to China or the date my resident permit expires thus giving me 60 days from that date? Will the new 10 year visa void my resident permit? Any advice would be most appreciated.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Foreigner Police Registration

Police officer friend of mine in Beihai said we did not need to register to keep track of us. Said main two reasons was people would sometimes complain of foreigners living in their building and police could say yes we know so what, and 2. In an emergency they wanted to be able to especially take care of foreigners. Make sure we were safe and provided for.

Metro has many things i cannot find other places, but i still find it a frustrating place to shop sometimes. Seem to frequently be out of things. For example their was very little fresh meat to choose from and actually they were out of many things and i was their just after lunch. They had no loaves of toasting bread and could not tell my wife when they would be getting more in. In looking at the fresh date on Hormel ham it had expired in September. However for first time i was able to shop all the aisles. Not filled with merchandise to be stocked or fork lifts.


Ate lunch today. Server was attentive. Food was good but a little slow in coming. Looking forward to eating dinner some evening and trying salad bar i have heard so much about.


To all those expecting an authentic Irish Pub come on we are after all living in China. I have eaten there several times and the burger is still the best in Kunming in my opinion. Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. Place is not perfect but what is in CHina. Owners have been wonderful in opening up early for special events like the US Super Bowl.


Went for Pizza special tonight. Had the Barbeque chicken and it was very good. Also enjoyed an exceptionally large order of French Fries. Everything was good tonight and owners where not there.


Wonderful place. Evening price is 88rmb which includes large salad buffet and they bring out skewers of the best beef i have had in China, also chicken, pork, sausages, goose, corn on cob to your table. They seem to slow down after 8 but before that constantly waiters bringing fresh meat and cut it onto your plate. Have eaten there 5 times in past 2 months and has always been excellent food and even better have never left with any stomach ills.
