Okay if you do not mind getting woke by honking horns at 6am. Dongfeng is busy late night and early morning.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Where to buy large clothes?

2-3 years ago i bought a lot of larger size clothes at an outlet store on Wuxi road. It was on the east side between Renmin road and the Yunnan Hospital of Traditional Medicine. Not sure of name of store and not even sure if still there. Friend told me about the store and found it by looking through the doors of several stores. Had 40-42 waist pants in 34 length and a lot of XXL shirts.

Rents are very high for retail space in Kunming and landlords seem unwilling to negotiate. Reason so many existing spaces are empty and a ton of new spaces never rented. Some more than 5 years old and still empty. If you do have a successful business seems landlords very often want to raise rent even in middle of existing lease.

If you like walking, best way to get to falls is just walking on very nice new parkway along the Panlong River. Just do not go on weekends or holidays. Also i went one evening for a walk thinking the falls would have lighting and it was dark. Sign 2 weeks ago gave hours for viewing falls from 9-5.



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.
