Forums > Living in Kunming > Kunming Map

The Listings section of the website is currently getting a major update in design and functionality. Integrating a different map system is part of the todo list.

For now one will have to use a VPN to be able to see the maps on GoKunming.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Current Camera Repair Recommendations?

There's a shop on Huancheng Nan Lu, just east of Beijing Lu, on the north end of the street. They have a team of people in the back of the small shop that specialise in repairing and cleaning cameras.

There used to be 2 camera shops on that little strip. The first one (coming from Beijing Lu) sells mostly new camera equipment. Go to the second one. It doesn't look like much, but they know what they're doing.

I don't think they speak English.

You could catch the water in a bucket to use for a top-loader washing machine or to flush the toilet, while you're waiting for it to warm up.

@Sarah1988: It appears Geogramatt has already answered your question. My room in Puzhehei Village was very basic and 120 yuan a day, including three meals. You can spend several days there if you enjoy exploring the area, other than just visiting the regular tourist destinations.

@Bluppfisk: Thanks. :)

A global search function is coming soon.

@debaser: The search disappearing when changing sections is related to our top-down approach of how information is ordered. Does it feel unintuitive?

We are considering different views for the article section, with an option to see larger images. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by how Kickass Torrents arranges their forums. Could you elaborate?

@redjon77: Avatars will follow later as well.

@Ocean: We feel generally the search function is delivering more relevant results now. We'll keep testing and improving it though. Forums are tougher, because sometime threads may come up in top due to posts within the thread getting 'high scores' on your particular search query.



Just found out a package I have been waiting for for more than a month arrived 3 weeks ago. Nobody bothered to call me (my phone number is on the box), or deliver the package. If you're expecting anything, make sure to call them every day, or, if you can, go there every day to make them check the tracking number.


Went there on New Year's and the place was packed with pro DJs playing in room 1. Downstairs is a great place to chill out if want a more relaxed vibe. They have a few things left to smoothen out, but otherwise this is as close as you're going to get to a western club experience in Kunming!


The Green Lake Moonlight Corner has always been a personal favourite for its atmosphere, location and good food. Recently had a chance to try the 'northern' incarnation at the brand new Xindu Longcheng shopping mall and wasn't disappointed.

Service, hospitality and food quality were all up to standards. I don't believe there's a better option for Thai food at the Beichen area.

Find the entrance on the side of the building that has the Uniqlo shop at the first floor.


Recently had two massages here – they're good if you ask them to go a bit softer on you. Also had a cupping (火罐) treatment which didn't do much for me at the time, but I've heard very good things about when done more frequently. A one-hour massage followed by another 15 minutes for the cupping cost 60 yuan altogether.

As mentioned before, they also still do foot massage.

Four stars thanks to friendliness and good value.


Still, after so many years, one of the best bars in town. Drinks are extremely reasonably prices compared to similar bars in Kunming, the place is spacious and well laid out and easily one of the best stages for live performances in Kunming.

Had dinner there a few days ago and as always very impressed with the Chinese food.

If the mix drinks would be a bit stronger and ventilation better the venue would easily get 5 stars.

A legend indeed.
