Voltaire: All images have been processed with Lightroom only, although the top image also has seen a mild treatment with PS's built-in HDR processer.
With good light and the help of techniques to 'increase' the dynamic range you can quite easily get very dramatic images of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.
LaoQingwa: I took the photos over three separate trips. Most of the pictures were shot in October while a few pictures that show a calmer Jinsha river were shot in March instead.
Perhaps worth adding to the site, if you think their cause is worthwhile. I'd be curious to know how different the languages are and how far removed they are physically.
The article has been updated with the dates for Tusheng Shiguan and Lost Garden Restaurant.
Thank you, chris, dtedheshi.
I go to Surmount. Cheap (I paid 1500 for 2 years, although the price may have gone up) and the Xiaoximen branch has lots of free weights. It's a bit crowded, but then they have several other branches around town, which can be found in the listings.
Getting a card you can use across all locations costs 300 yuan extra, I've heard.

@rejected_goods: As you can see BillDan's zero star review of Cacao still stands. We only delete reviews when we believe they are fake. The forum guidelines, however, are different.
Of course, zero star ratings should be reserved for those places one believes to the worst possible venues one could possibly imagine. Such reviews I imagine would include consideration of service level and quality of products and decoration, depending on what type of venue it is. Finally, as all things are relative, it would make sense to rate these different aspects based on the local contextual environment and not on one that most other site users are not familiar with.
Thank you for the helpful reference, zlif23.
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.
Great cafe on the walking street at Zhengyi Fang. Went there on a sunny day (plenty of days at the moment) and the place is bright, spacious, well designed and with an outside seating area.
Lovely place to have a break if you're in the area of the Bird and Flower Market.
Was here again last night and had a great meal as usually. Easily one of my favourite restaurants in town. Definite recommendations include any variation of their stir-fried rice-cake (饵块, erkuai) and tofu skin (腐竹, fuzhu) dishes.
Greatly appreciated as well are their efforts to serve clean, organic food.
