Forums > Living in Kunming > Living in Chenggong

It's quite interresting to see this area develope. I'm presently living on the shores of fu xian lake and Chengong is in my sights for the future...
They are presently digging a tunnel wich will replace the bumpy, potholed, broken up pavement, dusty, dirty, noisy, ugly, extremly dangerous road between Chenggong and Fu xian lake..
I never use that road, i go through yang zhong hai.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Just how rainy/cloudy is Lijiang?

Lijiang is up on a plateau, 2600m above sea level which is why it's quite cool, and yes cold in winter without heated houses...
June to September is rain season which most times the first part of the day is nice then it's showers late in the day or night, then you can have a bad spell which we are now having this week with constant cloud and sometimes steady rain.We have a tropical storm heading our way this week.
Lijiang is also downwind from a huge mountain range which produces the clouds and rain showers, therefore if are traveling in the area on a day trip and leave the plateau you can have great weather while lijiang has a shower.

Forums > Food & Drink > Vanilla extract

I bought a little bottle once at carefour at the imports section. Its not something too common.
You're better off to get the real vanilla whole bean, saw some at Paul's.

R/C Aircrafts, aka "drones" is big business in china but i doubt if any foreigner can get aproval from gov to opperate them since the heightened security measures.

Although if any one out there is interrested in drones for commercial use i'm available as a highly experienced and a long time pilot in R/C aircrafts...

What's his net/clear income after the company's cut, gasoline, insurance, licence and registration and maintenance? Then calculate amortization of the vehicle's cost over the years .
I assume they make 50 to 75 a day..



Crumbly cheese yes but the cheese seems to be low in fat/oils.
Tastes great.
It seems the cheese is small/medium artisan maker with batches that vary.

Expiry dates on cheese is not a big issue...it can only get better...

Great local shop.


We've had John bring a few of our clients when we could not.

When the cat is away the mice play.

I've been there (at the old location) with Rocko present and it was exellent, although without the owner present it was very disapointing..


Went the other night, it was very late therefore I cant coment on the food but it did smell very good..
Cozy atmosphere and very friendly host.
Will return again now that it's found!
