Forums > Living in Kunming > New Dianchi Exhibition Center Access Ways

You would be surprised at how big pavilions need to be.
Example. The National Exhibition Centre in the UK (UKs biggest) had to build a larger hall in the late 90s to continue hosting the world textile fair. This was because the existing halls could not fit in the largest machines. The world textile fair moved to Germany in about 2000 as there was no exhibition centre big enough in UK to hold all of the exhibitors.
If you want to hold international exhibitions, it makes sense to have out of town sites. With their own infrastructure, and close to the highway and rail networks. Because the impact on the local infrastructure is huge, and most of the people who attend international trade shows are not locals. Don't get confused with Kunming's trade fairs, these are more like a bazaar than a trade show.

I thought it was to have a bank account in another country. Which is why government officials with family residing overseas are being monitored and, subject to new rules put in place last year, cannot get promoted.

Forums > Food & Drink > Popping Corn

You can use regular dried corn kernels. You get a bigger proprtion that don't pop but the corn is only a fraction of the price. Available at most markets and food stores.

If there is a car accident you cannot leave the scene unless all issues are agreed and resolved. Usually one person makes a small compensatory payment to the other. I have seen people argue for 2 hours over who or what is at fault or the damage. In Kunming they want 200rmb for nothing. The amount varies across the country. In Zhengzhou it was 50.
In town the cops usually turn up in a few minutes and resolve it. Anything significant and calling the police is the usual action.
Cars are regulated, personal stuff is not.

Some of this behaviour is due to a lack of 'mindfulness'. If people had to leave a security deposit at the Entrance/Exit Bureau, that they would lose if they are reported for bad behaviour, then they would be more mindful.

Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.

In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.

Quirky little store with all sorts of odditites in stock, which is a big plus for me. I see stuff I had forgotten I even liked.
A bit dearer than some other places, but any small independant trader will cost more than the nationals, even back home.
On the up side it will save you driving around the city, and that will save you money.
No shop is perfect, but this one is very good. A bit like those slightly odd little delis/specialty shops back in Blighty.

Mae culpa

I was getting mixed up with the other international clinic that was open on XiYuan Lu, but the block is now under re-development.

I blame the confusion on pre-senile dementia, and the resurection of a 3 year old thread.

Lots of nice big brand performance bikes but not good for those of us on a budget.
