Forums > Living in Kunming > Sending a suitcase to UK

Check with your airline. I have come from UK to China. I booked a flight with plus one suitcase excess baggage pre-paid (I think Finnair) from Manchester. With a through ticket (End to end incl transfers) I only paid one excess baggage fee. I think 2 years ago it was only GBP 50, if pre booked.
This avoids delays, loss, damage, and customs rigmarole, as the bag is accompanied by you.
Check with your airline as this is not really an issue. 1st class and often business class pax are allowed additional suitcases, as such the airports, customs, and airlines are all used to this procedure.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Contraception clinic?

Contraception is dealt with at the 'Women's Hospital'. You will see adverts for these at bus stops, and on TV. I think the main one is called the Maria Women's Hospital. www.maliya.cn/

If you google them they come up with a map as well.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Piano lessons

Con
I think we can assume that you are looking for a teacher in your neighbourhood. Travelling across the city if not needed would not be good for you.

If you are a beginner then do you need a high level tutor, or just any tutor?

Can you cope with a Chinese speaking tutor, or do you need an English speaker?
Are you looking for a teacher with experience teaching adults?

As has already been suggested, there are thousands of piano teachers. I would try finding a local music store and asking them as well.

Forums > Food & Drink > Sunday Brunch Locations?

I experience China everyday. Like many Chinese who live overseas, I also like my own food. If am perfectly happy for Chinese people to dim sum in the west, what is your problem with some of us wanting to eat a western style brunch?
P.S. It does sound like Matt
I shall now be sending Marcus to Coventry.

This is a bit of a toxic industry, especially in China. It needs regulating and enforcement. Glad to see this has happened.

As for 1rmb tours. They should be very easily to regulate out by targeting them. It is, I believe illegal to tie tourists to spending money. I have no sympathy for anyone in this case.

Where Mike4gair keeps his boats is a good location. There is easy parking, and I am pretty sure the pedal boats. It is on the north shore away from the crowded areas, but there are some places to eat not far from there.

You may also be able to arrange some sailing with Mike.

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.
