The best part of a visit to the Golden Temple is the alpine slide which can drag you half way UP the hill and later let you zig-zag DOWN at the end of your visit, Buy the ticket for this at the same time as buy your entrance ticket or you pay extra for it later..

Hey all, I'm very sorry to have forgotten to include Valhalla Craft Beer's generous donation of a keg of their beer that will also be poured at the event tomorrow with all proceeds going to the fundraising effort. Thank you, Valhalla, and thank you for all the efforts and donations from all these great businesses in Kunming like Valhalla.

High speed rail from Dali to Ruili is in operation. A two-hour journey.
