Slice of Heaven will be open, but from 9am -9pm and will resume full hours after our staff have their well deserved break. Don't forget that we will have a free entry pot luck (bring your own food and drink to share) to 1am on Chinese New Year's Eve. No staff, so you get to practice being a 服务员

When is the break?

I am American but am working in Chongqing.
I have a few days off and will be spending Feb 20th-22nd in Kunming.
What should I see, what should I do?
Outdoors, hiking, art, coffee are my interests.
My Chinese is limited.


You can start by wandering around this website. There are tons of listings, stories and forum posts about things to do. The holiday will be long over then, so you don't need to worry about the closings listing above

Is there a place I can watch Super Bowl?

Western Hills, Bamboo Temple.

Super Bowl will be streamed live by all major web TV channels in China. Check www.sinoepg.net for details.

Contrary to this article, couple of days ago Metro had posts saying that they will be closed in Sunday 7th and Monday 8th.
