By in News on

This weekend will feature a diverse selection of events around Kunming, here's a quick rundown of things to do over the next three days:

Live hiphop: Rap Republic plays tonight at the Halfway House. The free show starts at 10 pm and will highlight new songs from the bilingual duo's new demo CD, which will be available at the show.

Mountain bike race: The UCC Cup Mountain Bike Offroad Race will take place this Saturday in Anning. Contact the Xiong Brothers Bike Shop at 5191520 for details.

Photo Exhibition: The Yunnan Provincial Museum at Dongfeng Xi Lu and Wuyi Lu will continue hosting a joint photo exhibition by Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand and CCTV anchor Rita Zhao through Sunday. The exhibition, "Two Journeys, One Destination" features the Princess' photos of China over the last 25 years and Zhao's photos of Thailand from the past two years.

Store opening: A Ling Crafts, possibly the smallest store in Kunming, will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday night at 8:30. The shop is located three doors north of Paul's Shop on Tianjundian Xiang, just off of Wenhua Xiang.
