Winners: Best of Kunming Awards 2017-2018

By in Features on

Voting has concluded and the results have been tallied for the Best of Kunming Awards 2017-2018. Just as with last year, participation was overwhelming, this time up more than 40 percent. Thank you to everyone who took the time to cast a ballot both on the website and via WeChat. Winners were recognized at the fifth annual Best of Kunming Awards Gala on Thursday, January 11, and it was a great night! We'll publish a complete write-up of the event soon.

For this year's results, we included the winners and runners up for website voting, both followed by the percentage of total votes received by each. Below those winners — in categories where it is applicable — are those businesses and places which won on WeChat. Some of the categories were extremely close this time around, with first, second and sometime third places separated by only a few ballots. And now, without further ado, the winners for the Best of Kunming Awards 2017-2018...
