Around Kunming: Spring Festival business schedules

By in Features on

As the Year of the Rooster yields to the Year of the Dog, many cafés, restaurants, bars, grocery stores and shops around Kunming will close or otherwise alter their hours. To help keep up, we've contacted local businesses and compiled their holiday schedules before, during and sometimes after the official February 15-25 festival schedule. Some have already taken time off!

Any businesses not listed below should feel free to post their schedules in the comment section at the bottom of the article. Those listed who may further alter hours can get in touch via the GoKunming contact form. Here at the website, we too will take a bit of a hiatus, publishing only sporadically during the holiday. The GoKunming team would like to wish all of our users a happy and healthy Year of the Dog!

Thank you, never going to take these for granted. Every cny before GoK began this series, it was go try your luck, see if it's opened yet!

Thanks Patrick, but a small amendment. Slice of Heaven will be open over the holiday. but our hours will be reduced. Open 9.30 am, kitchen closed 9.30, closed 10.00 pm. We'll go back to normal hours as staff return from their holidays.

Handy, quick check just now before I went to eat :o)

Hey all, sorry Salvador's will need to amend our hours tomorrow. We will close at 5pm on the 15th. Sorry for any inconvenience. We will be back to opening 10:30am and closing 10:30pm the next day. Happy New Year everyone

Yet another reason this is such a good website. Many thanks, GoKunming.

Salvador's Loft will need two extra days before opening. We will be back on Monday. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Caleb Cafe (formerly Yunjoy & El Amor) reopens Friday 23d Feb, noonish.
