Around Kunming: 2019 Spring Festival business schedules

By in Features

As the Year of the Dog yields to the Year of the Pig, 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 Spring 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 Pig!

Vegetable, fruit and meat markets around the city do not necessarily close, although some do. Stocks dwindle significantly during the run-up to Spring Festival, so shop early. Delivery companies such as Dianping and Meituan will also have limited services. We also contacted water delivery companies Shilin Tianwaitian (石林天外天), Yunnan Shanquan (云南山泉) and Zhenming (珍茗). All three will be closed February 4-7 and unable to deliver, so stock up! Happy New Year everyone!
