The platform is there and ready to use - yes. But no sight of the hot air balloon... as one could probably discover some secret army base from up there after all. The balloon would be attached by a rope to the ground anyway . The Tengchong volcanoes are, like many other of the well advertised Chinese Tourist attractions, a big disappointment.
Take your wife and have her talk nicely to the police man. Don't ask questions...just let them gossip. Helped in our case. If it does not help - just ignore them and don't show up again. They will eventually get bored. This will in no way affect your visa.
I agree with JJ and Janice: The same goes with Swiss Francs. You can change Swiss Francs worth up to 50'000 USD per year and passport at every BOC bank, also in Dali. Lummerlaoshi is not correct. You can exchange about 5000 USD per day/cash. But that is cash money. If you have the money in your account you can change up to USD 50000.

I love that place! Their food selection is getting better and better. Today they had a great selection of different cheeses. Ok, I could not buy them all but the one I did buy was really delicious. There is also a choice of cold cuts, ham, bacon and imported steaks....Hope they can get more of these Christmas cookies! 5 Stars!
What happened to that place? Went there quite regularly in the past for their Amber Beer and a Burger. Went there last week again. The Amber they did not have available and the burger was – lets put it nice – disgusting! I ordered a Cheeseburger. After 30 Minutes I reminded the "waiter" about my "missing" Cheeseburger. Another 15 Minutes later I got a Burger with no Cheese but with cold fries and a huge leaf of lettuce almost the size of the plate. (Seems to me that the oversized leaf of lettuce was to camouflage the fact that there was no cheese available). The Burger went back to the kitchen. After one minute (!) I got the same burger with the same cold fries......but they added a scoop of deep-frozen kind of thing they call cheese on top......sorry guys- but never again. Not even for your life music or the Amber.
I love that place. But what is preventing them to have that delicius bread ready every day at about the same time? Seems to be different every day. Went there 4 times in a row and came back empty handed everytime.....(went to French Cafe instead). Yesterday I asked the girl WHEN the bread will be ready and she said she didn't now. There is a thing called A TELEPHONE where one could actually call the boss and ask..... I'll try one last time though.
I agree entirely with prd34. I stayed there for one night only, and that was enough. The rooms are very damp and cold. Furthermore the quality of food they serve can be improved. Really nothing special. The staff was helpful and friendly but we could not get a smile off the owner's face.
