Sorry, I don't.

Your best bet is probably to just pick something that fits your budget constraints from a travel reservation website such as e-long or c-trip and take a taxi to the hotel when you arrive. They will have taxis at the airport even though it's late at night.

Alternatively, if you are traveling light and speak Chinese, just wing it and find something after arrival.

The international flight terminal and the domestic flight terminal in Kunming's airport are in the same building and very close to each other. It would not be difficult to retrieve your luggage and re-check it, but that really should not be necessary. If you don't plan to spend time in Kunming, why not just check it through to your final destination (Chongqing) when you board your Vientiane flight? That would be the simplest thing to do.

>>"I'm returning to Kunming next Thursday. I'm staying at a hotel in Panlong, near the intersection of Renmin Lu and Dongfeng Dong Lu."

Those two streets don't intersect. But the areas near where those two streets cross Baita Lu 白塔路 and Huancheng Donglu 环城东路 are OK.

Question about the red arm bands.

In the last couple weeks I've seen lots of local citizens wearing red arm bands that have something to do with the Expo. I've been told that they are helping keep the streets near where they work clean so as to make a good impression on visiting officials.

Has anyone seen these red arm bands close up and actually been able to read the words? Just curious.

@Liliping — good tip about the baking soda. Do you know how to say it or write it in Chinese? My dictionary says 小苏打, but I'm not sure if that is local usage. I'd like to buy some.

花鸟市场 — Bird and Flower Market. Off 东风中路 Dongfeng Middle Street, north side, near 五一路 Five One Street. Many other places as well.

Posting photos of an event after the fact is nice, but Go Kunming could provide a truly useful service by listing events like this in advance so those of us who live here could know to attend.



The CNAC exhibit, which is on display now, February 2009, is extremely intersting and well done. Worth a trip. The museum charges no admission and the Number 1 Kunming bus goes there.
