Forums > Travel Yunnan > Shangri-la Old Town - Burnt Down
This morning our office, along with most of the Old Town burnt down. Supposedly the fire began at 1:30am. Wasn't quite under control at 1pm this afternoon. Saw fire engines from Lijiang Yulong - guess we didn't have enough here. Might hold off on tourism up here till springtime atleast.
Forums > Food & Drink > Tibetan food in Kunming?
Would like to add my personal recommendation to Makye Ame (top of the list).
The food is excellent (though not cheap). The interior is beautiful and in the evening they provide a superb costumed performance with singing!
Best to go with a group of friends, it will be much more enjoyable.
Watch out for the Yak! ;-)

No audio and didn't take time to read any comments on the video, but...
Pretty sure he was just upset because he learned he was flying on China Eastern. Just saying..... :-)

Forums > Living in Kunming > Changchongshan 长虫山 Closed till 1st June 2013
Left this morning to go hiking on my favorite local mountain - Changchongshan.
Halfway up I was informed that everything is extremely dry and they're afraid of forest fires so they are prohibiting anyone from going up until the 1st of June.
Forums > Living in Kunming > mountain bike rental in KM?
Where can I rent a halfway-decent (or maybe even good) mountain bike for the few weeks I'm in Kunming? Years ago Xiong Brothers used to rent some but I don't know if they still do...
I'll be arriving in KM on 8th February just before the New Year and would like to rent for about a month.
Used to live in KM but have been away for awhile, a bit out of touch. I am on a bit of a budget.
