IF YOU GET SENT TO HOSPITAL UPON ARRIVING IN KUNMING FROM ABROAD.... make sure you get all of the records from your hospital stay, espcially a stamped statement that you have been tested x times for coronaviurs and found negative and have been free of fever for x days and when you get to your qurantine hotel, you need to stop at the first checkpoint and show the paperwork to the authorities there and make sure they agree to get all of the fever-free days of your hosptial stay deducted in advance from your hotel stay. Once you pass this first checkpoint and go to the hotel check-in, you will be dealing mostly with hotel staff and it will be much more difficult to adjust the duration of your hotel quarantine.

^Yes, I have had four swab tests so far. They only told me the results of two, which were both negative. I'm assuming if either of the other two had come back positive, I would have heard about it.

@tiger I found tons of options at low prices just searching taobao for couscous. For example: 【COUSCOUS中东米中东小米意大利米维苏古斯古斯面食500G 5分钟速食m.tb.cn/h.VaOQm5V?sm=0993a3 ↑↓擊鏈ㄣ接再选择瀏覽嘂..咑閞ヽ;或椱ァ製这句话₳Ul101YzqykF₳后打开

"The following items are currently being accepted for recycling:

All I could find about alkaline batteries was a local news article which reported that the local authorities had said alkaline batteries are not actually very bad for the environment and people should just throw them in the trash :-(

Cantina is always a safe bet for top-notch food and great service. I think it has actually gotten better and better over the years, which is often not the case with restaurants. Most people who live in Kunming know Cantina. Perhaps not as many know how involved the owners, Libby and Diego, are in various social welfare and community service efforts. Highly recommended both for visitors and long-term residents!

I went there twice for group boxing classes. I left the third time when I was attempting to book into a grappling class. This was part of an attempted process on my part to try the different classes offered there and see if I wanted to purchase one of their various membership cards.

The boxing classes were fun, a great workout, and the coaches and fellow students were all nice. A good atmosphere. Certainly room for improvement, especially in terms of explaining the class structure and fundamental concepts of the sports to beginners...but overall good.

However, on front desk staff member erased the positive aspects of the gym through his unprofessional and rude conduct. I was treated like some sort of con-man for wanting to try out the different classes offered before committing to multi-thousand RMB membership card, despite my willingness to pay per class to try them out. I wasted my time riding over to the gym on a very cold day on my scooter and then being refused service unless I committed on the spot to buying a membership card in direct contradiction to the gym's own policies and written price table. Also wasted was my friend's time and money, as she was in a cab on the way over to the gym in order to join me for the group class at the time I was refused service. My exchange with the staff (in which I was not terribly satisfied, but remained calm and reasonable throughout) was topped off with a remark from the one particular staff member with xenophobic undertones.

As one may see from my other reviews on this site, I typically try not to say anything unless I have something nice to say. In this case, I feel I must make an exception: I don't think it's a business that deserves your effort or money.

One of the best western restaurants in Yunnan. Definitely worth visiting if you will be passing through Shangrila!

I've been taking boxing classes with Kasey, who is an excellent teacher. The studio is no-frills, but they have a wide range of yoga, self defense and other classes. And some of the teachers even donate the class fees to charity. Glad to have Spring City Yoga Collective as part of the community in Kunming.
