I know there have been some other posts about moving things between cities with the rail service, so I hope I'm not asking for a repeat of information that is posted elsewhere.
Anyway, can anybody recommend a company in Shanghai that can help (inexpensively) with moving self-packed boxes from Shanghai to Kunming? The catch is that I will not be in Kunming to receive the boxes: I am trying to get them delivered for storage to the language school where I'll be studying next year. So I need a service that is professional/responsible enough to ensure that the language school is contacted (even if it requires more than one try) and my belongings are delivered to the school during business house.
(Of course, a company that will store my things for me for 2 months at a modest fee would also be acceptable)
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.
Stopped in today while out on a motorbike ride. Nice place to chill out away from the hustle and bustle of town. Can swim in the reservoir nearby (although technically prohibited, nobody seems to care). Great pizza. Good coffee. Reasonable price. As previous reviewer mentioned, if you're going there particularly, it might be worth calling and double checking they're open and arranging for food. Owners speak English.
A welcome addition to the Western choices in Kunming! Good bread, world-class pastry art, a small but solid food menu. Would suggest a little more flavor in the tomato pasta, and eggs benedict would be even better if on an English muffin instead of bread.
A nice day out. I missed the second exhibition. The third exhibition, currently ongoing, is contemporary photos of the Kunming-Haiphong railway, mostly the Chinese side. I thought it was quite good. It's not a huge space, but the 1903 commercial complex has some decent dining options (including the museum cafe itself which has some expensive but very good single origin coffees).
