Forums > Living in Kunming > Buying SIM card

I had to get a replacement Sim card today as my old iPhone used a micro size and the new iPhone uses a nano size. An Apple shop tried to simply cut it to size, but it failed to work. The big China Mobile store at XiaoXiMen swapped the old sim for a new one without fuss - just needed a passport - and for free. They take photos of your passport, visa, face etc but it was a painless procedure.

For anyone in a similar situation, do make sure you backup your data to the iCloud before you try the cut/swap. I didn't and I have a lot of phone numbers to manually re-enter!

Indeed. The thoughtlessness of smokers in China is bewildering at times. One the other hand, I've never had anyone refuse when I've politely asked them to move elsewhere. I think they just don't think.

Went to Chunyuan Nat for the first time today. Not as clean as I'd hoped, but still costs 25RMB, four years after this article as written, and not too busy. My 4-year old particularly loved the baby pool. Friendly staff and pleasant fellow swimmers. Worth a visit.

This is a great show which, although pricey (about 100RMB depending on seat, kids under 1metre for free) is pretty good value for a 1.5 hour show. Few animals (horses, dogs and a couple of camels only) and lots of impressive human feats, with an international flavour. I was pleasantly surprised and my son loved it.

Clean pool with nice showers, but small (25-30m?) and deep (1.2-1.5m) so not great for tiny kids. Biggest disappointment is the hefty price - 50RMB for adults and 30RMB for kids (before any discounts). Easy to find, as name is in English outside (though it looks like a shop front).

Not very clean, but friendly staff, two pools (adult and child) and only 25RMB. Worth a visit.

For those who remember the zoo as it was 4-5 years ago, there are definitely some improvements. The lion, tiger and elephant enclosures are much better than the old concrete cages. The various deer have more space too. The "monkey mountain" and wildfowl pond are actually quite nice. Sure, if you hate the idea of zoos then obviously avoid this one. But otherwise ...well, I've seen a lot worse in China.

Hole-in-the-wall XiaoLongBaoZi (dumplings) joints are all very well for grabbing a snack, but if you want to see and taste how good they can really be, I highly recommend this restaurant. Sure, you pay a bit more but the service is attentive, you see the dumplings being made and they taste fantastic. I ordered a tray of 8. then another 8 and then yet another! Well worth the visit.
