I was very annoyed too. They must have known about the route change for ages, but for some reason chose to keep it secret. At best, silly. At worst, contemptuous.

When I worked for a year at Mengzi Teacher's College in 1996 we used to go into town by horse and cart. Returning a decade later it was taxis only and my old College had been swallowed up by the huge HongHe University. Such is progress in Chinese.

The best part of a visit to the Golden Temple is the alpine slide which can drag you half way UP the hill and later let you zig-zag DOWN at the end of your visit, Buy the ticket for this at the same time as buy your entrance ticket or you pay extra for it later..

I've previously railed against this place's terrible customer service (despite having the best range of western food in Kunming). But things are definitely improving. You no longer have to show a card on arrival (a QR code will do as you check out), your bags are not taken off you in order to get in, there are trolley-cars for kids to ride in and a lot of the food items that had gone missing over recent months seem to have been restocked.

The museum has expanded and now also has a nice section on China's High Speed Train System, including a mock-up of the inside of a HS train.

Took my son to the waterfall today. Nice grounds, well kept. There's a children's activity park towards the far end of the lake. As an alternative to the previously explained route, you can leave 司家营 station at Exit A and take a three-wheeled "taxi" to the Park for 10RMB. The Park itself is free and has a nice marked running track for those so inclined.

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.
