Not sure if Natsymir means Kunming's four main urban districts or Kunming municipality when saying all the temples in Kunming, but Panlong Temple (盘龙寺) on the south end of Dianchi near Jinning is one of the largest and best-known temple compounds in the Dianchi Basin. I'm not an expert on it, but it seems to be one of the more important temples for Kunmingers - it is packed with locals who usually drive there from the city. Definitely worth including in your temple hunt, in my opinion.

Nice work Ben. I've wondered about this area every time I've taken the train from Kunming to Guangzhou. I always keep my eyes open around 5:30 or 6 to make sure to catch a few seconds of the remarkably tall waterfalls on the east side as they catch the late afternoon sun... some of my favorite scenery in southwest China. Will go there next time I'm passing through - thanks for scoping it out first!

Last saw them at the Speakeasy in 2008, one of the more memorable performances I saw there. I hear they're still a very good show.

Best one for me was in the old airport in the late 90s: "Warmly welcome foreign fiends"

Good Chinese vegetarian menu that's big enough to not become boring by the third visit, but what I've really been enjoying about the Camel's resto lately is how suited it is for work.

Big tables, free wifi, all the caffeine you need and a large food menu to take the edge off of my coffee shakes. It's usually sunny and not too crowded most afternoons. Belgian beers like LaChouffe or Leffe are excellent rewards for a productive session.

Went for the first time in yonks last night and played beer pong for the first time. Good fun, and a potentially interesting place for parties.

Four stars for a great restaurant with friendly staff.

I give Tusheng Shiguan a fifth star for its goal of promoting environmentally sound food production.

My favorite Tengchong-style restaurant in Kunming. Their ersi and erkuai are trucked over from Tengchong and are the real deal — Kunming ersi and erkuai do not compare.

The restaurant itself is a bit jumbled, but there are a couple of tables outside in the courtyard that are nice to sit at when the weather's pleasant.

Don't believe them when they say they don't have lufu.
