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.

Congratulations to Karen Song, the first to reply that Geoffrey Chaucer was the medieval poet credited with linking St Valentine's Day with romance.

Stay on the lookout for more giveaways on GoKunming in the near future!

I can't help but agree with EK Kadiddlehopper. An efficient regional rail network would be good for many of the people in China/SE Asia/South Asia who have yet to see the benefits of their respective countries' recent opening up.

Oddly, this train may be one of Kunming's better places for a picnic. Inspired by Quester, I rode it again this afternoon with a friend, who brought a nice wine and some freshly baked bread. We hung out on the sunny side of the train with the windows open and shot the breeze as the empty Chinese New Year version of Kunming rolled by... good fun.



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.


Tom and Jiajia have been baking up a storm lately. Thanks to them I have delicious sourdough bread to toast on the space heater in the office.

The Bircher muesli is probably the healthiest and most delicious breakfast around.

Pound for pound, one of the best little Western restaurants in China. 佳佳万岁
