Forums > Living in Kunming > Boxing in Kunming?

Zhongwei is actually called Zovi in English... there's a contact address at the end of this interview: www.gokunming.com/en/blog/item/20/pugilism_for_the_people

If that doesn't work, just head down to the World Expo Garden Hotel: www.gokunming.com/en/listings/item/exp_71/

Look for the tennis courts by the parking lot on the south side of the hotel, the gym is just behind the tennis courts. Everytime I go there I meet nice kids in their early 20s that ask if I'm interested in boxing, so I'm guessing that it should be easy to set up lessons or sparring sessions if you want.

Local media also has links to FB and even Twitter, check out the links at the top of en.kunming.cn/

Sites can get blocked, but like Wikipedia, the NYT, BBC, etc, they can also be unblocked. The fact that nominally state-run media has FB and Twitter accounts suggests a disconnect that may one day be rectified.

French Cafe and Slice of Heaven are both good places to check. I have had some ridiculously rich and rummy chocolate cake at Sandra's. I believe As You Like does lemon cake and carrot cake. Pretty sure The Box, Salvador's, Mazagran and even the Camel Bar's new restaurant should also be able to sort you out.

I'm not sure how far in advance you need to order with any of these places... it might be worth looking into sooner rather than later.


No results found.




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
