Forums > Living in Kunming > Water outages warning

This notice was posted on the Kunming Water Authority's official WeChat account. Pardon the quick and dirty translation job:

"Water outages caused by pipe replacements will affect neighborhoods along Xuefu Lu (from Jiaochang Zhong Lu to Huangtupo), the Hongshan area, Jinding area, along Dianmian Dadao, along Puji Lu, the Gaoxin area and the northwest part of Kunming. Water outages may be complete in some areas, while others will see a lowering of pressure."

The scheduled stoppage time is Nov 28 at 10pm until Nov 30 at midnight.

I hope some of the more avid bird-watchers (of which I'm not) make some comments here. The best things I've seen so far are a Lady Amherst's pheasant on Dali's Cangshan, and a what looked like a family of Gaur outside of Tengchong. Not sure what they were though.

Congratulations to Ozzie's, the Kunming Rotary and everyone who turned out for a great evening! The fundraiser pulled in more than 22,000 yuan — enough to buy diapers for the next 12 months. Great work Kunming!

These places are home to "thousands of immigrants from the countryside". Many of these families have extreme difficulty finding ways to register their kids to attend schools, much less pay for tuition. So no, many of them don't go to class.

As for the sandwiches, that was an introductory activity, what teachers call a 'warmer', to gain trust, establish comfort and make sure the kids come back the next time.

Kunming, can't thank you enough! The fundraiser brought in more than 10,000 yuan. Thanks to the bands, Matu and Juliette, Jiajia, Kris, Ian and David, as well as everyone who came out and made this a fantastic afternoon and evening. Well done everyone!



Passable no-frills Dongbei food including lots of dumplings, tofu, disanxian and other standards. Fair prices too.


A pleasant surprise hiding inconspicuously inside the Second Ring Road. Go for the temple, stay for the lovely forested park and its ample solitude.


Had the buffet here recently. A bit expensive but discounts are available for groups. Seafood, including crab, lobster and sushi were all fantastic. European and Chinese dishes were great as well. Beer was included with dinner. Overall, excellent service and food.


Excellent dumplings for omnivores, vegetarians and carnivores. This is a hole in the wall joint with no frills, but the owners are friendly and the dumplings are just right. Five stars if they get higher quality vinegar.
