Forums > Living in Kunming > Finding a Chinese girlfriend
I totally do not recommend a Chinese girlfriend. You can have them as friends, students or work partners but never girlfriends. I have stayed in this country enough time to be able to judge what I have seen. I just could mention "one example" and I hope it will never offend any one, I had three students who are married and all cheat on their husbands with several men.

More than easy. Get register for the new semester before the visa ends. They will accept early enrollment and they will handle your visa issue. If your visa is going to be over by the end of July it means you are under scholarship now and you have to apply for the self support program earlier so they can handle new documents for you.

To be honest I've studied in Yunnan university for long time, I've never been satisfied with any thing there.

Not a big distance from Luang Prabang to the capital. Take the early morning bus you will be arrived by evening.
