Forums > Travel Yunnan > Tourist Visa's killing me softly

My bad. I saw tourist visa and didn't register the duly authorised part.

They are normally only necessary if you are travelling on a package tour. If you contact some HK travel agents they might be able to arrange for you (possibly IT travel agents too).

Alternatively, you could arrange a regular invitation letter and get all the other docs together to go and apply again. If you've spent some time in China you will know that just because they said one thing when you talked to them last, it doesn't mean that if you go to visa office again another day or talk to a different person that they will all have the same requirements.

You could also ask a travel agent to lodge the visa for you and see if that changes things around.

While I am on the topic of calendars, a schedule of minority festivals around the province would be awesome too.

All looks good.. Have always thought that the calendar would be well served by an "add this event" or "subscribe" button that would allow users to add events to their personal calendars with a click or subscribe to events at their favourite venues.

Awesome article. Thanks Matthew and GoKunming for getting this out early so that people can plan to get down to experience this.

Has GoKunming ever looked at creating a festivals Wiki page or something with a list of all these random things that happen around the province. It seems impossible to stay informed of these until it is too late. Might be easier to accomplish it it was community driven.

Also, those maps are fantastic. What program was used to make them??

Motor boats aren't allowed on the lake, with the exception of safety craft operated by the local government. All the fishing vessels you see are powered the old fashioned way.

As for the road, at the moment you can take the Kunyu highway about half the way and then have to turn off onto smaller roads. Wouldn't be so difficult driving if their weren't so many trucks on the road which struggle with the hills and some of the bumpier sections. Once you get to the lake however, it is pretty smooth driving, and a really easy connection from Yuxi City (still involves a few painful sections though). Normally takes about 45 mins to reach the lake from downtown Kunming.

Awesome little bakery. Lots of interesting food. For every Australian out there, the meat pies smelled great, though they weren't ready for eating when I went in. Will definitely be back for those soon.
