That's the one. Kinda miss the lobster though.. always made it easier to spot the building from a distance.

Hedgepig, if you really want good DimSum, the best place in town is 新人人海鲜大酒楼. They did a big renovation earlier in the year and the quality of the food seems to have improved a lot after they reopened. It is pretty easy to find south of the intersection of DianChi Rd and HuanCheng Rd.

深圳酒楼 has also made big strides in improving it's quality, but they don't have as big a range of menu items and I personally find the standard of the items they have to be a little lower. For those living in the North or around Green Lake, it can sometimes be a lot more convenient to get to though.

If you have been hanging out for a good DimSum for three years though, forget 深圳酒楼 and head straight for 新人人.

The only two decent DimSum places I have come across in Kunming are 新人人海鲜大酒楼 in the South and 深圳酒楼 near the old Kunming Zoo. Most other places seem to let themselves down with poor variety and poor quality seafood.

Not sure on buses, but they are both easy to find on Google maps. I would be interested in trying any other places that people have found with authentic GuangDong DimSum.

From what I have heard, Koreans certainly have the largest population with several thousand. Australians number in the low hundreds. The numbers from many Western countries are higher than is obvious because there are a lot of returned Chinese who have changed their citizenship.

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.
