Forums > Travel Yunnan > Is there a scheduled bus service from Gongshan to Deqin?

Anyone know if this road has been finished. On Amap it seems to still be closed but thought I'd ask just in case. Also if possible I'd rather trek a few days from Deqin over to Bingzhongluo rather than take the huge detour round to Baoshan and then Liuku and then have to go back that way as well.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Residence permit.


Are there any catches when it comes to getting a Z visa from another city but living in Kunming. Most of my work would be online so it makes little difference as to which city i am living in. I prefer kunming but i have a feeling there is a rule against doing this. Surely the residence permit must be in the same location as the employer? Or that not important?

E.g i have a work visa from Guangzhou. But i want to work and live in Kunming. Where should the residence permit be registered and id it allowed?

Forums > Living in Kunming > 2 year visa and renting an apartment

@janjal the 2 year visas offered to UK residents are business or tourist. In the past I had a work visa and therefore a residency permit so there was never an issue registering with thr PSB (which I am always called out on if I don't do it voluntarily, contrary to what other people have experienced)

I know the landlord doesn't care as they've got their money but does the PSB?. I should have made that clearer in the OP. Many apologies

I agree that the government manages water resources badly. But there is a complete lack of awareness from most people (not just in China) that water is a resource that has to be processed and is valuable. I have noticed people taking half an hour+ showers, washing their cars and using way too much water for washing the dishes. You can be certain that the richer families in the richers areas proportionaely use far much water than the older Xiaoqus.

Plus, imagine the loss of face cruising in a dusty BMW..



Went with my girlffriend the other thinking that the pho wouldn't be so authentic. We were both surprised that it really was like Vietnamese pho and with generous amount of beef. Large bowl 25kuai. Another plus is that the place has a really great designand feel to it.
