Forums > Living in Kunming > Laundromat near 1-2-1 and Wenhua Xiang?

I'm looking for someone who will do conventional cleaning of laundry—not dry-cleaning. (This morning I found one of the dry cleaners on Fengzhu St., and she offered to conventionally wash my clothes at the dry-cleaning rate of Y8 per item. I'm not that desperate yet.) I've never seen a self-serve laundromat in thirteen years in China. But I have seen shops where they'll take your clothes and wash, dry and fold them in a day or to for Y1 or Y2 per piece, mainly in places with lots of tourists.

The place I am staying at does not have laundry service, and the laundromat by Paul's, listed in previous Go Kunming threads, has closed. Does anyone know where I can get my laundry done in this area?

Please respond fast; I only have one day's worth of clothes left!

Thanks! So I should just be able to get a prepaid SIM card at the big China Mobile store on 建设路/东风路? (presuming they still take passports; they did when I was last around in 2011)

Kevin wasn't joking when he said that Nizu might be incorporated into Pudacuo National Park. It is well within the boundaries of the park's long-term plan, which includes hiking trails and a road from Shudu Lake to bring tourist loads on the order of what's already happening in Pudacuo.

Tthat might change depending on how the local government gauges the growing market for 自驾旅游 independent tourists. But it's likely that Nizu will be incorporated, at which point there will be less visible trash, because Nizu residents will be employed by the park to pick it up, as in other Pudacuo communities. Of course, there would be other costs, environmental and otherwise.

We went to Changchongshan today (14 Dec 2014), and we were turned back at the upper gate. Guards showed us signs that indicating that for the fire prevention period, from 1 December 2014 through 15 June 2015. They would only let in people who were sweeping family graves further up the mountain.
