I don't understand where this story is coming from. The building plans for the castle have been cancelled because they didn't get approval to build it. Anyway the place is still a swamp and even with approval it would take years to build. So don't hold your breath.
Forums > Living in Kunming > coming to Kunming next week, need locating a bike motor shop
All business related to motorbikes is concentrated at a compound at Jinma road (金马路) just east of the second ring road. If you dont find it there you will not find it anywhere in Kunming.
New motorbikes are no longer registered in Kunming and this has killed off the motorbike trade. Only bikes that already have a registration in Kunming, thus second hand, are sold. This mainly happens at Qianxing road (前兴路)
