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)

Camping Chinese:
All new equipment with all unnecessary gadgets.
Wear facemasks and fingerless gloves.
Spend two hours to put up their tent.

Place their tents all on top of each other.
Ones tent stands they change in to either: slippers with big flowers on them, fluffy animal slippers or high-heels.
Use enormous inflatable mattresses.
Spend an other two hours to take their tent down again.
Leave camping ground as disaster zone.

WayoftheSun. False info? I am just raising some points how the present situation has come to this. Don't blame me but the unscrupulous breeders and owners that keep dogs for the wrong reasons and on top of that don't know how to deal with them.

I have no problem understanding that your shepherd is a proper dog and you know how to deal with but the situation I see around me here is China is different. Lots of gangster breeders and owners that don't know even the basics.

A muzzle is not the solution. Just two recent cases in England and New Zealand where kids were mauled by their family dogs in their own homes.

I largely agree with you that it is not the dog but the owner that is the problem. But you have to realize that there is a correlation between them, like people that buy a Lamborghini are more likely to be involved in a high speed accident than people who buy a QQ.
The problem is that people that, let say, buy a pit bull terrier, usually are not doing so to prove that these are nice family dogs but do so for the reasons why these dogs are forbidden now.

An other point is that certain breeds which where OK before, like for example the various shepherd breeds, for whom I have as well have good experiences, I was allowed to walk a friend's shepherd when only 4 years old, have changed.
Many of these dogs are not any longer what they used to be. This because of unscrupulous breeding for commercial reasons. The nice and friendly shepherd I walked as a 4 year old is not the same as the shepherd my neighbor bought as a status symbol to go with his Cayenne.
For this reason I support banning breeds. Not because of the dogs but because of the owners.

Kidnapping of a dog in our compound occurred yesterday. The dog was lured outside with a ham sausage and then taken off the compound. Security camera's showed all the action even of the kidnapping lady buying the ham sausage in the convenience store next to the compound.
The dog involved was an Akita, which is one of the forbidden dog breeds in Kunming. Apparently there still is a market for these dogs.

When I read the header I thought that is fast because last night the just visited me. Turned out the article is about the previous census ;-)
