Forums > Living in Kunming > Making money

Indeed, to be a teacher is a good idea for most people but I don't think i'm cut out for it, and I'm not qualified (though i did teach statistics in SH a few years ago). I also understand that the requirements changed recently to block unqualified teachers, and rightly so.

I've just read a post about smuggling avocados across the vietnam border, not THATS an idea i like :)

Another one i like the sound of is hiring architects in china to draw designs and alterations to buildings in the west.

Im not good looking enough to be a gigolo.

I should have added, I also don't want to become a rentboy.

I would'nt agree that everyone is looking for ways to make good fast money. Short-term thinking is probably the reason so many of those I've met failed and continue to fail. Personally, I don't need the money but it would be nice to have an interesting and slightly profitable enterprise. In Europe I've met dozens of Chinese people who run successful sideline businesses and they have no problem being transparent, because they're genuinely adding value by providing a product or service in a convenient/cheap way, and have built relationships and ways-of-working which cannot be copy-pasted.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Do famous artists ever perform in KM?

I would like to go to some pop/rock/hiphop/etc music concerts with top artists, whether they be Chinese or international. In fact the type of music is not the most important - mostly I like the atmosphere of a big crowd of fans. Do I have to go to a bigger city? I've been in KM a while but all I ever see advertised is local bands. Are any of them any good?

Any suggestions or proven examples of how to make a half-decent income in KM without becoming an employee? Selling stuff to folks back home via the web is the most obvious, but I've met a lot who tried and failed - not sure why, really. Anyhow, all input welcome.

Forums > Living in Kunming > YNNU / YNU Accomodation standard

Hi - does anybody know what the accommodation standard is at the universities? I've only found one pic of the rooms on internet, on a site called sichina.org and it looks like a normal hotelroom.
I understand they charge 120 per day, and need to pay the whole semester up-front.

Who is going to manage to read the sign as the cab is passing by.

There are too few cabs and too few busses. Ban private cars from the city center.

Friendly staff and good service, food and prices are ok. No complaints but its nothing special either, and not worth a visit unless you live closeby.

Nice atmosphere and cosy but the western food is bad. I think they deep-fry the burgers. As a cafe - 4 stars (service is a little bit lacking at times), coffee and cakes etc are good. As a restaurant, 2 stars (western food is too bad, asian food is mamahuhu).

"All the Meat" only had about 3 slices of salami on it, so maybe i got the wrong order. Anyway, leaving that aside - soggy bread, ketchup as tomatosauce, and cheese was probably from a tube.
Potato wedges soggy as well.
I left half my meal, the only thing up to scratch was the coke and the service. Will not be back.

If the name of the shop is written in english then they should speak english, yes! A pokey shithole trying to give the impression of a quaint li'l ole bookshop. Pig-ignorant staff, never been greeted with a smile there, nor even greeted. If you must shop here, bring your own bag. 1 star earned for selection and the (for me) convenient location.
