Forums > Living in Kunming > Teacher at university : scam ?

There is usually something in the contract that says whether you can take a part time job or not. Language schools certainly pay more but you would be working on weekends.

3200 seems very low. I would struggle on that monthly salary.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Extension on 90 Day Tourist Visa

I got an extension on a thirty day one here in KM. I'm not sure about a 90 day one. When I originally applied for the tourist visa they only offered 30 days, they said I couldn't have the 90 day one.


No results found.


Great article. Will definitely be heading out there sometime soon. Do you know if there are any volunteering opportunities out there working with the monkeys? This is something very dear to my heart and I would be very honoured to be able to help hands on.

Informative article, thanks. Two questions that I can't see answered here. If I want to travel from Kunming train station to North bus station, how much would it cost and how long would it take? Any ideas?



Animals better taken care of than Nanping bird and flower. Clean. If you are after a pedigree dog. Come here.


Good bangers and mash, though sausages a bit dry (overcooked?)
Always been a fan of O'Reillys burgers. The three locations don't disappoint!


Really impressed with this place. The only problem for me is the location, since I live downtown.
Very extensive menu and none of us (4 people) were disappointed with our orders. Decent sized portions, good flavour and nice outdoor seating area.
Will definitely go back and try other things on the menu!


I had only tried BK in Shanghai before (my hometown doesn't have one) and I thought it was awesome. Kunmings BK isn't as good and way more expensive. Fries were good but really small. A decent burger, but I prefer McD's.


Don't know what happened to this place.. New menu (of which they didnt have the first five things we tried to order).Prices have doubled.

Two stars for the Thai fried rice, mashed potatoes and outdoor seating area.
