Forums > Living in Kunming > Trivia/Pub Quiz is back at Muyu

This is a friendly reminder that tomorrow, Thursday Oct. 10th we will continue pub quiz night at Muyu! 5 person teams or less. Seating is limited and two weeks ago it was full, so we recommend participants arrive earlier than 8pm.

Special prize from us to the group with the best team name. Good luck!

FYI, we have called the Yunnan gov't visa bureau and they still state they require criminal background checks until they are informed otherwise by central. I'm going through my residence permit renewal process shortly. It may be smart to just have one done regardless.

Li Ping fundraiser

Thank you Colin for the time you took to write this, as well as everything else you have invested and done for Li Ping. Our heartfelt condolences to Li Ping's family and friends. I am sure that the fund in Li Ping's name will help save lives, and we are grateful for that. All the best.

There aren't too many places for late night partying that can be called 'the last stop', but this is it. Atmosphere is almost always lively, but for me, the bar, the staff and the drinks are well done. I don't consider myself a fan of the music genre mostly, but I'm a fan of the people, the staff and the menu. Have had one too many good nights at Turtle Club.


Quaint courtyard restaurant, more styled as a fusion of a Chinese home and a hacienda. Entertains an outdoor courtyard table space with simple furnishings. Food is a delicious mix of your typical Yunnan fare and is very reasonably priced. As is most often, the service level leaves something to be desired.


Baisha itself is less of a overwhelming tourist experience already, though visiting the Dabaoji is a must when walking through the quaint old town. The museum and buildings are kept well but are not yet kitschy. Worth the entrance fee just to see unspoiled history.


A modern take on old Lijiang architecture that doesn't stand out on its own, but makes up for a lack of uniqueness by quiet and pleasant surroundings and well-adorned comforts. The quality of service and amenities are fairly high, as you would expect from a Grand Hyatt. Similar value to the Pullman but just below Banyan Tree's experience.


After opening in 2011, this small Italian restaurant has taken many steps backwards. Service is now slow, and the food took an hour to arrive and was under cooked. The space is somewhat cozy and boutique like, but given the prices, there just isn't enough value to recommend visiting. Our latest experience was finished off by the son of the owner deciding to drop his pants and 'water' the plant in the middle of the room.
