Forums > Living in Kunming > VPN:s still working?

all the other VPNs I try to download either don't appear in bing searches or are blocked when you click on the link, so still stuck with useless Nord

Nord HK146 connected earlier this evening but was too slow to load anything much.
Nord really has been useless the last couple of weeks. Pity, cos it worked quite well before that, at least on laptop.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Hospital recommendations for giving birth

Hospitals in KM aren't good. If you can give birth in HK or Thailand, that will probably be better. Angel looks fancy, but as viyida said, it's the same doctors as the other hospitals with the same

backwards attitudes to childbirth and pain relief.

Forums > Food & Drink > Bars near Yunnan University

depends what you call near. Walking distance, maybe not, but there several bars scattered around ChengGong. Try Mojar it's got several fridges full of imported beer, super cheap happy hour (8pm onwards) and mexican/western food.

Not a twitcher myself but I've seen/heard some interesting birds in Ma Liao He Park 马料河公园, a usually quiet(ish) park following a slow flowing river with lots of reeds and ponds. There is a dam with a lake behind it at one end too.

China is the only country in the world where all pavements ('sidewalks' for the Americans) have those annoying textured paths for blind people to follow. In 5 years in China, I have never seen a blind person using them. When you add in the trees every 5 metres, the high kerbs, and the public bikes parked everywhere, it's sometimes quite difficult to walk, especially with a pushchair. But these are mere nitpicks compared with the tragic destruction of the beautiful old style neighborhoods all around China. There are hardly any left.

a very pleasant park with a tall pagoda you can climb and take photos of the city if you wish. Roses in summer, blossom in spring, nice lawn to sit on, bbq areas.

Recently the food seems to be better. Decent steak at a decent price, decent pizza, some decent wine, and the music is more suitable these days (Rammenstein wasn't the right mood music for Cantina)!

Ordered a meat pizza, it took ages to come, and when it came, had NO MEAT on it. I didn't bother to complain as I thought if I had to wait that long again I might die of hunger.
