Forums > Living in Kunming > New e-bike rules 2019

on the the 50kg thing; nearly all e-bikes are over 50kg (most closer to 100kg), apart from the little pedal bikes with little electric motors. Not every man woman and child with an e-bike is going to take the motorbike licence with all the time and hassle it requires.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Suggestions for Lake visit, S. Chenggong area

There are many wetland parks on or near the eastern shore, and I've been to several of them. Lao Yu He is probably the biggest one, with proper restaurants options. It's also the most unique, as a lot of it is semi-flooded pine forest. The part on the lake shore has a little beach and wooden piers with great views of the lake and the mountains on the other side. At this time of year there are also gulls. Depending on where you live, other parks may be closer, but the Lao Yu He park is only about a 10minute drive from the end of the subway.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Anyone here gotten a Chinese Green Card?

Geezer's bus card story indicates that even if the laws themselves aren't racist, the people carrying out the procedures are (perhaps subconsciously) racist, and need a nudge to do things fairly and give people access to the things they are entitled to by law.

Liumingke makes an important point. You were born in Kunming and your parents are in Kunming. Therefore you will be considered 昆明人 and get paid less than real foreigners do. That being said, if your Chinese and English are both excellent and you can accept the lower standards that come with a developing country, I think you will be comfortable and happy here.

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.

There must be consequences to their refusal to manage their business responsibly and pay out. In days gone by they would have been sent to poor rural areas for 're-education'.

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.
