Sofitel has good views but the food is just good rather than superb in my experience. Never eaten at Intercontinental but it should be decent and it's a nice quiet part of town. Or if you have time for a 1-2 hour journey each way and overnight stay, the the Hilton Hotel at Fuxian Lake is beautiful and they have some pretty decent food considering it's quite remote location.

I can report that the stream quality is pretty good, except for 'ghosting' i.e. when the ball moves very quickly, it becomes slightly transparent, slightly unerving, but otherwise the streams have been smooth on all 5 or 6 games I checked out yesterday. As well as the Premier League which I paid for, I could also access a DFB (German) Cup match and CSL (Chinese Super League) matches, but only with Chinese commentary and almost no stadium sound (why do they do that?).

just bought my Premier League season pass on PPTV thing on my xiaomi box (connected to my TV) and only cost 258rmb. A steal for 380 matches (though of course many are at the same time so can't watch all of them), but even if I only watch one game a week it'll be a bargain.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Carrefour Giving Up On China

Walmart delivers a similar experience to Carre Four (crowded and claustrophobic underground mazes) but with lower prices. Walmart has also introduced self scanning payment machines so you don't need to queue up to pay, takes only a minute. And I hate the way that Carre Four give you about 4 or five pieces of paper and stupid little stickers for every transaction. It slows the payment process down for everyone and frankly is a waste of paper and ink.

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.
