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.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Working two jobs

legally: absolutely not. Your working permit is tied to a certain contract at a certain company. Do not ask your company, if they allow you to work another job, they are complicit in you breaking the law. My official advice - respect the laws of the country and just do the job that provides your visa. My unofficial advice: there are more jobs for foreigners than there are suitable foreigners. Personally, I don't do it, but many people do.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > High-speed train from Kunming to Dali

More people will get on at Kunming than Kunming South, so they need to allow plenty of time for the passengers to all get on the train. I agree that 32mins is excessive though, 15mins is plenty.

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.
