Forums > Living in Kunming > Raising a child in Kunming

Any of you foreigners raised a child in Kunming at least up to junior high or high school level? Was your intention to later go to university in China, or back to the USA (or other foreign country)? How'd it turn out?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Are Face Masks a must in Kunming?

When driving around the city with the car windows open, I often felt like I wish I had a face mask.

You'll be fine walking around off the main streets, but if you're stuck in traffic in downtown for a couple hours, you can definitely feel the pollution getting in your lungs. I could feel it making me cough a little bit when we did do a lot of driving around in the city. Next time I'm back, I'll remember to stow a face mask in my backpack for when I may need it, though its very uncomfortable for me.

Forums > Food & Drink > I Holic Pizza with thin crust

I had very good thin crust pizza at a place inside Aegean Mall on the 4th or 5th floor. The name was "Pizzario" or Pizzallo or very similar to that. I went there twice and had a pesto ham pizza. Slightly pricey (I'm often surprised by how pricey it is to eat out in Kunming, compared to what I think the average income is there). About 83 RMB for a filling personal pan size.

Forums > Food & Drink > Chinese perception of foreign restaurants

In light of Trump starting a trade war, what is the average Chinese feelings about foreign restaurants like McDonalds, KFC, Starbucks? They seem to hire lots of Chinese including manager. Do you think there'll be a backlash against companies like McDonalds and Starbucks, and maybe Chinese will boycott these brands in favor of Chinese-born companies, like say they boycott KFC in favor of Dico's? Are they already doing that?
