Just stayed 3 nights at New Era Hotel- Friday July 8-Monday July 11.
Be aware that management TURN OFF the aircon at 3am and it does not come back on til later in the afternoon for a few hours.
The hotel website says rooms have aircon; that is true...what they don't say is that management knows best if we need aircon or not!!
The desk staff did offer us a fan!
We didn't move because one friend was ill and did not want the hassle of moving again.
Thanks for the info. We were able to take the K18 for RMB2 to near Beichen.
For your information, a 2 minute walk further down the hill from the main bus terminal is the local bus terminal where we took the K18. Very helpful people made sure we took the right bus.
There are buses there to many different parts of Kunming.
Thanks for all your comments. Please forgive me for poor communication.
I am not asking about the bus from the airport.
I am arriving from the south of Yunnan to the bus station that is about a 15 minute subway ride from the airport. It is from this bus station that I want to get close to the northern WalMart. Sorry again for not being clearer. Thanx
