Forums > Travel Yunnan > Any Recent Passport Renewal Experience?

At the time I mistakenly didn't get the limited passport and thought I could wait it out, and was unable to call my visa guy because my phone was locked up while I was in the consulate. After I got out I was told by him he needs my new passport info ASAP and can't wait till the last minute. So I'm still not sure about that but I do know that it will be free. (presuming what they said was accurate) The Chengdu airport and Chengdu in general (other than the hotel thing) was extremely chill and didn't need a health code when coming out or going in, however Kunming airport requires the green one twice to get in.

I went yesterday and processing was easy, but apparently the office of printing passports is closed because of covid now and they are not sure when I can get my new passport. There is a good chance I will need to use an emergency passport that is only good for one year while I wait for my new passport to arrive. My advice would be to either call (8628) 85583992 to contact the general consulate or email them at [email protected] for the most reliable information available. Furthermore, if you are looking for a place to stay the night when you go, expect most foreigner friendly hotels to turn you down. Even if you go to the local police station, get a document saying it is OK to stay there, and going back with the stamped document, having the police call and talk to them, they will still say no with a bunch of inaccurate excuses that conflict each other, leading to an immeasurable amount of frustration. However, Sandals Guesthouse, 拖板鞋客栈,about 3.5 KM from the consulate and quite cozy will be cool and reasonable, so go ahead and book there.

I would agree with Mr. Woodswoods and also argue that water reductions and outages should be city wide and not restricted to what seems to be the largest common people(老百姓) neighborhoods in the city.

@scally,

I'd be careful of how much information you provide to this Matt character. Lots of hunters from Georgia and I wouldn't be surprised if he was planning on using this as an opportunity to get in the ivory trade. Shame on you Georgia Matt!

You obviously know little to nothing about the Asian Black Bear, so let me fill you in, Matt from Georgia.

The Asian Black Bear is not only found in Zhaotong, but in many parts of Asia, including, but not limited to, the Indian Subcontinent, Taiwan, Korea, northeastern China, the Russian far east and the Honshū and Shikoku islands of Japan. While being similar to the Brown Bears that you Georgians can relate to, the Asian Black Bear interestingly is more lightly built with slender limbs. While being naturally diurnal, (not relating to one's bathroom habits) in places populated by humans they tend to be more nocturnal. Most importantly, they are characterized by the white V-shape on their chest.

Read more books, Matt from Georgia, and you might be able to learn more about this and other mammals native to Yunnan Province.

Lost Garden's kitchen has became a Saratrical masterpiece! Great tea just the way it should be made, combined with tangy and titilating specialties from the south of the US, South of the border, and beyond! Rooftop is Kunmings top place to catch some rays and chill out with a book or some buddies and booze. Look forward to menu expansion and much love to the mastermind chef in the Kitchen!

Revolutionary in the grand scheme of food options for health nuts and herbivores in Kunming. From some spicy fresh spring rolls to rockin' lentil curries, a great option for anyone who likes healthy and unique!

After somewhat of an 'As You Like' hiatus, caused by work and life in general, I was lucky enough to find some time for a latte and a mushroom and cream calzone at lunch today. The place has continued to improve in both the categories of taste and general quality. Those who haven't been, I would say it is in your best interest to make an effort to find the place and if you are in the Wenlinjie/wenhuaxiang area, you'll discover its right under your nose. Great place to chill, relax, and get away from the traffic, noise, and distractions that Kunming brings your way.
