Forums > Living in Kunming > Internet not working today?

Since I've been in China I've had several upgrades on my mobile/data packages as they were not doing the job good enough. Every time it starts out great but within six months the package needs upgrading. I usually fight it for a while but in the end I have to get the upgraded package.
Either the internet data is getting really fat (which it is but not that fast) or I feel I'm being misled.
My current monthly package run out of data a few days back and is running a restricted data stream already.


Does anyone know the best provider + package on offer here in Kunming at the moment? I'm willing to change providers, numbers etc as with most modern people these days, the internet is an important part of everything I do.

For the Phone by the way not home, with the home Wifi I just have to live with China's peak traffic times as the only problem. Oh and extending my router signal as it's pretty weak seems as I'm on the other side of the house to the router but that's a simpler problem.

Definitely time makes a big difference in the past few months. Previously anytime you could get a half decent connection with Express but now it's just during the day and the evenings (usually from about 9/10pm) it slows to an unbelievable crawl.

Gave up on using evenings mostly.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Kunming's tripadvisor problem

@ishmael you saying 'tend to use my gut or hearsay from friends' are not really applicable to newbies to a city like Kunming and can lead to some very tender gut issues ;o)
Everyone knows ratings (for anything) are not 100% true but if you haven't been somewhere that's not the norm, you may want some kind of insight even if you know what you're seeing is laced with the odd propped up listing.

I'll never 100% trust any reviews for anything but they at least give me some semblance of knowledge where before I might have had Zero.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Favorite snacks from big grocery store

@ishmael not a bad corner shop you’ve got there then but corner shops are usually markedly different in stocking some types of stuff. Obviously the staples of Chinese life they all have but go outside of that and you never know till you go to the store. Mine don’t do a few things I always want so you’ll catch me in carrefour regularly.
Not saying that’s a Chinese thing either, same worldwide.

As for snacks from carrefour, does cheese count as healthy? Often buy and if not over eaten surely it’s only good for you.

The only snacks I get in Carrefour which I don't see elsewhere are their fruit and nut chocolate bars and a pack of Haribo.

Yep, now you know why my health ain't top notch lol.

Mind you I do get a lot of tinned Tuna which I use to make several easy eat stuff like salads, pastas etc.


No results found.




Been here several times lately and every time I've enjoyed my meal. Don't know why some others have said it was pricey, the price has always seemed fair to me :)
