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.

@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.

@Ishmael Hope all finishes well but for me it wasn't an exact issue I was trying to have sorted. It was more of an issue with my bodies general feeling half the time. I probably just have to put more focus than normal on my daily routine.

As said before to, other people's stories of good situations is not enough to give confidence in the whole system for me.

@geogramatt I've noticed they like to start as early as nursery (like my sons class) in some places now so that's got to be an improvement in thinking. I remember back in the day as a 5 year old starting swimming lessons in the UK. We never had our own school pool but would be taken to the local swimming pool on lesson days.

Maybe but the area is already known for it as the article says :

"Yuanmou County is already the celebrated home of the eponymously named Yuanmo Man — a distant ancestor of modern humans discovered in 1965. The prefecture also claims Yunnan's one and only Dinosaur Valley (恐龙谷)"

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 :)
