Forums > Living in Kunming > Transferring cash out of China

The rules and laws change periodically as banks are policy driven. That said once you adjust to the new rules - you should be good to go for a few years - so my dubious advice is brute force your way through the system so you have all the paperwork - and you should be good to go until the next policy change.

China's trying to make its financial infrastructures more rigorous and disciplined - although the prolific paperwork remains astonishing.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Apartment location recommendation

Max - you MAY want to try to search the recent gokunming classifieds - apartments are always being advertised - with and without room-mates.

Welcome to Kunming! The Wuhua location is also known as the Green Lake Campus (that's just what I call it - dunno about others).

Forums > Living in Kunming > Hijacking the forums

Peter - you were baited.

As for Gokm TOS - since this thread is about hijacking....

• You must be at least one year old to use GoKunming.

Did ANYONE actually read the Gokm TOS (terms of service)?


No results found.



If you have feasible economic energy solutions competitive in price, energy output, resource consumption (land, rivers, etc) feel free to enlighten me. Hydro comes with a cost - that is well established - the issue is does anyone have viable alternatives?

Nice signs - so obviously sponsored and incited by cursed foreign NGOs with no responsibilities to the actual people of Myanmar. Hydropower provides a source of sustainable renewable energy. Energy is one of the core pillars of all sustainable economies.

No economy - no development - poverty, healthcare, education.



Just stopped into Prague Beichen for dinner a few nights ago - and I'm shocked at how good their food is - five star international hotel quality. Even the fruit-based drink was made from genuine fruit - as opposed to the usual domestic fare of fruit syrup with chunks of fruit added. The food was well-presented and "plated".

The restaurant itself has had a major overhaul and now occupies both the ground floor and the second floor - well illuminated without being blinding, wide open and airy space (2nd floor), nice attentive but non-intrusive service, and reasonable prices for excellent cuisine.

Will absolutely return several times more, to savor and experience other menu items.

A pleasant surprise and culinary delight - great place for a date or even a quiet business meeting. Excellent atmosphere.


Just had a quiet and LONG lunch on their tiny patio and as usual, coffee is great, food is excellent, salads fresh AND Wicker Basket has lots of frozen foods, cheese, etc to binge buy and stock up your fridge and freezer at reasonable (not eye-gouging) prices.

Service is excellent - but it's NOT a Michelin rated establishment - so you do need to hunt down the staff to order - which is nice when one doesn't want to be constantly pestered.


Excellent coffee, tea, and simple meals - to include waffles and various incarnations of sandwiches. Ground floor is NO SMOKING, second floor (where they hide the bathrooms), SMOKING.

Extraordinarily popular place - beautiful location, typical service for Kunming - which means when it's good, it's stellar, when it's bad - it's terrifying - so they have a quality consistency problem that's reflected in the various staff and shifts.

However - it's still a great place to meet, hang out, chill, relax, etc. Just remember to DIY (do it yourself) most of the time.


+1 on the Steak Burrito, coffee, and fries - seems to be my standard diet here these days.

Don't forget - you can also order CHEESE of various kinds - if you're having difficulty buying cheese. I picked up 1 kg of fresh mozzarella last night, at a very competitive and reasonable price. Ground floor - as usual - NO SMOKING - so that worked out quite well, I believe.

Wait staff a little rough around the edges compared to previous generations of staff - cleaning and clearing tables - providing menus - the basics could use a refresher course - but aside from that - excellent service as usual.


Caesar's Salad and one of their fresh fruit flavored teas - always my favorite culinary delight here (see my review 6 months ago).

Don't forget to pick up a few freshly baked bread rolls, pastries etc on the way out.

For a NO-SMOKING designated environment - comfortable, quiet, elegant, for a bistro-ish experience.
