Forums > Living in Kunming > Public transport app?

You can also use Baidu maps. It has a public transport layer which shows the bus routes around the city. To access (on android) press 打车 on the right of the screen, then 公交。For my app, this brings up a list of bus lines near you and from there you can navigate around to see more.

However, this is all in Chinese and not very intuitive to navigate.

Forums > Living in Kunming > New e-bike rules 2019

What's more, today I saw a few shops within the second ring road selling new bigger ebikes, this confuses me even more.

When I've got time I'll go and ask in a shop and update this thread with what they say

What's the current situation with ebikes in kunming ?
If I've correctly understood, the only bikes that are permitted are non-new ebikes that have been registered to your name and for which you've got insurance.
The only new bikes allowed are the smaller style with pedals.

However, I'm also reading that if you've got a motorcycle licence, insurance and a registered bike you're able to ride it around the city..

EDIT:I meant register a new bike

I'm a bit confused as to what is actually allowed. If someone could clarify or paste a link or something it would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Bottom line, for the average person who doesn't have stacks of dollars or proper connections it's impossible to cross overland into Myanmar. Flights were 1000 yuan last summer to Mandalay or rangon.

You can explore Shan state extensively from the Myanmar side as long as you don't get too close to the border areas.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > travelling form Yunnan to Myanmar

This summer when applying for a Myanmar visa at the kunming embassy I was informed that crossing at Ruili is forbidden and had to show plane tickets to obtain a visa. On the Myanmar side I got as far as Lashio before being told that further travel was not posdible. It may be possible if you have private guide and a stack of dollars but not using public buses

Don't worry, it's not visible while you're riding an inflatable crustacean in a human sized hotpot and can be easily avoided. ;)

You guys forgot to mention the eponymous Mile Buddha! There's a big statue / temple complex up a hill about 15 minutes out of town.
