Obviously zoning is important. But there's good zoning and there's bad zoning. Chenggong as realized so far is the worst kind of zoning - single-use, non-mixed use, and isolated from the real world. China needs to reform its education system so that future graduatea are more innovative. Innovation happens when students interact with the real world, not when they're sequestered in hermetically sealed satellite town bubbles
You concentrate and contain. Urban density isn't the reason Dianchi is the way it is. Unmitigated runoff of hydrocarbon based chemical fertilizers into the lake basin, on the other hand, is. Ideally, a stricter runoff policy and more tactical urban density would go hand-in-hand.

This is a really nice new restaurant in Dali. High quality vegetarian and vegan food, varied menu, daily specials. They make their own kombucha, too. The environment is very chill...multiple layers, floor seating, an outdoor courtyard and terrace balcony overlooking the the roofs of the neighbors in old Dali
Serendipity is an honest-to-gosh American style diner, a concept I don't think I've ever really seen before in China.
They do salads, burgers, and pasta dishes, but the true stars of the menu are the breakfasts, which are served all day.
No measly hostel breakfast sets, these ones come with heaping servings of bacon and eggs and bottomless coffee.
No table seating. Everyone sits around the counter, where you can see what's going on in the kitchen and chat with the friendly staff.
The fresh donuts are the best I've had in China
The 68 kuai Saturday night all-you-can-eat buffet is a terrific deal.
Steak, pork loin, chicken schnitzel, pizza, two kinds of salad, creme de caramel, cheesecake, and lots of other stuff.
Recently experienced both very early morning departure and very late night arrival at Changshui. Was worried about making the connection to and from the airport, but both turned out well.
First, the departure. It was 7:30 am. I arranged a taxi to pick me up at 5:00. That he did. Cost: 100 yuan.
The departure was scheduled for 12:30 am, was delayed, and didn't get in until 2:30 am. I was sure I'd have to find a black cab, and wasn't even sure if I would find that. Instead, I was delighted to discover that the Airport Express Bus was still running! For 25 yuan it took me to the train station, where I then caught a cab for the short ride the rest of the way home. I was very impressed by this late night bus. I'd thought the buses only ran till around 11 pm-midnight. I don't know if this is a regular occurrence or not. Maybe, knowing my flight was delayed and there would be hundreds of passengers looking for a ride home, the airport dispatched an extra bus. If so, kudos to whoever was responsible!
