Forums > Living in Kunming > Other options to 30 day stay extensions?

@the dude,

We spoke with the "visa officer" at the PSB recently re: switching from spousal to work.

They said at this moment, no need for the z visa, they will switch directly so therefore no need to leave, this is temporary during the pandemic.

Dali and Lijiang know nothing of this. We were going to double check, but have not as of yet.

You could try calling the KM PSB to double check.

This was the info from last week.

Forums > Living in Kunming > The importance of TEFL

Do you know if the TEFL needs to be certified or notarized first, or verified through an embassy?

I haven't had to do this before, and hear conflicting information.

No Wall Street Pete!!
NO wall street pete!

No more corporate controlled candidates, thank you very much.
No more neoliberals, thank you very much.
No more BULLSHIT, and the same old corporate controlled candidates who do not support the working class.


Yep. I have always loved and still love the "Old Towns" no matter the naysayers and the "purists" of china travelers.
Yes, they are often crowded, overpriced, not authentic for the most part, but they have tons of personality IMO, and can always find great content for shooting pics or vids.



Hoping on what Ocean said, it's worth a visit, but if one wasn't going to the surrounding areas as well, I think I might as just visit the ocean park at Dounan, about the same, and cheaper.

Right now price is 230 per adult, add 30 yuan and it's year round pass.

kids about 150, plus 30.
kids under 110 cm free.

The biggest, and longest show is the circus, runs about an hour.

Everything Ocean stated about the park and shows is accurate.

Parking is 10 yuan and can stay overnight if adventurous?

Toilets and water close.
Food stalls and restaurants, but close at park closing time at 6 pm.

Nothing is in walking distance to the park, but there is a local market every morning, we went there to stock up on food and eat breakfast.

I think the biggest benefit of this place, if one is considering the annual pass, is the other local places to visit.

There is a large farm with a play area nearby, camping, and tiny home and trailer rentals.
Another parking lot to stay for free.

Shilin Forest and Jiuxiang Cave are close, with another large lake nearby and other farms.


Went there with the kids, was very cool.

Can rent traditional outfits, take pictures in the temple and throne, my girls loved it.
The town itself is great if you like the old traditional buildings, and they had some shows put on, music, dancing, and little skits.

For about 35 rmb each, kids free, was worth it, wished we had more time there.
