Forums > Living in Kunming > Criminal background check

If you're a US citizen, you'll probably have to remotely request the check from your state of residence. You can have someone file the request for you though, so you don't have to be there in person. The Chengdu and other US embassies in China do not offer that service (plus you'll need to get it notarized, and then authenticated by your Sec of State-Lt. governor)

Forums > Living in Kunming > iPhone weather app

Anyone else experiencing this: recently my iPhone's weather app stopped reporting air quality index for Kunming. Same when I checked Shanghai, Beijing, HK, and neighboring Chengdu. Not alarming per se, just odd...

Forums > Living in Kunming > Meteor Shower

Anyone watching the Geminids meteor shower tonight? I heard it's supposed to be at it's peak and viewable in KM. Tips on best place to view?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Gingerbread houses

You know me, this is another food-related post, but you all have been so helpful(':

Trying to give a gingerbread making experience to some local kids, but can't seem to find graham crackers or a jar of frosting anywhere (Carrefour/Walmart). Any leads?

Visited the Kunming Waterfall Park yesterday and was fairly impressed-beautiful views, clean & upkept grounds, lots to see & people watch. Update from the earlier gokunming article profile: the viewing bridge and path behind the waterfall are both now open and definitely enhance the experience. Bring an umbrella unless you want to get soaked going behind the waterfall.

To get there, I took metro line 2 to 司家营 and bus #Z65 to 天宇澜山小区. The 司家营 bus stop is almost directly outside exit B.

Tip: the #Z65 bus runs in a loop to and from the waterfall park, so on the return trip you'll catch the same Z65 bus at the same stops you departed from. Make sure the return bus shows that it's headed back to 司家营 (the characters will show on the ticker outside the bus, or you can ask);occasionally a Z65 bus will drive a different return route through residential.
