It would be a little bit of a hike if you are walking, but just down Beijing Lu, near the intersection with Baiyun Lu (there's a Carrefour right there), is where TenWest is located. I have not personally studied there, but I've heard good things. Also, I'm pretty sure there are numerous buses you could hop on and be there in 5 minutes from where you live.
I just bought some yesterday, at the place that I believe hslaaa was talking about. I think that section of street is called Long Xiang Jie. If you are walking toward the big traffic interchange from the corner of Dong Feng Xi Lu and Wen Lin Jie, the market is on your right, past the big noodle restaurant on the corner (diagonally opposite from movie theater). The entrance is set back from the street, up a set of concrete stairs. The stall directly in front of you when you walk in was selling them. Good luck!
I just got back from a trip to the States, and when I asked all my friends what they'd like me to bring back for them, one of them asked for rigid gas permeable contact solution because its very hard to find here. So, I'd recommend bringing it with you!
Booked a decent room and got upgraded for free to a suite on the club floor. Room had an amazing bathtub with a view of the whole city, plus a sitting room and a separate bedroom with nice views as well. I'd say the service and décor in general were just ok, but the free cocktail hour and buffet breakfast that were included made it an above average experience.
One of the best weekend getaways I've had in a very long time. Wonderful, kind owners, gorgeous surroundings, and awesome bread and pizza. There's also a well stocked bar. It's just a lovely, chill place for anyone that's looking for a quick escape from the city. I'd recommend calling ahead to book if you plan on staying overnight or want to make special arrangements for food.
I've always been a fan, but the new menu is especially exciting. Tried the pulled pork pizza and the burger last night- yum! Happy that there are more varied options now. Can't wait to try the 4 cheese pasta next-looks AMAZING!
I'm very surprised at the last reviewer's comments, because I've lived in Kunming for more than seven years, and have eaten at Salvador's at least once a week for most of my time here, and I'm pretty sure it's one of the few places in town I can count on NOT to make me sick! The food is consistently good-especially the new tacos, and the service is wonderful. The newly expanded space is lovely and open, as well. I'll certainly continue to make it my home away from home!
