Forums > Living in Kunming > International Calling from Kunming

I use China Mobile- does anyone know if we can use the 12593 long distance code here in Kunming? The only thing I can find online says it only works for Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangdong.

If we can use it here, what are the rates, and can it be used for text messaging too?

Any light anyone could shed on this would be extremely helpful. I've been looking online for hours and still can't get any straight answers!

Elliot, we are very, very sad to see LB go, but we all know that with your talent and drive that whatever you do next will be even better! And next time, you won't have a crappy partner holding you back! Keep your head up!

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Decent place to stay near the Beijing airport

Do any of you know of a good motel/hotel that is affordable near the airport in Beijing? I stayed at one last time I traveled through that was pretty disgusting. Just want a clean, quiet place to crash before catching a flight early in the morning. Any advice would be much appreciated!!

I just signed up for mail at gmx.com. A couple of techie sites recommended it, and it seems pretty great so far. It imports your gmail mail, too, so you don't have to cancel your old account. And, if you have tree-huggin tendencies, it seems that the company's servers are run with renewable energy!

We've been using Ivacy for a year and a half, and its worked like a dream until this week. On top of that, we paid US $12 a year ago and still haven't run out of credits!! Of course, we only turn it on to use Facebook, Youtube, and whatnot. But maybe that's why it's gone away now? Who knows- not very tech savvy, but truly hope I don't have to pay $100 or more to get a new one!! If anyone else uses Ivacy and has any tips, let us know, please!!

Inside Laowo Xiaochi, Yunyi Xiang, across from Mayuan Xiaoxue, Mayuan

Go down Dianmian Dadao from Xizhan interchange, toward Kunshi Lu. After you pass Xiyuan Lu, start looking on your left for the alley (Yunyi Xiang). Go down the alley, watching on your left for a noodle shop called Laowo Xiaochi. Go through the noodle shop to get into the bar.

I think we're gonna try to put up some sort of sign at the intersection of Dianmian dadao and in front of the bar. Once on the alley, you can also watch for a green laser beam projected onto the sidewalk- in the past that has been the way the bar has made itself more noticeable.

From the information I've gathered, photos posted of interviewees on GoKunming are self-submitted- so any snarky comments you make are directed at the interviewee directly. That said, it is pretty sad indeed that you care more about someone's appearance than you do about the content of a very informative,intelligent, and interesting interview. What a sad, sad person you are! Thanks for proving what we already suspected!

Lovely courtyard restaurant in the center of Green Lake park. A great place for a western meal or some chill cocktails with friends. Friendly staff and an amazingly well stocked bar. They also have a great brunch special on most weekends. It's Kunming's hidden gem!

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!

My go-to when I'm craving cheap, delicious Chinese basics. Always speedy, clean and friendly. They're on Meituan, too, for when you're feeling lazy.
