Forums > Living in Kunming > Are Face Masks a must in Kunming?

I used a Respro mask for cycling. That was specifically to filter out ALL fine particulates (down to and including PM2.5). The replacement filters weren't cheap but it was a lot cheaper than a new pair of lungs! After about a month the filters were often a filthy grey/black near the mouth and nose so I'm pretty sure they did their job. Yes, the surgical type masks offer little protection but pollution masks do and are worth wearing if you'll be doing any outdoor exercise (running/jogging/cycling). You won't need it for daily life.

Forums > Living in Kunming > How to get rid of mildew odor?

There's a Chinese product called 84. I've only ever used it to remove stains from white clothes but it MIGHT work well with stinky clothes using Alex's technique and it's widely available.

a few districts in Shanghai have started issuing 'Start up visas' as a trial scheeme but it'll be a while before they make it to kunming (if ever). I doubt Dali would get them earlier than Kunming. Good luck and let us know if you manage to get going.

taxi drivers (ebike/motorbike/licensed/Didi) seem to hate the competition from these bikes and have been known to 'move' them or otherwise make them unusable. I've witnessed some shop owners moving the bikes from near their store front. I've also seen several local xiaoqu guards and city management officers piling them up recently. There were always quite a few within eyesight of my apartment but not any more... I now need to walk around to find one which negates the whole idea in my opinion. At least one of these companies have to fold soon.

a lovely place to stay with great views of Yulong xueshan (JadeDragon snow mountain) from the roof! Beautifully decorated and hosts that make you feel like family. A million miles better than most other places locally. I can't recommend this place enough.

thanks for all the good food and drinks over the past couple of years. i honestly didn't go there after some prices were almost doubled (such as the Coffee shake)but i will miss the place.
best of luck with whatever comes next!

i thought i'd give this place another try as my usual place was closed today. even though there is now more choice, i was not impressed by the menu. they do have an apparently good range of coffees for up to 80 kuai but even a basic latte is Y26 now. the drinks were OK but nothing special and certainly not worth the money. the place looked somehow cleaner too and was certainly busier! why have so many of the cafes in this area decided that it's fine to raise their prices by so much (in some cases almost double)? i doubt i'll be going back. the 2 stars are because it was just OK and they've obviously made some effort.

Kunming's best Mexican restaurant and a great place to entertain too. In fact, I can't think of many other places that could even compete with this level of class and quality! Prices are reasonable bearing in mind the price of ingredients and what you're getting. It is well decorated inside even if it's not 'authentic' Mexican enough for some. The outside patio is great for a few relaxing beers with friends (something i have tried and can thoroughly recommend). I've lost count of the times I've been to Cacao and I've never been disappointed. One star off because I would prefer a bit more spice!

not a bad selection of stuff and some of the staff obviously know their way around a bike. however, the 'special' prices for foreigners and the fact that some of the staff will use a big hammer to fix anything keeps me from going back. you could do better.
