try giordano or balano. balano have a store just down the street from the bird and flower market and there's a giordano just around the corner. they both have branches in hong kong so their products are a bit more 'normal'.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Internet Slow?

mine has been the same. it's been too slow just to surf the net at times. i had put it down to the world cup and the way the networks are set up etc. guess you might be right tho... anyway, i hope it's ok soon.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Response to "gaoxing"

I don't know why i'm wasting my time on this...

first of all, i wouldn't consider myself a Salvador's 'regular'. i do however like the place and go there quite often. maybe there's another place with the same name because the people there seemed decent enough to me.

Gaoxing, you're an idiot. what were you thinking when you started posting abusive threads? what did you hope to gain? you're classified in dating was nothing short of ridiculous whatever your social issues may be. so now you're leaving to find easier women? good luck to you. good riddance! ...you won't be missed so just leave quietly and stop wasting your precious time.

Forums > Living in Kunming > tired of repeat ads offering cheap electronic goods

i've seen a lot of ads(spam) in the classifieds section recently offering lists of cameras/phones/computer stuff at low prices. if you reply they'll usually ask you to use cash transfer or another unsafe payment method. this certainly looks like a scam but has anyone been brave (stupid) enough to send money? it just annoys me that they're so persistent.

So they can now beat policemen along with the poor and anyone not 'connected'. Strange then that they appear frightened to challenge the relatively affluent illegal sellers on Wenhua Xiang. Maybe they're afraid that they might beat the son or daughter of Li Gang...

i went up to the cemetery last week but failed to find the way over to Jiaoye Park (and on to the bamboo temple). any advice? nice ride anyway though...

The only place worth going for a beer in Lijiang. Small place with a super friendly vibe. Great relaxed hangout for locals and travellers alike.

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.

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.

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.

I won't go there again. The yoghurt is tasty and the curries are usually ok (they seem to vary in quality depending on the day and time). What really annoys me is the fact that they can't comprehend that I order dishes to eat TOGETHER... if my curry arrives 30 minutes after all the other dishes it's not really acceptable. Then again, neither is the 1 hour wait for the rest of the food or the incorrect dishes being sent. By the way, why can't I sit on the 3rd floor until both of the other floors are packed full? Has it never occurred to them that I might want a quiet meal and, after all, I am paying for it!
