it's been Y100 an hour for the pitch between whoever shows up. it's not the best venue and i'm waiting for John Xie (above) to get back to me with the address of a better place. most of those who come are away for the holiday and we'll start again on the first tuesday back. like i say, it's a 5-a-side kick about at the moment... if you're looking for something competitive then 'KFC' would be your best bet. Piers has all the info on them.

this just started as a work/social thing but from the amount of interest it looks like it could get bigger. i'm happy to have a kick around with anyone and i'm sure that my colleagues would say the same. if enough people come along we could even get some teams together i guess...
by the way, it's about Y100 per hour for a pitch.

went to that place earlier... not easy to find! for anyone thinking of going, it's not exactly well maintained. the astroturf is dirty as is the rest of the place. also, the pitch is a bit small (even for 5-a-side). anyway, it was a bit of fun.

if anyone wants to join in next Tuesday we'll be there again. it should be around 2 - 3pm but send me a message on 15288371960 to confirm. don't expect much as we just go for a kick about rather than a serious game or anything!

thanks for the info and the quick reply. i'm going to play in a few minutes with a few guys from work but you'd be welcome to join us next time. it will hopefully be a regular thing after today.

Thank you GoKM. I (almost) always enjoy the travel type articles. Even though it's not the first time Nizu (or Niru) has been featured on this website, at least you've brought it to the attention of travellers before the coach loads of litter-dropping tourists arive or before it's swallowed and 'improved' by the national park. Funny (NOT), that was the fate predicted in this 2015 article:

Thanks Sean. A really interesting read - more relatable and less of a corporate sheen. Some lovely pictures in there too. We could all use a break from our phones sometimes but the 'always on' Wechat is quickly becoming a fact of everyday life in China, epecially for those in work. This was another little reminder that life is beautiful.

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!
