Forums > Living in Kunming > Calling card from mobile phones

I wonder if I could use a calling card to call mobiles in the UK. I've been using Skype but the calls to mobile phones are expensive. @Liumingke - let me know how you get on. The Taobao link oreven search term might be useful too.

As Janjal mentioned, Yuanyang rice terraces is another nice trip from Kunming, especially if you like photography or hiking. It's nice throughout the year and different in each season. It can be done in a (very long) day but you'd miss the nicest times - dawn and dusk.

Kunming itself has very few things to see or do apart from those mentioned above but it does have quite a nice railway museum if you're interested in trains!

@Dan Maybe.

@Liumingke True. Maybe they should add 'whites only'.

Maybe they should stop the BS (Bluberry Sundaes) and STFU (Sit Together with the Forgetful Uncle). At least most other schools with religious ideals leave it for the application form or don't mention it until interview.

On the bright side, I guess it saves time.

I've just seen a job advertised on here. Amongst the requirements are a 'Strong belief in JC' and 'A real native English speaker'. I can understand that they wouldn't want a fake teacher but ADVERTISING a religious background as a requirement? Are they stupid enough to think that the authorities can't guess who they are refering to as JC? Is this ad even legal?

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.

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!
