Forums > Living in Kunming > Work history certification for work visa

I'm in the process of applying for a work visa - one of the things requested is some kind of authentication that I worked at all the places I say I worked in my work history (that sentence sounded awkward). This isn't really something we do in my home country (usually just a list on a resume or CV is sufficient, nothing official from the work place), and it seems incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to actually get letters from all my former employers (some of them 10 years ago!) certifying that I worked there. Anyone else have this experience?

Forums > Travel Yunnan > High-Speed Rail to Lijiang

Any updates on the high-speed rail to Lijiang? I heard it's opening on the 28th (a week from today!), but not sure if it's possible to buy tickets yet, and if so, how to (nothing on ctrip).

Forums > Living in Kunming > iPhone hardware repair

I got my iPhone camera fixed (still not sure if it was a hardware or software problem) at the Apple store (close to Nanping Jie). Quick fix and no problems since. I personally wouldn’t feel comfortable having it fixed other than at Apple authorized stores.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Online print service like Vistaprint

I’m looking to print postcards. In the US this was super simple with an online service like Vistaprint. Anything like that in China? (I don’t mind if it’s in Chinese, as I would expect it to be) Or perhaps a good brick and mortar store locally that could do it?

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Hong Kong by rail via Shenzhen

Last year I traveled from HK to KM via Shenzhen HSR. I enjoyed it, and it was very convenient (Hong Kong MTR, walk across the border, Shenzhen subway to high speed rail station). Scenery wasn’t great except for around Guilin (not all of the high speed rail lines you take will go this way), which was spectacular. I think the price is comparable to a cheap plane ticket, and takes longer, but I found it more comfortable. Worth trying at least once in my opinion.
