Advantages. For those not on a work visa, if your marriage fails or spouse dies, you will not get kicked out when your visa expires. You can work and do casual work legally, includes the music gigs, casual work is technically illegal now. If the hospital you are registered with has the online booking system, you can make appointments online, you don't have to go to the hospital to make appointments. You can stay in small cheap hotels that are closed to waiguoren, I have been refused entry to cheap hotels 3 times this year as old policy seems to be being enforced again. I am sure there are other advantages.

Forums > Living in Kunming > which chinese insults do you find most offensive?

There is no perfect approach to dealing with a hateful online troll. However, online trolls can be aggressive and unpredictable, so there are a few responsive actions that should always be avoided.
1. Down voting. Doing so can escalate the negative behavior, sometimes prompting the troll to post another more ridiculous and negative post. By engaging in even this negative way, you are feeding the ego of the troll.
2. Get defensive. It can be tempting to respond in defense of your previous comment or resort to threats or accusations. Sinking to the troll’s level will only fuel the fire.
3. Give them what they want. Trolls are looking for a fight; they want to make your response the punchline of a long and elaborate joke. They thrive on attention, so responding with anger or aggression will only satisfy and encourage the behavior to continue. In fact responding in anyway gives the troll the sense of validation, which they need.

Some dogs have a reputation for being yappy. Some breeds are know to bite people. Some breeds have been documented as killing people, some breeds more than others. I once heard of a chihuauhau killing rottwieler, it stuck in his throat.

I am with lemon on this. There are good owners but in a culture where a dog is not mans best friend, there are more bad ones. There are also problem breeds and the good dogs get lumped in with the bad. As for the muzzle law, well laws don't mean much here.

They have been around for about 3 weeks now. They would manage even if people didn't feed them, they are scavengers and survive the rest of the year without human input. I also doubt that they only visit Kunming.



Beer, 5 stars. A genuine German beer process, and a very drinkable product.

Food, 1 star. As a previous reviewer noted, autobahn rest stop type food. A very limited menu of lackluster choices. You would get more choice at a street corner schnell imbis in Germany.
The mushroom pizza (choice of one pizza) was OK but very small for the price. The sausage was not hot. Meat products should not be served luke warm, even if they are factory cooked like a Bratwurst.

I would go back for the beer, but would not take anyone there for the food.
