Forums > Living in Kunming > living in Dali and alternatives

@tigertiger, any villages you have in mind ?

I have checked the available flights and I don't think it's that bad, there is

at least one direct flight a day to the main Chinese cities but it is also good to know that Lijiang and Kunming airport are not too far away.

Thank you all for your input. Some smaller towns in Yunnan are also quite appealing but I don't think my wife would do anything smaller than Dali so we ll first plan on visiting Dali in March and stay at an airbnb outside of the old town. After years staying in apartments I would love to have a house with a yard but my reconsider if they are more prone to break ins. Kid's education will become a concern in a few years so this Dali move might only be for a few years.

@cloudtrapezer @JanJal Thank you for your replies. I forgot to mention that I have a job already; I work from home and I am required to travel quite a lot, mainly within mainland China.

I am not worried too much about amenities as my wife masters the art of Taobaoing. What I actually worry about the most is mainly how my wife would like it as I am often out of town for work. She is a westernized Chinese and she stopped working to take care of our son. I wonder if she would find friends and activities there and if there is any daycare or preschool for our son. I have heard that many foreigners live in Dali but somehow was not able to find any expats website, forums or groups online. Do you know any by any chance ?

Hi everyone,

I have been living in a few big cities in China and now that I have a wife and a kid I would like to relocate to Yunnan so that we could have a healthier life (cleaner air, outdoor activities, less crowd...) and still live in a convenient location with an airport not too far way ...

My first choice was Dali (even if I have never been there) but I have heard that it is getting overdeveloped and that it is not what it used to be. I know most of you are probably living in Kunming but I would love to hear your opinion and advice on Dali and whether you would recommend other places instead (kunming, lijiang, xishuangbanna, ... ?). The internet is full of information for people going to Yunnan for tourism but very few for people who live or want to live in Yunnan.
