Forums > Living in Kunming > New MRT Line 4 Opening

We drove past a Line 5 station last night. All the lights were on and it looks like they are about ready to go. I guess that they will achieve THIS deadline ;-)

My daughter went to Tongren Hospital, near the corner of Hongta Lu and Guangfu Lu. She had no complaints. One advantage of Tongren is that it is not huge, and not crowded. Like most of the hospitals, the VIP service is not expensive either.

From my experience, that sort of restriction is not unusual. You might have some luck with some of the backstreet places on 1-2-1 Da Jie, or the surrounding area. If they cannot help you it will be because that battery type is not, or no longer, available in China.

I lived in Shanghai for a number of years, it is pretty humid all year round. The summer is hot and wet, and yes once you walk out of the door in the morning you know you will be drenched in sweat all day. The winter is cold and damp, with the damp getting into everything, bedding, clothes, even your bones.

Pay in Shanghai is much higher, but you need the extra money just for apartment rents and higher prices for entertainment.
Shanghai is a good place for work, entertainment, shopping, and transportation, but it really is living in the rat race. Shanghai offers a higher standard of living, Kunming by comparison is more relaxed and offers a better quality of life. IMHO.

I think the advantages for short term rental ebikes are the same as they were for short rental bicycles. With the added advantages of no additional cost charging, and no overnight parking issues (ebikes worse than bikes for this one).
The other advantages for the user, shared by both ebike and bicycle, include: free parking, can park anywhere, you can cross town on the metro and pick up another ride, no concern about theft (a big concern), and I am sure there are others.
