The other thing I would say is, don't make fixed plans (flights, hotel deposits) for visits to the UK after October 31st. If UK does go through with BREXIT and leave the EU it is uncertain that the Schengen visa will be accepted for entry to the UK.

Ha, looking at lemon lover's comments about a place on the Pudu river. We were following the river north of Yangbi, and there are hot springs there. The locals had built a concrete block shed around a pool Two problems, firstly was the litter, secondly the whole area by that river, because it was warmer, was alive with flies, the big house fly type. We still camped there, but it was days before we got all of the flies out of the car.

Yes, Xishan has several government sites. The Taiping side has places, but no view. Once you get north of the G56 highway, there could be some nice places up around Bamboo Temple facing Kunming, and out towards Fumin across mountain trails. Look at GoogleEarth, not blocked.
Heading south from Xishan, on the west side of Dianchi lake, once you pass Bainidong (8km south of the cable car way), you should also be clear.
You really want to be above the road, not below on the lakeside, if you want to avoid being seen.

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.
