We had those at the airport in Kunming and in Shanghai. The one with the up arrow seems to be for transportation. The other app is still being used for health checks, the one with the lungs icon in green.

@AlPage, the certificate from Kunhua was not bilingual, nor did it have my passport number, just my name. Interestgly enough, my wife did say that our test results have been added to our green health code app on the phones.

In our initial search we did phone the Yunnan International Travel Hygiene Healthcare Centre 云南国际旅行卫生保健中心 (where they do the visa medicals)[...] . They do Covid19 tests as well, and may be able to provide the format for international travel. It might be worth you giving them a call.

I just remembered I went to this place a couple of years ago. Jizushan (鸡足山)Chicken's Foot Mountain, is very interesting for temple lovers with many temples, as it is an important Buddhist site. One of the temples very high on a mountain pinnacle. There are lots of other temple complexes as you go up the mountain.

It is very busy during religious festivals. Hence there are many hotels and guest houses. It is very quiet at other times of year.
There is a very long bus ride up the mountain, or an even longer hike. The village is at 1900m altitude. Warning, the main temple is 3240m altitude. The air is thin. There are also many great walks in the area.
Jizuzhen, the village, is about 80km due east of Dali old town.

Went to Kunhua hospital for the Covid19 test this morning about 1030am. The queues were horrendous. Went shopping instead.
Returned for the test this afternoon. No queue at all, we went straight in, less than 2 minutes later it we were all done. Afternoon testing from 2-5, results collection after 8pm the same evening.

Collection at Kunhua - Print out from a customer computer terminal yourself. When you register you get a swipe card. This goes into any one of the hospital many customer self serve terminals. You use these terminals to book appointments, pay for consults, treatment, and drugs, etc. The terminals will also print out your test results on A4 paper, these reports are bar coded.

In short, forget the am test, go for the pm test and you still get your results the same day.

I want to garner a list of interesting or beautiful places in Yunnan that have not yet been overwhelmed by tourists.

For some of us who have been unable to travel elsewhere in the last year. In the past I have visited several places in Yunnan, some I have no wish to re-visit because of over commercialization and crowds. I am also sure that there are many other 'famous' places that I would not want to visit for the same reasons. I know that there are many other beautiful places that are off the beaten track that have maintained their original charm.

If you know of such places like this, please share in a post the name of the place, where it is near, and why it is worth a visit.

Looking forward to learning about some interesting locations.
