Then seeker should plainly write seeking Muslim.

Common netiquette to say: seeking rich, tall, handsome straight man or woman.

Tactless to say: no poor fatties, no shorties, no uglies, no gays. That just doesn't come out right. :)

Forums > Living in Kunming > Health QR code not working?

Updated movement tracker Wechat mini program for domestic air passengers:

Search for 国务院客户端 (guo wu yuan ke hu duan)

Second row to the right click on 防疫行程卡 (fang yi xingcheng ka)

Next screen, SMS verification required.

Hopefully followed by large circle encased green arrow pointing up, showing your phone number and date above (to be renewed after 14 days).

Make screenshot. This will be presented upon arrival at other airports in China.

Yunnan health code from Wechat mini program still required, though different mini program health codes tailored for other Provinces may be needed as well. Best activate them in advance prior to leaving Kunming for convenience sake.

Forums > Living in Kunming > New Health check form at bus/metro

To follow-up on Lijiang's beaten tracks where checkpoints may be of concern for foreigners, particularly as national day looms:

For main entrances to Old Town Lijiang, facial recognition implementation on the spot at turnstile. Your face will be photographed and facial biometrics unloaded to database in real-time for automated passage. For foreigners, passport info will also be recorded on paper.

Similar ordeal at Lijiang Railway Station. Face biometrics will be recorded and passport info written down.

Lijiang Black Dragon Pond Park requires presentation of ID. Screenshot image of ID/passport on phone would suffice.

Usual green health codes presented pro forma in above cases.

For Suhe ancient town further north, just show health code at main entrance, and make mandatory zero-fee Meituan purchase. QR code receipt to be scanned at turnstile. Laxed or no checks enforced at side entrances of Suhe 古镇 for frequenters.

No checkpoints whatsoever to smaller Baisha 古镇 closer to Jade Mt.

Less strict for Dali, but some smaller hotel/inns have been ordered by local police to not take foreigners due to the Ruili scare. Touch base to verify with hotels in advance. Bigger and more established hotels in Dali like Hilton, Dali International, Indigo, Argyle, etc. are fine.

In a bid to reinvigorate economic activities in Kunming, over 300 designated streets around town will allow small business vendors to set up stalls (摆摊) on the sidewalk for off book revenue opportunities. Night market scene of yore may once again blossom back. Chengguan (城管) will have a field day overseeing and prohibiting undesignated spots.

Bump for this fine interview by Chris. Oldie but a goodie. Rest assured Brian and Jeanee, The Linden Centre is still standing magnificently. The patio view of the moutainscape is sublime. Less crowded than last year where waiting list was required. Now is a opportune time to visit. Unfortunately, Xizhou's park further down the road has been closed since last September due to road construction and has yet to reopen despite three wheelers and horse drawn carriages hawking tourists.

The dining area's homage to Flying Tigers is a reminder US-Sino relations were once intimately closer. USA and China need to rekindle that bygone spirit if ever is the time.
