CMB bank app doesn't have English version.

Neither does the largest bank in the world based on assets in ICBC.

Fortunately the second largest CCB has. Options to change located left top tab > 设置 > 语言

Stay away from BOC's financial packages (理财产品). Customers lost money during pandemic, unlike ICBC or CCB.

Because majority Chinese travellers are restricted from vacationing abroad, cabin fever pent up domestic travelling have been on the rise. All of Mainland, not just within Yunnan.

Chinese citizens are also required to use this new movement tracker at various entry points of tourist destinations outside Kunming. I've witnessed this first hand, just not at Kunming Changshui Airport's domestic departure for Chinese citizens

For foreigners with language barrier, airline check-in attendants may guide you through the mini program registration process after WeChat circular barcode is scanned. They'd actually take your phone to make sure both greens for health code and movement tracker are not screenshots.

For foreigners flying out of Kunming Airport, apart from the usual scanning of health code (still active btw), another updated version which tracks your movement needs to be scanned and presented to flight check-in attendant for verification.

It is called "动态行程卡" and proves you haven't left Yunnan for example (or country) within last 14 days. If the case the app interface will be displayed as green like the health code.

A bar code will be presented to be scanned.

Or search for it on WeChat as "通信大数据行程卡." SMS verification needed to login.

Not sure if applicable for travellers outside Yunnan across Mainland. Hunch is yes.

A new city-wide campaign to eradicate cigarette butts in the works. Anyone who picks up 400 butts can trade in a carton of bathroom tissue rolls. 300 butts for an umbrella. Expect old Kunminger volunteers to participate in the cleanup. They love free stuff.

Local news on Douyin is reporting first flock of sea gulls have returned to Haigeng dam. 20 days earlier than usual. Eye witnesses living near Dianchi, have you seen them first hand? Tough Q1 for them in Kunming. We, the locals and tourists, will make it up this time around.

Agree with all sentiments above. Absolutely love the climate here. Low humidity level agrees with me. Furniture don't rust nor get moldy.

When you visit other places in China, while mingling you tell people you're from Kunming or Yunnan, they'd often respond 昆明是好地方!And they are right.

I'd add Shandong is also a worthy destination to look into for those who haven't been. People amiability culture surpasses all provinces on average. The stereotype is valid.

JanJal, adding covid experiences, perhaps Kunming stands out more. Based on limited first hand comparison. Though I can't speak for outskirt Dali where showering is a rare, luxury commodity, lol.

"A controversial project aimed at improving the water quality of Erhai Lake in southwest China has been put on hold following an outcry from environmentalists.

The 340 million yuan (US$47.7 million) project to line five creeks that flow into the lake in Dali, Yunnan province, with cement horrified local environment
