Forums > Living in Kunming > Warning to E-Bike Riders

i would put the 500 yuan fine somewhere closer to hearsay. but a delivery guy was fined 500 yuan in front of dicos last week. as far as retrieving taken scooters you will need to go to the chenguan location responsible for whichever part of kunming the scooter was taken from. so if it was wuhua qu then you need to go to the wuhua chenguan. at least that's what i've been told.

I was just warned about my E-Bike being slightly outside the lines of the new designated parking zones. Somehow the chengguan has been granted the power to charge 500 yuan fines for parking scooters anywhere but within the designated zones. As far as I know, that is 2.5 times what they would charge for illegally parked cars. They will often also confiscate your scooter or bike. Get your wenmin face on.

The Lincang Salvador's is run by two of the former managers from the Kunming Salvador's. There are many of the same options on the menu but also lots of local food options and pizza. Location is...

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Going to Lincang

There is still a Salvador's Coffee House in Lincang. In addition, there is some of Yunnan's best local cuisine available in Lincang and the surrounding countryside. There is a beautiful new park in the northern part of the city. There is some decent hiking nearby. Otherwise it is kind of your average sleepy small Chinese city. You can take weekends up in Dali if you are looking for a break from routine.

I'm disappointed in myself for even considering giving this place another chance. I wanted to give my 4-month old a chance to see some live animals and I was sure that there was no way that the Kunming Zoo was as bad as it was 15 years ago. Somehow it was worse. It's disgraceful that with all of the changes that this city has undergone in the last two decades that this zoo still lacks any sense of decency or morality.

At nailer and tallamerican, I'm sorry to hear about your recent experiences. We wash everything with purified water and make all of our food fresh daily from whole ingredients in order to avoid any problems. We will review our procedures to assure that we continue to provide the safest and healthiest menu options possible. I hope you'll give us another try and I'd be happy to buy you a coffee if you are around any morning.

@GoKunming, it would be nice if there was a zero star option for reviews so that business owners can contribute without having to rate ourselves. I kind of feel like a d-bag giving myself stars 1-5. For some reason I settled on 4 as the least douchey ;).

Happy Birthday Bird Bar!

For thirteen years now, Dali is a better place because of you.

The Bird Bar Cafe has also just opened across the street. We ate there the other night and it was awesome. They've got a chef there right now who put together the best Japanese set meal I've ever had in China. Had to order a day in advance though.

Impressive not only for the quality of the dishes, but also for the fact that the owner grows all the vegetables for the restaurant himself without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Moreover, he offers a choice of 12 different homemade noodles to go with each pasta dish. We tried three and they were just about perfect. We also had an excellent eggplant parmesan, though it was not on the menu. It's not cheap, but definitely the best Italian restaurant in town right now. It was my first time there, but I think that they must have made vast improvements since the last reviews. Note that the restaurant is now called Magiano's.
