Forums > Living in Kunming > Any movies playing?

why do it to yourself? i have had visits to the flicks in China that have gone smoothly, but that's maybe 20% of the time. errors in projection, people on the phone, errors with audio, people not understanding seat numbers... it's a joke. if it were super cheap cheap, it might be worth it, but it's not. get yourself a decent bittorrent client... and, oh, umm, errr... suffer the Chinese internet instead.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Donating clothes - where?

The Hump used to received clothing donations.

here's a story about it from a few years back:[...]

i think there's been some ownership changes within the Hump Group over the past few years, so there's a chance they no longer accept donations. i'd suggest heading to the guesthouse and asking the staff.

good luck - can you let us know how you get on?

Forums > Travel Yunnan > DALI DENTIST WARNING

ok, i'll bite... (sorry...) did everything just go all weird? what the cluck is the deal with the chickens? are good dentists in China as rare as hen's teeth? anyone care to let me in on the joke?


No results found.


didn't another musician injure themselves with boiling water one time on the way to perform in Kunming? Brain Failure was the band, i think. is Kunming just too dangerous a place to get to?

went along to see the exhibition this afternoon - not the most amazing photos - but the Thai/China cultural exchange angle is interesting, and if you're passing by, you might as well drop in - it's free :)



it was a little haphazard when i was there there other day after rolling in from East Bumblef$#k, Yunnan - no cold Bitburgers (but Beerlao was an acceptable replacement) and staff insisted on showing off their English, which ultimately proved not to be up to the task, rather than listen to my Chinese. wee bit on the pricey side too, especially given the competition up on Menglong Lu.


no-one's reviewed this place for nearly 3 years! i think i know why: it's solid. a bit boring maybe, but they get the job done: food on the table in good time, attentive staff, wide selection of items. the 'Prague Breakfast' is a fine feed, still good value after the recent price increase.


love the breakfast items. good coffee. superlative bread. great pommes frites. generally competent staff. cool atmosphere. jia you!

and, i remain grateful to French Cafe for keeping me alive over chunjie... :)


i really really want Ganesh to be good. we're limited in our choice of Indian restaurants in Kunming, and i'd love to see them all succeed.

but, meet me half way, guys. when my first question inquires if i can eat (i was there mid-afternoon) and the answer is yes, i don't expect to go through the arduous task of ordering only to be told that i'd have to wait 20 minutes for the chef to return from buying vegetables.

why was ordering arduous? "we should have it" is not an answer. don't serve other customers at the same time. write it down. don't run out of stuff that can be pre-prepared and stored, like samosas. and really, why's the chef buying veggies?


i joined friends here on the weekend. they were getting food and playing a game. the pizzas looked great, but my friends advised me to avoid them, saying they tasted bland.

having made a selection, it took 20 minutes for the staff to tell me that my choice was no longer available. as my friends had nearly finished their game, we then all took our business elsewhere.

helpful advice:

- if someone arrives, give them a menu

- sort out the beer selection

- if i speak to you in Chinese, speak back to me in Chinese
