You can buy the machine online (Nespresso China website, it can be in English), you can also order capsules that way and they arrive in 2 days. They also do capsule recycling.

La Boulange is à French bakery that is preparing them this year. But I think you need to order in advance.
You can probably find their listing on this website.

Yeah we don't have much vegetarian options, although we've expanded with chinese snacks (many without meat) and in the new bar on Dongfengdong lu we now have chinese lunch sets. Will keep it in mind for any future events ; buffet or BBQ to have some vegetarian choices :)

Yeah I think they must have got their numbers way wrong haha...
Was in Tianjin a few weeks's way ahead of Kunming in everything and a lot more expats than even Shenzhen.
You can even download an expat PDF for their TEDA district (just 1 district) explaining where the restaurants, bars, hospitals and schools are (everyone of them is international standards).
So I believe Kunming is growing and I definitely agree with the fact that more and more Chinese are coming here, but it probably ranks bottom of a top 10.
Unless you count all the Thai and Vietnamese in Kunming (which are also expats right?^^), then it all makes sense.

Sorry to hear about all this guys and loved your bar! Used to hang out there pretty much everytime i had a night off for some beers!
I wish you the best of luck for the future!
Will definitely miss The Box!



Max and his company have been helping me with my company here in Kunming for the past 4 years.
I have never had to worry about Visa's, licences or any other government related issues since.
Max also takes care of all our accounting and tax.
I highly recommend his services.
Not only this but he has become a good friend that won't hesitate to help a lost foreigner in times of need!!


Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your support, it is still the beginning and we are trying to get everything right as fast as possible.

I'm posting to let you guys know our internet site is under construction and until it is ready i cannot post ALL of our "Live" sports games on GoKunming (this will flood the event forums...haha).

As some of you have already done, please contact me via GoKunming if there are games you are interested in, i'll let you know if we show them. Or i can add them to our events.

Thank you!
