Forums > Travel Yunnan > Airline Recommendation: Beijing to Kunming

It's worth making sure it's a direct flight. If you make a stop at some small airport and then weather shows up or the military decides to close some air corridors then delays and backups could have you stuck hours at some crap small town airport. If you have lounge access then the Air China lounge is worth considering as it's pretty nice as Beijing is the main hub of Air China.

Forums > Living in Kunming > How to get rid of mildew odor?

Just use a pitifully small amount of bleach, like 1/5 of what fits in the cap, in a full load of water, 40L+. Also, I'm using the washing bleach, not the disinfectant bathroom kind. The key is letting the water mix first, then add clothes, and then soak for a day. I've found this doesn't hurt my blue or reds at all. If you find the mildew smell lessened but still there, you know the bleach soak is working, so just keep at it, or add a tad more bleach or soak longer or both, depending on your patience.

I'm not sure if Metro still has it, but there was oxiclean there a long time ago. Have you tried a very small amount of bleach added to wash. Make sure to premix the bleach and detergent in a full water level, then drop in clothes and let it all soak for a day. This works with my smelly performance bike clothes.

Feels sad man. Sorry your thread is being polluted by some posters railing against tech. Can the rest of the community down vote the useless comments faster.

@terell. China is the home of traditional chinese medicine shops and Kunming is well known for them. Have you considered a blend of chinese herbs to help you sleep? To be honest I don't use TCM, but it can't hurt to try if your after herbal alternative remedies, being in Kunming and all.

Never gotten sick once at Sals. Their food is TexMex, so yeah, not authentic Mexican food, but pretty authentic as TexMex goes. Burrito wrap has improved a lot. Like the draft beer option now.

If you haven't had dairy products in a while, and do eat here, best forgo the sour cream. Nothing wrong with it, in fact it's the best sour cream in Kunming, but if you've eaten Chinese for month or months with no dairy intake, your system will react to sour cream or probably any liquid dairy product not so well. Maybe that's what happened with nailer and tallamerican.

Update:

It's now 5 working days for regular processing. So I submitted my application a bit before 5pm on a Friday and was told to pick it up next week Friday after 5pm.

Cost is now 400rmb for a single 30 day entry. Or that was what I was charged anyways. There are no posted prices and its cash only with no receipt except for your passport pickup. That's like $65 USD.

You can pay another 150rmb for 2 day or 100rmb for 3 day processing. For 400rmb, they should process it in three days like they used to before, but now you'd pay 500rmb. The office is still like deserted most of the time, so why does it take longer now and cost extra. If you opted for 2 day, thats like $90 usd. All other neighboring countries charge like $25usd.

The rest of and cope review is still good for hours and location.

Far out, less people. Big enough to get lost in. Pretty and quiet near dusk. 20yuan entrance fee.

Like everyone else says, best Indian food in Kunming. They have lunch plates and dinner plates. Show up before 1pm for lunch.

They are on the 4th floor of the half empty shopping mall. Best way is too take the elevator past the KFC around the corner from Starbucks.

Most individual dishes can feed only two hungry guys, so order more if you are starving. Naan order can take care of one only.

Five stars for the food. Go with Yereth's recommendations, plus any vegetable the waitress says is fresh.

Beware that Xue Fu lu is one way, so many taxis have to take a roundabout way to get here.
