All you can eat Haagendaz, Wyndham gets my vote, but the intercontinental isn't really that much farther if you've gotten to Nanya.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Disposable chopsticks bad for nature

The disposable chopsticks are the least environmental bad thing associated with delivery. The amount of plastic containers is frightening. So figuring out what to do with those chopsticks is pretty minor, though personally I use them to apply glue or sealant or bike chain oil. Wouldn't advise letting a child have at them, they splinter sharply.

You'll get the disposable chopsticks regardless. Even in person doing take out, I ask them no chopsticks, but they still include, which I then just take out and put back in their pile. I try and bring my own container to keep down on the plastic, but that only works if I'm starting out from home.

Btw, I think the disposable chopsticks made from bamboo should be pretty much sustainable, not that you get a choice, some restaurants use them some don't.


No results found.


Too late for Angkor. Already consumed. Siem Riep never had much character before all the 5 stars showed up, so an even greater influx won't ruin the town. Of course, if a new airport means low cost carriers can fly there too, I'm all for it, after all, I just want a cheap seat!



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.



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.
