Forums > Living in Kunming > Personal trainer wanted

I want to get back into some sort of shape after a long period of inactivity but need some help to do it. Anyone with some semi/professional experience out there to help me set up a plan and accompany me a bit on it? Let me know and we can discuss details.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Any techies? KM Net speed

Just wondering about internet speeds in KM. Although they have improved from a year or two ago, still seem a bit slow sometimes, especially uploading. I seem to have max rates of about 1.6Mbps/0.2Mbps (DL/UL) or 200kBps/30kBps (hope I have those units right). Are those about average and is there any way to improve them or are they fixed by CT/cable capacity/whatever? Any advice appreciated.

Actually it's no problem, I did it earlier this year. Yes, need to send everything to a friend to submit, but they will send p/p back by EMS directly. All details are very clear at www.vfs-india.com.cn/ and I see they've just started an office in Guangzhou too.

Today the weather is completely fine, yet a friend who's flying was told first that her flight was fine, checked her luggage, now the flight is delayed, possibly cancelled, no real info, angry and confused masses, a general mess. How about spending 10% less on fancy infrastructure and putting that money towards improving staff training and management systems?

A great shame! The Box will be deeply missed and leave a big gap. Kunming will be a lot poorer as a result. Thanks for all the good times!

Good article, but where is the new clothing market in KM, along the lines of Beijing's Silk or Yashou markets, where you can buy 'branded' goods in western sizes?

Sadly another place 'gone'. It's still there but under new management. There is a completely new menu, all chinese, mainly drinks, with just a few snack items. Gone are all the great sandwiches and salads they used to make. Pity, this place provided a good sometime alternative on Wenlin Jie.

Best Sunday brunch experience in Kunming! A great selection of just the right type of food which goes down very well the morning after a heavy night. Jeroen is making dishes that not only taste great but are also very easy on the eyes. Add to that David's awesome Bloody Marys and the lovely rooftop terrace and you can't go wrong. True, things can be a bit hectic in the kitchen if it's busy, but be patient and you'll be well rewarded.

Good food and very nice atmosphere (if a bit cold at this time of year). Just stay away from the mixed starters: cold, soggy mushrooms, aubergine, etc. Everything else is great and there's a good wine selection, including per glass.

A slog to get to but worth it. Great authentic Thai food in an elegant and cozy atmosphere with friendly service and fantastic city view. A bit pricey but good value for money.

Nice quiet conversation place with plushy sofas, big windows and good selection of coffees and milk teas, if a bit pricey. Food is also good.
