Forums > Travel Yunnan > Are turnaround visa runs possible at the China-Vietnam border in Hekou?

Given the mix of info about Vietnam and Laos in this thread, just in case anyone's confused:

Mohan-Boten is the border crossing from Yunnan into Laos
Hekou-Lao Cai is the border crossing from Yunnan into Vietnam

Vietnam also has a border crossing with China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region (bus and train options exist out of Nanning)

Forums > Living in Kunming > copying Gokunming??

There's no cooperation between the sites.

Why would people copy classifieds? To look like they have an established audience. To hit search engine terms of relevance without having to think them up themselves.

Yes, tacky. Note that they're only (usefully) able to do it with ads that have contact info in, as they're not able to copy the 'Respond' loop which sends responses to GoKunming user email addresses, which remain hidden. We advise against putting contact details in ads to defend against spam bots, but people do it anyway.

Also, on GoKunming, when you've sold your bike, you can go in and pull the ad down. But the calls will keep coming from copycat sites... that's if they actually do have any audience.

Regarding giving better notice of local events: we'd love to.

However, we are a team of limited resources and more comprehensive events listings would require event organisers to reach out to provide us with information of their plans.

Regarding national football specifically, we heard recently that a plan was afoot to rebuild and relaunch the China Football Association website, in part to provide a convenient and comprehensive place to access fixture information. Some months have passed, and we've yet to find the new site.

The old site lists the fixture dates in a news post here www.fa.org.cn/news/china/2011-08-01/358238.html (Chinese only.) Unfortunately, there's no mention of match venues.

If you are organising, or know of, events that you'd like to see listed in the GoKunming calendar, please let us know via our contact form. We typically need the following info: location; short description of the event; date; time; entry fee (if any).

Thanks for the input, Philippe.

The old search box (which was a listings-only search) can now be found on the listings page for a given city (default is Kunming). A site-wide search has been suggested for the mobile version before, and sounds like a good idea. I'll get it built.

As for events, yes, homepage/top seems sensible, like on the old mobile site. I'm concerned about the growing length of the mobile homepage - perhaps I'll drop the 'Archive' section when I reinstate 'Events'.

Further input/criticism/suggestions are always welcome.
