Forums > Living in Kunming > Stop buying animals you can't take care of.

Well, rightly said by many actually it has become a fashion or the fade for the students to keep the pets in the University dormitories.
But the,aim issue is looking after these pets & as a foreign Expert I had observed that students whether Chinese or the Foreign students are unable to keep these pets in the proper environment.
I still remember the Dorm staff caught one South Asian students having a puppy as a pet in his dorm and finally he has to give that puppy to the lady owner of the Departmental store in the campus.
Pets are wonderful but they should not be a nuisance for the owner or the neighbor

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Driver's license : An Enigma

A new regulation has made it more difficult for residents to travel to South Korea to obtain a driver's license - which is easier, cheaper and less time-consuming than getting one in Shanghai - and then exchange it for a local equivalent.
One agent, said she provides a five-day specialized trip to South Korea that consists of instruction, practical driver's training and driving tests at a cost of 7,000 yuan ($1,130).

Forums > Travel Yunnan > How to get to Shilin?

This world is full of weird people and cheaters, there's nothing new about that?
One just can't generalize that it happens in South East Asia or any other European country.
It depends on circumstances and the smartness of a Tourist.
Fortunately I had NO such problems traveling lot of places all around China for 5+ years.
Whether its sheer luck or smartness,you can decide ...!!

Recent excavations at the site have brought to light a large number of palatial complexes and basements of several platforms. Interesting finds include a large number of stone images, both in round and relief, beautiful terracotta objects and stucco figures that once embellished the palaces. In addition many gold and copper coins, household utensils, a square stepped-tank (sarovara) at the south-west of Mahanavami Dibba, and a large number of ceramics including the important variety of porcelain and inscribed Buddhist sculptures of 2nd -3rd century AD have also been unearthed.

Wujiaba airport is a many stories are linked with this place.

Well it cant be easily written off, given the importance of this airport which was used extensively during World war-II

Many veteran RAF officers are nostalgic about this place.....

Its matter of discussion about the usefulness & I am sure something concrete will come out.

Its a good piece of news since this Museum will show the Yunnan culture elaborately & the visitors will be benefited much from it.
Wish a gr8 success ahead !!

Its really nice to read any article about Yunnan & its historical cities, I had spent more than 3 years working in Kunming and Dali and by reading all these articles I feel because of massive industrializations, over use of infrastructure there's a huge loss of flora & fauna.
The weather had now changed its course, it gets more warmer in summer & more colder in winter.
Kunming is worst effected, what I saw Kunming in 2008-9 is totally changed,the atmosphere is embedded more dust & smoke particles making it difficult to breathe during the peak hours of the day.
But I really appreciate the steps taken by the local administration to make the surroundings clean & green.

I just feel that Kunming which is regarded as the spring city, should not change it to another METRO city like Guangzhou where one gets lost in the sea of people & cars.
