Forums > Travel Yunnan > want to cycle?

I'm flying in to Kunming for Spring Festival, I live in Chongqing. I want to do some cycling while I'm there, maybe a 3 or 4-day trip. Do you have any suggestions? My bike skills: I'm from the Rocky Mountains in America, so they USED TO be pretty good, but I've been bikeless in bike-free Chongqing for the past 8 months, so unfortunately, I'm a bit out of shape. Is there somewhere near Kunming that would be cool to bike to or should I take a bus to Dali or somewhere first and go from there?

Lovely restaurant with top-notch service and fantastic food. I love all the beets, avocados, brussels sprouts, asparagus, quinoa, and tempeh. At first glance of their new menu I was overjoyed to see so much deliciousness, then nearly passed right out from elation when I noticed most of it is vegan! In all seriousness though I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Highly highly recommend!


Best pizza in town. Slice of Heaven's a close second, and a better value on their 20kuai pizza Fridays, but overall taste and selection goes to Lost Garden, hands down. I went there for the 3rd or 4th time for the pizza night last week. We sat on their roof terrace, which has been re-done very nicely since the last time I was there. The service was reasonable, and the waitresses even spoke some English! On a previous visit I had a pumpkin soup and a baked pasta, both delicious and well-presented. Anecdote: I was there once on a cold day a couple of months ago and the foreign manager (owner?) made my friend and I hot toddies upon request, even though they're not on the menu, and they were pretty much perfect. I have nothing negative to say about this place.
