Thank you for pointing out about the two articles having dropped. They have been bumped back to the top while we look at alternative solutions.

Forums > Living in Kunming > New Coronavirus

***Wandering off topic***
I understand the desire to discuss tangential issues, and you are free to do that but please start a new thread, or add to the Keep Calm and Carry on Thread here[...]

It would be good to keep this thread focused on the Corona Virus, because it is such an important topic right now, and it is where many visitors to the forum will look first.

I am fine with your use of the word possible. People need to check their own situation for themselves. Because everything is new/irregular to everyone, including the PSB, nothing should be taken for granted we should recognize that everything is potentially open to change.

Personal note: People should check the current situation at the time when they need to act.


No results found.


That last comment was a bit unfair. There will be local officials who have to be seen there.

Think of this more as a conference, and trade event, with some public exhibits on the side, and less as an exhibition open to the public.



A reasonable choice of lumber that has improved over time. Fancy hardwoods like walnut, and mahogany are in abundance. There are some plywood and rubber-wood boards available. There are also some kiln dried imported softwoods and merbao available. Some of the lumber is very green, so look for the kiln dried if you need stable timbers.


Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.


In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.
