I don't know about real time, other than CCTV9. But is pretty up to date.
As is

Both have video

Forums > Living in Kunming > Camera Shops in Kunming

There are no big chains that do bulk purchasing and pass on the discounts here.
There is BestBuy in China (not Kunming yet), but as they have no competition they are not passing on the savings.

There are also a lot of cameras for sale in the computer malls. But beware of fakes. I even saw a fake Cannon store in one city.

The camera shop on Beijing Lu near Ginko does have a reasonable selection of cameras. But there are lots of camera shops in every city.

Forums > Living in Kunming > HK/CM Visa run, how long?


I will be applying for a Z visa.

Am I correct in thinking that travel agent in KMG can do this, or is this a travel agent in HK?

Do I still have to physically leave China?

Sorry for asking dumb questions.


No results found.




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.
