Forums > Living in Kunming > New MRT Line 4 Opening

I think the extension of line 6 from the east bus station to Beijing Lu may soon be completed as well.

Work along Tuodong Lu looks near completion.

You're so right.

This city does need more subway lines.

Line 5 is still under construction and I've heard that more have been approved.

I have to think back on what's happened in the last 10 years.

While Kunming has built and opened 5 lines, back in Toronto where I came from they've been talking about more lines for 10 years with nothing being done.

Kunming has made a lot of progress in a relatively short time.

Forums > Living in Kunming > New Health check form at bus/metro

When I was entering the subway on Saturday I noticed the police officer at the entrance getting ready with a pen to record my information on a log sheet at her desk. When I showed the green screen she nodded and put the pen down.
In the early days of the virus there were also people on buses taking info from the seniors who did not have smart phones.

I get BOC online banking in English, but it only works (at the moment) on IE, which is no longer supported by Microsoft.

If the OP is referring to a mobile app I can well imagine it being Chinese only.

What I find more disturbing now with BOC is that they are now installing so many "Intelligent ATMs" in the branch and doing away with people.

Unlike the old ATMs, the new ones do not have an English option, and for some reason are all within the branch, while old machines in the 7/24 service area are often out of service.

It's still being used at the subway and PSB.

I used/visited both yesterday and you could not get in without scanning right in front of them.

I noticed the bus also has the new QR code on the entrance door but nobody scans it.

When I walk the dog each morning I pass our community health clinic where they have the QR code out front.

I make a point of scanning it to be sure I'm still current.

It seems to want an update every 2 weeks or so.

Had my first ever visit to Slice of Heaven last night for a group party. Barbara recognized me as a newcomer and immediately came to welcome me and introduce herself.

While speaking with her at the counter, a server walked past with a pizza for one table. The aroma immediately caught my attention. It was awesome.

Our group shared 4 different pizzas. All were amazing. I think the sauce really makes the difference since it was very flavourful. I also put back to cups of cappuccino. I guess they must have fixed problems noted in other reviews because I found it to be quite good.

If I lived closer I would be a regular here.


After 14 months in Kunming I've finally found a restaurant that knows how to cook a steak! The last time I had a decent steak was a year ago in Chang Sha.

We found My Favor because of the ad here on Go Kunming. I was not disappointed. The restaurant if very much "upscale", sharing the 6th floor of the Brilliant Plaza with other restaurants that it's Chinese, Japanese and Korean equals, so we've found a great place to go for special occasions.

Being non-smokers we really appreciated the separate no smoking room. The decor is quite elegant and the entire place is spotlessly clean (even polished where it should be).

We were given separate menus for food, beverages and deserts. There was enough selection to satisfy anybody but not so overwhelming that you couldn't decide what to have. The price range was also varied, ranging from modest to a lot.

I chose my always favorite beef tenderloin. Although the menu didn't state it, the dish was served with a choice of the five soups that were offered. My wife stuck with the pasta (she's a noodle nut).

The only downside came in the timing. Our soups arrived together, but my wife had finished her main course before mine arrived.

The serving staff did not hover over us but were quickly available when we wanted something, however, we were the only customers so I can't comment on what service might be like at busy times.

Overall I was very satisfied and might make this a place for a once a month treat.
