Most of the 919 buses stopped running a few months ago, but the other bus service are those gold buses.

Last I heard they were about 25 RMB. Can anyone confirm that?

I've seen them at the exit from the arrivals lounge at 4:00 a.m. so they must run all night.

I still have no idea about routes, schedules and pickup/dropoff locations.

If anyone knows a link to a website for their service it would be helpful.

I've had similar yet different experiences.

My VPN has a window that shows where my current connection is, so when the VPN itself is not connected I expect it to show Kunming, however, I've had it come up showing other cities as well, as far away as Xiamen.

Also, there is one website I connect to and need to login.

It keeps giving me messages that it doesn't recognize my device because the ip address has changed since I last logged in, and this can be without shutting down the computer.

I suspect the problem with connection is somehow related to the ISP rather than the individual site such as GoKunming.

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.
