Forums > Travel Yunnan > Returning from Thailand

I see that Bram_ovic was returning from Chiang Rai.

That's a smaller city and probably doesn't have much in the way of virus cases (yet).
I'd like to hear also from people, if any, returning from Chiang Mai and Bangkok.

The majority of Thailand's virus cases are in Bangkok so that may prompt a greater likelihood of containment on return.

My wife has joined the local community group and gets constant updates from the local police liason officer.
Apparently if I had made the trip to Thailand as originally planned - without my wife, then on my return to Kunming I would be quarantined separately from her.
I have no idea how to confirm that fact.

It would be good to hear from people who have actually made the trip both ways between Kunming and Thailand

I would like to hear their experiences with:
1. Getting the health certificate
2. Quarantine on arrival in Thailand
3. Quarantine on return to Kunming.

I did notice last night that Kunming Airlines had cancelled yesterday's flight to Bangkok.

Here's a recent article regarding the new entry requirements to Thailand.

These were just announced the other day.

Health certificate requirement is noted, as is quarantine on arrival.
Airlines need to follow the rules strictly since it appears their aircraft can also be held for disinfection (at cost).

I expect China Eastern to start cutting back on scheduled flights any day now.[...]

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.
