Forums > Living in Kunming > Historical property price index

If you use anjuke, you can see the last 3 years worth of data. I would guess prices are up about 50% over the last 4 years. Prices in Kunming have been rising much slower than other Chinese capital cities though.

Forums > Living in Kunming > living in Dali and alternatives

I would hardly call Dali Old Town overdeveloped, unless of course you are talking about the tourism industry. It's quite backwards in most other regards.

The best way I could describe it is you get all of the inconvenience of living in a big city (noise, traffic jams, high cost of living) with few of the ammenities (reliable power and water, access to schools and hospitals, shopping, skilled workers etc).

I was going to post a similar topic last week, but didn't because usually such questions don't get very good answers. This is largely because the information is generally not available to the public. The last I heard was that the rail link would be open by the end of 2019. Do you have a source for the 28th?

Isn't the government trying to shift away from dirty coal powered plants, to embrace "cleaner" energy like hydro, nuclear and natural gas? Considering over 70% of their electricity comes from coal, I really don't understand how you can have too much hydro. Is the energy source too far away from the demand?

Xiefei, of course the system is designed to be able better monitor everyone's movements, not just foreigners. Everyone knows you can easily be tracked with your phone. Now there is yet another tool to keep better tabs on you. I won't be putting one on my bike, thanks.

I was just taking a cheap shot at those abusing student and travel visas.

I just found this article today:

Now the opening date has been pushed back to late 2017 or early 2018.

I like how in the original gokunming article it stated "No cost estimates for the project were provided." That certainly turned out to be a major issue with regards to meeting the 2-3 year completion target. I guess I can't say I'm surprised considering Yunnan is known for poor work ethic and corrupt civil servants.

As far as I can tell, Erhai is getting worse...at least the shoreline, mostly due to tourists throwing garbage into the lake, and lakefront hotels dumping in untreated sewage. I'm super depressed about the environmental situation in Dali, especially the air quality.
