Forums > Living in Kunming > Where can I see traditional sailing boats?

I remember about 10 years ago, in the morning you could see traditional wooden sailboats on Erhai that I presume were being used by the locals for fishing. I'm not sure if they're still around, because I think there is some kind of fishing ban in effect. At least, I haven't noticed the boats for some time.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Router Recommendations

I don't have any concrete evidence, but I feel that the Chinese ISPs might be doing something to cripple performance and reliability non compliant routers. At least, my POS free "Mercusys" brand router seems a hell of a lot more stable than my WRT-54Gs.

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.
