the luofengjie restaurant is great and has recently added 10 or so tables down the adjacent alley. nice alfresco atmosphere in a fairly quiet area.

@ baiyuxiang: i've been taking more and more 'black cabs' recently and have had little trouble. just make sure you agree to the price beforehand, which probably involves a bit of haggling, and then pay before you get going. you are happy with the price and they have their money and no conceivable reason to take the scenic route. it's not ideal to use these people, but in a pinch, it works.

maybe look at a camping store and see if they have a head lamp - one with an elastic band with the light resting on your forehead. not the most comfortable over a long trip, but handy. good luck.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > China tourist visa in Vientiane??

I'm wondering about this as well. Vientiane or Luang Prabang. I've heard there are 500rmb flights from Jinghong to Luang Prabang and I've also heard Americans can only get one month tourist visas. Any of this true?

Grumpy much? I do like DJs and especially people who do hip-hop and funk. Turntables and the associated equipment are simply new instruments and DJs compose in a different way. In my opinion, your talent comment is far off the mark. When you are talking about Djs and hip-hop, its hard to argue with one of the most globally influential cultural innovations of the past 40 years. It's not for everyone, but then again, nothing is.

@changkt: I very much agree with you. My sister hiked the AT in its entirety several years ago and now goes back for volunteer maintenance all the time. Having a trail system in Yunnan with that amount of dedication would be amazing. I hope it happens. Brice, 加油!

Don't know if Red Point is still going, but last year Kunming added a "6" to the beginning of all land line numbers. Try calling 63372350.



Beer is excellent, especially the pilsner and the IPA. The food is good as well and quite varied. Staff is attentive and having live music is a nice touch.


Smaller than I thought. Really small! Pizza and burgers were good, music selection was excellent, as was the beer selection. Four stars instead of five because we were literally the only people there.


The best place to see a huge variety of live music in Kunming without paying ridiculous prices? I'd say yes hands down. Good drinks and service too.


The team of nurses and general practitioners at the foreign clinic are helpful and considerate. Very professional while you are there face to face.

Three stars because of the follow-up once you've left the hospital. Maybe they're too busy. Wouldn't be surprising. But if you share your contact information and say "get in touch with questions or concerns any time", it's best to actually answer within 48 hours.


Walked in to watch (only watch!) one of the free Friday sparring sessions. Coaches came across as very professional and some of the boxers were from the national team, jsut stopping by to help out the amateurs. Cool vibe and an extremely clean and well put together facility.
