For the forecast, the number in a smaller font at the top indicates the forecasted highest temperature for the day. The number in the largest font is the current temperature and the number on the bottom is the forecasted low for the day.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Lijiang vs Shangri-la for long term

I think for me it would be a choice between a more urban place (Lijiang), with tons of Western and Chinese options for everything, and a place that is a bit more rural (Shangri-la) with fewer choices overall in terms of nightlife, food and drink, but also a more relaxed and less crowded day-to-day atmosphere.

Both have their upsides, and the outdoor options in both areas are fantastic.

So the Chinese government blacked out your internet while North Korea launched another missile?

My connection here in KM was perfectly fine. you must be quite important. Me? Much less so.

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.

I went here with a serious by not life threatening injury. I was well taken care of and given a sound diagnosis. At the time the doctor sent me to get an MRI scan. There was no wait adn the cost was less than a tenth what I would have paid back home.

A nice little bar in the Xiexin Tiandi mall (same place as the Turtles). Good cocktails, intentionally sparse decor and a charming owner. Music sometimes is pretty good. Prices are a bit high, but see their motto.

Recommended by a friend and when the weather turned wet and chilly I though it was time to try it out. This place is no frills, really just four walls, some tables and chairs and really good food. The people running the place know what they are doing in the kitchen and the level of customer service was fantastic.

If you are tired of Chongqing-style hotpot, check this place out.

Excellent service. The menu is limited but that's the point. My croissant was flaky, buttery and wonderful, while the Eggs Benedict couldn't have been better. Nice passion fruit juice to compliment everything. Well done.

Not a huge collection, but a good one. Very well-preserved frescos from more than 500 years ago. Interesting to see how Naxi, Tibetan, Bai and Han artistic traditions all mesh. Cool building housing everything too. Plus, there's a small collection devoted to Joseph Rock. Cool for history dorks like me.
