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.



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.


It'd been awhile since I made it up that hill, but the climb to the top is worth it. Bamboo temple is still a great place to go for history, meeting random people and of course all of those absolutely amazing statues inside the main shrine.


Hadn't been here in years and was in the neighborhood. This place is always dependable and serves up some very nice versions of great local dishes. CHeap as chips too.


Pretty surprised no reviews in so long. It may be because everyone has come to expect consistency and class from this place. I have seldom seen a restaurant overseas that retains good employees for so long, which is a testament to management and teamwork.
The food is obviously one of the major consistencies too - good, solid standards and nice new takes on others. Still also a nice, early evening watering hole.

The fact that at least one of the owners is there the vast majority of the time, helping newcomers or oddly enough repairing computers, still amazes me.
