I had a friend who lived in Kunming once, which was the best he could do and still get a job. Some foreigners open cafes in Dali/Lijiang/Zhongdian.

I should really do another weekend trip to Lijiang or Zhongdian.

Come to Fuxian Lake and I'll take you sailing. 40 min from Kunming airport.


Kunming used to be much nicer, but is getting a lot of pollution these days. Dianxi lake used to be so nice...and now its just algae.


Agree. That's why I don't live there, just visit.


It is a shame really. Kunming could have been the SF of China.
