Travel Tips for Kunming

Fruit flavoured (firm) jelly dessert

by hooiluangoh

Suddenly these stalls spring up like mushrooms after the rain.

Many flavours are available.

The jelly is kept in an earthern bowl, which are stacked face to face with the next bowl to keep them clean. This offers an interesting scene.

RMB 0.50 each. If you want it, a stick is used to take it out of the bowl and also serves as a skewer for you. The owner really posed for me when I asked if I could take a photo.

Nai3 Gu3 Stone Forest

by FreeCloud

Later.

On our train from Kunming to the usual destined Big Stone Forest, some local tour guides on the train tried to sell some packaged tour with 2 options:
Both with a tour in the extremely touristy (not know until we got there) PLUS

a) Nai3 Gu3 Store Forest; or
b) a water fall area

Comparing the info given, we decided to take the package with Nai3 Gu3 Stone Forest. We were so glad that we picked this tour.

Our suggestion, if you do not want to waste your time, take the train to Stone Forest stop, then find someway (mini bus or whatever) go straight to Nai Gu Stone Forest, you will NOT miss anything by not bothering with the usual touristy Big Stone Forest.

Tourist train from Kunming to Shilin/Stone Forest: #K440, dept 9:46 then return from Stone Forest at 16:26, RMB 40/round trip ticket. Clean with A/C, very comfortable. The scenery along the way is very beautiful.

Facing the SOUTH/Main Kunming train station, turn to left, a small alley with a big green door is designated for this particular tourist train. You can either buy ticket here or from your hotel (with a RMB 10/ticket service charge as they deliver the ticke to your hotel).

Details later.

The most useless tourist service on the planet

by mke1963

The "Tourism Service" desk at the arrival level of Kunming Airport is worth visiting to experience how poor customer service can get in this day and age.
One particular woman (always at the central desk, not the one by the elevators) is outstandingly rude, arrogant and unhelpful.
Whether you speak Chinese or not, she will bark "Mei You Yingwen" at you, because she simply doesn't listen and assumes you are speaking English.
Try taking some of the hotel brochures from her. She will reach over and snatch them back. She refuses to let you look at the map. She is an absolute disgrace. I have passed through Kunming Airport five times in the last month and she has been outstandingly unhelpful on three of those occasions. I try to see the best side of everyone, but this woman has no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

Japanese food in a little cosy restaurant

by hooiluangoh about Ming Chi Wu

This is a very new restaurant (Oct 2003).

The deco uses heavy timber and glazed stone tiles. It is very intricately decorated and gives off the traditional japanese flavour. Don't worry, you get to sit on proper timber bench.

It has a ground floor and a mezzanine. The lunch set (RMB 38) is worth a try. This is a big array of different japanese dishes (with rice). Interestingly, it also serves chinese dishes (which is nothing special). Signature japanese items are sashimi, tenpura, grilled fish and fried chicken.

World Horti-Expo Garden

by srd130

I visited the World Horti-Expo Garden in August 2003 and was very impressed. The Garden was created for an international expo in 1999.

The garden is quite amazing in its contents and selection, and is kept in immaculate condition. It shows the dedication of the Communist leadership to deliver world-class events and sites.

The only bad part is the price. I paid 50 yuan for a student discounted ticket, so the regular price will be between 80 and 100. It is expensive, but in my opinion it is truly worth the price.

The garden has many exhibits, but two worth noting are the international gardens and chinese gardens. There is a park of gardens for about 40 countries - each garden including a building and typical elements of that country's garden. For instance there are Japanese, Thai, Palestinian, and American gardens to name a few. When you walk through this park, it is like a tour of the world as there are buildings typical of the national architecture.

Also there is a park with Chinese gardens, one for each province, including Hongkong and Macau gardens which are interesting because those two gardens have the British and Portugese influence. In the photo here, I am in the Inner Mongolia Province garden, complete with Mongolian script and buildings.

If you don't mind spending the 100 yuan, this is a great thing to visit in Kunming.
