Travel Tips for Kunming
All kinds of chinese magazines and newspapers are available.
One thing about newspapers here is it is not like what we are familiar with at home, ie a newspaper with various sections: sports, movies, local news, international etc.
Over here, there is a paper for the sole purpose of TV programmes, for there are tens of TV programs available on TV.
And a special paper for PCs, another for sports. They sell Chinese national geographics. About RMB 14 I think. This is a great magazine to read (if you read chinese) and the photos are superb.
The Zhongdian County was renamed Shangri-La in early 2002. Surrounded by Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet, it is the highest point in Yunnan Province. It is a place of natural beauty with mineral lakes and snow-capped mountains. One can see easily see why it is deserving of the name "Shangri-La" from the English novel "The Lost Horizon".
The MOST EXPENSIVE shopping venue
One often wonders where the rich shop. Well THIS is the place.
Internationally well-known brands: Swatch, Cerrutti, Cartier, Hermes, Lancome, Mont Blanc, Longines, Omega, Chanel are all to be found here.
Price - EXpensive. Typical departmental Store. hundreds of RMB to start with.
Authentic Japanese at Harbour Plaza Hotel
This a high-class japanese deco restaurant. Five-star ratings. There are also teppanyaki rooms available. In the main dining hall, you find a giant round aquarium which houses goldfish. The trick to this is the aquarium itself is only about 6 inches thick and thus hollow in the middle. It's a beautiful view nonetheless. Sashimi set lunch. RMB110 + 15%. It is a large serving, and absolutely worth the money.
This includes salmon, fatty tuna, octopus, and various other seafood.
Stone Forest (Shilin)
About 120 km south-east of Kunming. Take one of the mini buses from Kunming's long distance bus station for RMB 15 (one way). Ride takes approximately an hour++, but be prepared for detours to tourist traps cum toilet stops and temples, whilst putting up with rude & obnoxious bus drivers, and people who argue a lot :).
Entry Fee to Stone Forest = RMB 80 (rip-off in my opinion).
Rating = 3.5 out of 5
