The WiFi is only available if you have a Chinese mobile! So good luck. I finally found a café next to the departure gates (Gate 70) that offers real WiFi. The airport lacks of services to cater foreigners. Very nice airport, but poorly served, especially in English. The information booth was ... Details

We stayed there for a full week in March 2011. It is a very short walk to the train sta. and the bus terminal. Right now a subway is being constructed on the road in front of the hotel, so there is noise and dirty air. Because of this, it would be best to get a room on the back side of the hotel. ... Details

What surprised me first when we arrived at Kunming was the airport is so near to the urban area that it only took about 10 minutes for us to get to the downtown ... Details

I agreed at almost the last moment to fly down to Kunming to meet two friends for a break from the frozen north. They were on a long winter holiday trek through Yunnan, I just needed a break, but I didn't want to be on the road much longer than a week. Just needed time and space to clear my head, that's ...

When the icy fingers of Winter whip the last leaves from the trees and the world turns bare and brown, nothing assuages the eyes and soul more than a trip to the City of Eternal Spring. Migrating south to find a hint of color and the soft touch of sunshine promises refuge and respite from the dreariness ... Details

Kunming. My friend Daniel and I flew into Kunming after a few relaxing days in Hainan during the last half of Spring Festival last year. We'd heard that it was Spring City and were looking forward to a few more mild days before going back to the snow in Hebei. We'd booked a night in a hotel online with ... Details
