for the time to visit lijiang
By WANTWATER | 12/8/2007 11:08:54 AM

if you want to see the blue sky,the snow mountain ,the sunshine lijiang, the best time to come should be in November,December,Janurary,February and March. During these months,it is may be a bit cold in the morning and the evening, but you can enjoy nice weather every day. In daytime , you just stay in the Naxi guest house to enjoythe sunshine.What is more important, this is the slow season for lijiang, you can avoid the tourist crowd and see the quiet old town. And youcan also have nic e weather in some other part of yunnan

Tiger Leaping Gorge
By SLINKYSI | 11/30/2007 4:03:14 AM

Along the well know trek there are a number of guest houses, as usual some are better than others. The worst one of the lot was Halfway House where the staff managed to be impolite at every opportunity. On arrival they asked for money before we'd decided to stay and didn't consider a please or thank you necessary. After ordering an evening meal we asked for a fire to be lit in the dining room had our head bitten off as if we'd committed a crime, the fire eventually appeared but only with enough fuel to last 30 mins. Not only that but the food was not up to scratch either their soups are in fact water with whatever you order added as opposed to the usual chinese broth.
To avoid this GH it's quite an easy 10 minute walk to the next one adn 30 mins to the next. Otherwise stay at Tea Horse GH which has good food and is really at the halfway point.
The gorge however is excellent and worth every ounce of sweat as you walk up and along. The mountain scenery is fantastic and is one place in China where you really hike on a mountain and not walk up steps.

Moon Inn
By WARRINA | 8/18/2007 11:30:10 PM

Can highly recommend the Moon Inn. It's in a quiet location, the rooms are very clean and, best of all, you are extremely well looked after. Very friendly staff, who can't do enough for you. Free laundry, afternoon tea, help with bookings, etc. Hope to visit again one day.

World-Horti-Expo Garden
By WINDENERGY | 8/5/2007 8:50:09 PM

Some resort destinations in China are very commercial and unappealing. However, if you are looking for a first-class tourist destination where you can learn about Chinese culture and the native vegetation, then I highly recommend seeing the World Horti-Expo Garden in N.E. Kunming, China. There are "theme" gardens representing every province in China, as well as museums and international exhibits.

Higherland Inn, In Dali
By EDWARDADVENTURES | 7/28/2007 3:02:10 AM

If you want stay in Higherland Inn, you must up to the Cang Mountain.But you need pay for the entrance fee to enter the sinery area.Anyway, if you like quiet guesthouse and nice view.I think it is worth to stay 1 or 2 nights on the mountain, a lot of thing to see.

Treacherous Mountain roads.
By WINDENERGY | 6/6/2007 2:37:13 AM

I recently traveled round-trip from Weixin to Yibin on the bus. Much of the way was along dusty, rocky roads with major potholes and entire lane closures. There are also numerous other buses and blue coal-hauling trucks to beware of when coming and going.
The drivers are first rate and now I know why the Chinese drivers blow their horns so often. Along a one-lane, twisty mountain road this is the only way of telling on-coming traffic that you are there.
If you plan to travel via bus in northern Yunnan or southern Sichuan, bring along water, some spending money for buying snacks and a pillow and/or blanket to relax with. The busses stop frequently to pick up anybody that is waving them down.

Study in Kunming
By CALEB | 5/11/2007 4:02:23 AM

Summit Foreign Language School is an excellent study option for short term or long term mandarin study in Kunming. They can help extend or arrange visas and offer flexible and professional tuition and classes with qualified teachers who speak standard mandarin (hard to find in Yunnan from my experience!). They also have a really good location near wenlin jie. I definitely recommend them to any traveller or anyone wanting to while a way some time in beautiful Kunming!!!
