    • tourist information? maps? walking tours?

      Shenyang Nov 9, 2014 at 7:16 AM

      Hi, I´ve been in Shenyang for a week (will be coming for short stays occasionally in the future) and have not been able to find a tourist information office. The two "offices" I found (Zhaoling tomb, Imperial Palace) did neither have english-speaking personnel nor apparently anything in the way of maps/brochures/advertisements or other information.
      I tried finding a bookstore not far from the Railway Station reportedly having a large selection of english books (hoping for a map of Shenyang) and again was out of luck (they may have moved?).
      I have checked the internet.
      I´m running out of ideas: How can I find a decent map of Shenyang? Is there any tour-operator doing guided tours of Shenyang or attractions in the surrounding area.
      Any help appreciated!

      What is the BEST city in the world for living (comparing Kunming, China)?

      by Goldwinde Online Now Dec 14, 2013 at 6:10 PM

      I am an American currently live in Kunming, China for four years now (for a total of 13 years in China). So, far it is the BEST city in the world for me to live in and I hope/expect to live here forever. However, if for some reason I can't stay here at some point (e.g. China won't issue me another visa), I want to have a backup city for me to move to. And I want to KNOW what my backup city is in advance.

      I have several criteria for my backup city (to try to match Kunming or better):
      1) Good weather year around (Kunming almost always gets up to 15 degrees (Celsius) each day in the winter and rarely goes above 30 degrees in the summer)

      2) Great prices compared to USA (it would cost me six times more to live in the USA given my current level of living here in Kunming: I have a 2700 square foot luxury apartment for $500 USD per month; my personal assistant works for me for less than $3 per hour, etc.)

      3) I would like to live in a city of 1,000,000 or more, although I might accept as low at 500,000.

      4) The residents of this city should have a friendly attitude towards Americans.

      These are my basic requirements. Do you know of any cities in your travels that might fit?

      With much appreciation...

      by sayem Online Now Aug 29, 2012 at 11:51 PM

      I'm planning a trip from Kunming to Lijiang by overnight train. I need some suggestion from you.

      1. Which overnight Train has VIP Chamber, since we, a couple, will visit with 3 yr kid (height is less than 95cm)
      a. K9606 (20:53 ~ 06:33)
      b. K9610 (21:58 ~ 07:10)
      c. K9614 (22:28 ~ 07:39)
      d. K9652 (23:55 ~ 10:12)

      2. I will start on 28th Oct 2012 from Kunming by overnight train. Is it possible to book the ticket from the website http://www.12306.cn/mormhweb/kyfw/ just now to ensure to get by anyone else with my name & passport number.

      3. How much it would take by a taxi from Kunming new airport to Train Station at around 19:30 and what will be the time to reach.

      4. Is there any alternative way (by bus) to reach Train Station from new airport? What is the route if we want to go by bus & what time it may take at the evening time?

      Thanks in advance for your great passions.
