After spending a year nomad working and coworking in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pai, Beijing and Jinghong (Xishuangbanna), we made it back south to Kunming. It was a bit of a unfortunate timing to move here right on Spring festival, when the whole country of China migrates and shuts down business for a two week break.
As far we know, there is no coworking spaces in Kunming, yet. There are a few marked as coworking spots on Foursquare, but I highly doubt they are legit.
So far we’ve been working at the rooftop of the Lost Garden Hostel right at the Green Lake, where we happen to also sleep. The internet is most of the time good, for China’s standards of course; download speed 2.5 Mbps, upload 1 Mbps.
When I am not at Lost Garden, I am at the French Cafe, conveniently located on Wenlin Jie, aka the western street. Equipped with plenty power outlets, decent internet (which embarrassingly happened to be 0.26/0.28 at the time of this visit), delicious coffee and pastries, it’s a great spot to work from.
Are there any digital nomads in Kunming? Let’s get together!
