Where I stayed
Grand Park Hotel

Flag of China  , Yunnan,
Friday, December 17, 2010

That day I woke up at 6 a.m. because it is needed to be on time at the Ferry Terminal before 7:30 a.m. The ferry departed at 8:30 a.m., and it took forty five minutes to arrive at Hong Kong International Airport (also known as "Chek Lap Kok Airport"). The flight duration from Hong Kong to Kunming it takes only 2 hours and 30 minutes. CX6720 or KA760 was the flight I and K. were in. The flight took off at 12:00 and at 14:30 we arrived at Kunming Wujiaba International Airport.

As we passed through the customs, a man approached us and said to offer us transportation. I remembered what my uncle and my coworker had told me about those kind of "approachers". We should better ignore them or we end up paying them more than the usual price. So, we ignored that man and looked for taxi station.

The taxi station is not located far away, it s just situated right in front of the Domestic Flights Entrance. There is always an airport policeman guarding this area. If someone sneaks in the queuing line, he will be sent back behind and will be scolded in front of the public.

The hotel where we stayed overnight was Grand Park Hotel (昆明君樂酒店), 7 km away from the airport. The time where we took a taxi it was within rush hours, so we could only arrived at the hotel after forty five minutes of ride. Taxi fee was only $31RMB.

After we checked-in, we walked around Green Lake (翠湖公園). The Green Lake Park is surrounded by a ring road and along the edge of that are tea houses, restaurants and shops. During the time when we were there, we saw many black headed gulls on the lake. It said that they were from Siberia, and during winter, they all migrated to Green Lake.
