I'm in a non-tourist city about 40km south of Kunming, Yunnan, China.
For the first time in China I have a hotel with good Wi-Fi but I also like to be able to sit in a pleasant public place surrounded by local sights and sounds while I pursue my online activities.
There are "Internet Bars" which are just huge rooms filled with desktop computers, all inside and with no atmosphere. I'm not looking for these.
In cities further south I found a chain called "Tea Story", some of which had free Wi-Fi and electric outlets.
I'd prefer a place away from the big dusty main roads, but the other main roads are fine. Inside a mall is fine. Hidden in a maze-like shopping area is fine. Perhaps near a school or university? I personally need a place where I can plug in my power supply since my battery no longer holds more than a ten minute charge. But that might not be an issue for other travellers who come here.
