China Suburbia cover
The district was inhabited by Yunnanese, people from Kunming and people arriving from the neighboring provinces and countries, such as Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar. They took menial jobs to support themselves and their families and they lived in difficult conditions. Most of the population consisted of small artisans, shopkeepers, restaurateurs, hairdressers, construction workers, waiters, shop assistants, improvised pharmacists and doctors, masseuses and prostitutes.
Kunming, once known as the city of the Eternal Spring, now it’s experiencing an era of transition. Many people still live in old, ruined houses, awaiting for resettlement. This kind of situation happened many times in China. Every day, millions of square meters of old slums are torn down to make room for luxury condos and shopping malls. Although these neighborhoods are demolished, people try to lead a normal life. Urban villages, however, are notable for the affording economic opportunity to newcomers to the city and they are also among the liveliest areas in some cities.
