Panlong District stretches from Kunming’s downtown area to the city’s northern ring road. Recent boundary changes to accommodate the city’s rapid growth have left the district with a population of around 700,000 people (as of 2006). Slightly more than half of them are permanent residents; 160,000 are rural migrants registered with the authorities as temporary residents, and a further 160,000 or so are ‘floating’ migrants with no formal registration in the locality. The migrants come from Yunnan's rural areas, as well as from Sichuan, Jiangsu, Hebei, Xinjiang and Guizhou.
