@Alien, very reasonable. Had x-rays, drilled out old teeth and because old fillings were very deep dentist packed teeth with antibiotic, temporary fillings for 4 weeks. When i had no discomfort she rebuilt both teeth. Total cost was less than 1,000 rmb.

Love my Dentists in Beichen area. Chen Fen Yuan speaks a little english at 18787478752 or Li Qing Xiang 15911740416. I had broke corners of 2 molars and they drilled out old fillings and repaired for a very reasonable price. Last summer bit into something hard and broke off part of their repair. They repaired like new and refused to take any money from me. I was in USA last summer visiting my family and had a free dental check up. My dentist was impressed with the quality of their work and they had not pushed me to do crowns.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Residence Permit - 2015 only

HFCAMPO, i was not happy when i found out my 2 year permit was one month short of 2 years. From Oct 15,2015 to Sept 15, 2017. Only reason i did physical was because i thought i could get a 3 year permit. Not sure worth the cost and pain of getting for only 2 years.


No results found.


If you like walking, best way to get to falls is just walking on very nice new parkway along the Panlong River. Just do not go on weekends or holidays. Also i went one evening for a walk thinking the falls would have lighting and it was dark. Sign 2 weeks ago gave hours for viewing falls from 9-5.



Metro has many things i cannot find other places, but i still find it a frustrating place to shop sometimes. Seem to frequently be out of things. For example their was very little fresh meat to choose from and actually they were out of many things and i was their just after lunch. They had no loaves of toasting bread and could not tell my wife when they would be getting more in. In looking at the fresh date on Hormel ham it had expired in September. However for first time i was able to shop all the aisles. Not filled with merchandise to be stocked or fork lifts.


Ate lunch today. Server was attentive. Food was good but a little slow in coming. Looking forward to eating dinner some evening and trying salad bar i have heard so much about.


To all those expecting an authentic Irish Pub come on we are after all living in China. I have eaten there several times and the burger is still the best in Kunming in my opinion. Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. Place is not perfect but what is in CHina. Owners have been wonderful in opening up early for special events like the US Super Bowl.


Went for Pizza special tonight. Had the Barbeque chicken and it was very good. Also enjoyed an exceptionally large order of French Fries. Everything was good tonight and owners where not there.


Wonderful place. Evening price is 88rmb which includes large salad buffet and they bring out skewers of the best beef i have had in China, also chicken, pork, sausages, goose, corn on cob to your table. They seem to slow down after 8 but before that constantly waiters bringing fresh meat and cut it onto your plate. Have eaten there 5 times in past 2 months and has always been excellent food and even better have never left with any stomach ills.
