Forums > Living in Kunming > teeth cleaning in kunming? should I?

I'm not sure where the Chinese health services get a bad name - I'm sure that it's not perfect, but it's not perfect in the west either.

I've had serious invasive surgery in Kunming and the quality of service was second-to-none. I think that the reason is that foreign patients receive the use of senior surgeons and, probably, the bad name is the result of Chinese nationals seeing interns. I've also had my teeth cleaned a few times without any complications. At 50 rmb a time, you should go every month!

Bottom line (Oh, this is the bottom line). You can't afford NOT to get your teeth cleaned.

This may seem obvious to some, but a useful piece of advice would be to ensure that the heater is thermostatically controlled.

If the apartment electrical fuses (contact breakers) are blowing you ought to check the rating - some apartment owners may use a lower rating to conserve energy.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Average Monthly Salary in Kunming?

Was there an interesting phrase in the above comment by 'jonny9', "If I was working right now, my budget would be 7,000 -with 2000 added for travel, savings, medical etc. thus 9,000." I'm sure that we eagerly await your next employment because, generally, we don't all work for international corporations.


No results found.


Mmm, would I be wrong in suggesting that if Tibet and Mongolia, etc., was an internal matter for China, then, what the French do in France must also be an internal matter?

Such contracts are totally unbelievable and doomed to failure.

There are insufficient pilots being schooled in the world as a whole and the Chinese situation is the worst. Current Chinese orders for new aircraft will quickly absorb the graduation of new pilots and the expected orders for the next few years makes the future pilot shortage quite critical -- actually, it's critcal now.

My advice to Chinese airlines is: Move into the 21st Century!

If anyone has tried to travel around this construction area during peak times (from 7:00 am to 10:00 am, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, and 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm) or the one-way triangle involving 121 Street, one can't help wondering at the qualifications of the 'designers'. It seems that they may simply have a graphic arts education and skills in accepting 'gifts' (from the traffic police).

I loved this quote: "He said that there was still work to do to convince Myanmar's ruling military junta that the dams would not be a problem for Myanmar, adding that he didn't think that would be a problem." I wonder if it should have been highlighted? Additionally, I wonder, does the UNESCO's World Heritage List serve a purpose? :(



Although not a review, permit me to address 'dianjing' and 'Ouyang'.

Surely, it would be better to obtain the visa prior to coming to China. Is it probable that your friend's problem was his and not the school's?

Rating, anything, on this Website without a review is useless ... at best.

My personal experience of KUST is their proverbial dislike of Foreign Experts.


Hello Dima; Many will welcome your arrival as the new manager. I hope that you will provide the cook with some assistance during peak hours. Some will be unhappy with the three-week closure, but you might tell them to visit Dan Di Cafe for a similar menu, if only temporarily.


I'm bound to ask if there is more than one Vintage Cafe in Kunming because the previous review seems to refer to a cafe that my colleagues and I are familiar with. Additionally, rating a cafe that is less than perfect, e.g., glass mugs, one would wonder how 'Jared' would rate the Green Lake Hotel, for example.

Please reserve the '5' rating for the best place in town . . . unless, of course, you're writing an advertisement.


Hey 'bucko', you must be fair, this restaurant is better than any place on Wen Lin Jie which you rated higher. Expensive? Try Green Lake Hotel. Small portions? Try Mazagran. It's all relative.


Although this is one of my favourite restaurants in Kunming, I find it necessary to warn the management that having a fourth floor extension has taken things one step too far (actually, about 70 steps!).

In my opinion, by extending the business, both the hard working kitchen and waiting staff are unable to maintain the original food quality and level of service.

A recent visit presented us with a luke warm fruit/mutton curry that comprised many pieces of fat and gristle, and a half tandoori chicken that had two legs (?) and not much else -- this dish would satisfy three people last year.
