Forums > Living in Kunming > Richland International Hospital?

I just got back from this hospital and I was very pleased. I showed up in the middle of the night throwing up uncontrollably and was helped immediately. They diagnosed me and brought me to a very nice room. Cozy, 120 channels and even a little attached bathroom. The place is super clean and I thought the staff was very helpful, although due to me showing up in the middle of the night there was no translators. I speak decent chinese so between that and the doctors using pleco on their phones we were able to communicate just fine. i was put on an IV. The following morning their translator was there and she was incredibly sweet and helpful as well. I would definitely recommend this place if you have anything you need. Its clean, friendly, modern, and in my opinion for all the crap I ended up deciding to do, very reasonably priced. Only thing is that I wish I couldve used my insurance as I am covered through it internationally, but the process was too complicated and i decided to just go the cash route. Also I was pleased about the fact that nothing unnecessary was asked of me. The doctor gave me his idea of what he thought was best and I confirmed whether I wanted to or not. No pressure at all there, just his advice.

Has anyone been to richland hospital recently? these reviews are all from two years ago and Im wondering if they've improved their service. I might need to go to a hospital today but Im really nervous theyll either misdiagnose me or push some tests/meds that aren't necessary.

Forums > Living in Kunming > A place to buy lizard food near Wenlinjie?

Hey all, my friend just gave me their pet lizard and hes awesome but now i dont know where to buy live insects to feed him. Im pretty positive hes a chinese water dragon so mealworms and crickets would probably be best for him. Ive seem them at shaocao actually, so I know theyre around, but where can I buy some?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Safe piercing studio?

Hey all,

I'm living near wenlinjie and want to know if anyone knows of a reliable and safe piercer that doesn't charge exorbitant prices. I just want to get my nose pierced and have been wanting to for awhile, but I am not going to entrust it to some idiot with a piercing gun. Sanitation is important with even a simple nose piercing. Any recommendations?

The numbers for these places really need to be updated. All of them are disconnected and Itd be really nice to be able to get delivery once in awhile.

There has been a few times that I have tried to get somewhere only a few kilometers away and ended up having to walk the entire way. Buying a car or ebike isn't practical for many people, especially expats here only for a few months. Its so frustrating when 4 or so empty cabs drive straight past you. They need to enforce the laws in place, and I agree with the idea of inspectors. Place them randomly around the city, you wouldn't even need very many of them. Even just a few might be enough to scare drivers into changing up shift times or to stop for people who are obviously trying to waive them down.

Just got back from this place. We paid for a cab out there because it had such good reviews, and to be honest we were a bit disappointed. We are huge indian food fanatics and have had a huge range of authentic indian, and this stuff seemed more like a chinese attempt at indian and for the price wasnt worth it. The naan was dry and so thin and brittle that it was more like crackers. The main dishes were medium sized, but were extremely watered down. The meat was coarse and tough to chew, and the vegetables were not thoroughly cooked. It also took us almost 50 minutes to get our food. their redeeming factor was their veggie samosas; they were delicious and very flavorful. Crunchy outside, soft inside. The staff was also very friendly. Overall, if I were to recommend an indian restaurant, i would recommend Cacaja on wenlinjie instead. We have been there 6+ times and found the food to always be very high quality, and the prices are exactly the same as Saramati. I suppose theres a chance they were training in all new cooks or something at saramati and thats why the food wasnt that good, who knows. I just know I was disappointed for having gone out there when I couldve gone to Cacaja instead, especially since we paid such high prices for low quality food.
