My to-read pile is now about a meter high... last great book I finished was the River of Lost Footsteps by Thant Myint-U, a thorough but concise history and explanation of the current situation in Myanmar.

Forums > Living in Kunming > (sports) physiotherapy

Does anyone know of an English speaking (sports) physiotherapist? I heard that there is a dedicated physiotherapy hospital in Kunmming with English speaking specialists but can't find the details.

I'm doing a fair bit of exercise and have an old foot injury (fractured metatarsal and torn ligaments) that is playing up again. A sports therapist would probably be best.

Thanks!

Hi, does anyone have recent experience with extending a tourist visa in Kunming? How long does it take? It's a Dutch tourist visa, given by the Chinese embassy in the Netherlands. Thanks!

Yes that's not cool. I was a blood donor in my home country so I knew already. What I didn't know was that it is so rare here. You might want to have it checked again @Dude

Hi @kc430 I always have a few reusable bottles with me that fit in the bottle holders on my frame or I stick them under the bungee traps at the back. I try not to buy bottled water for the plastic waste but fill up whenever I can at restaurants etc. Next to that I have a UV water purifier so I can drink water from streams if need be, but this is hardly an issue in China since there are villages and towns everywhere where you can fill up.

I went for an old ankle/foot injury that was playing up. The problem was thoroughly checked with ultrasound. I got a good diagnosis, advice regarding exercise and stretching and a plan for treatment, a combination of high-tech and TCM. It's not cheap but well worth it. Very friendly and great translation service too.

This is a special place! A bit hard to find since it's tucked away in an upper floor of a shopping mall, but well worth it for the amazing food. The focus is on quality, health and well-being and the extensive organic menu has something for everyone, including juices, good coffee, a lot of vegetarian and gluten free options. Nicole (one of the owners) is a wonderful host, she speaks English and is happy to talk about the philosophy behind the menu.

Hands down the best bike shop in town.

They are experts at repairs and usually do it on the spot. They have helped out a lot of my bike touring friends who would arrive without notice and were good to go in no time.

They are super friendly and organize weekly bike rides.

They also sell all kinds of good brand bikes: kids, touring, MTB, road. Also very well stocked for high quality accessories, tools, spare parts and bike clothes.

Not the cheapest but well worth it as they always do a great job.

Love the outdoor seating area under the trees. Good food and drinks, good discounts on Wednesdays and Fridays, super friendly service, generally a nice vibe and I especially appreciate their efforts to cater to gluten free customers.

Interesting museum, with lots of displays explaining about the history of the Tea Horse Road. There are explanations in English. Well worth a visit to understand more of the history of Yunnan.
