Let's not, because that's a different question: different hospitals, different prices, changing policies etc. Please feel free to make a new thread about questions concerning Covid-19 tests and related health certificates.
I specifically want to know about the usual health check for a work permit, which is done in the international travel health centre on Guangfu Lu.
Anyhow I'm going there now and will let you know if you can get it without showing your original passport.
Does anyone know if you need to bring your original passport for the health check?
(The 'regular' work permit health check that is, not the Covid-19 health certificate).
Right now I only have a picture of my passport and I'm pressed for time, so I'm hoping that that is enough for the health check.
No results found.
Disclaimer: manager/chef/decorator Pat & Sarah are my friends. Apart from running a lovely and affordable guesthouse, they are also working insanely hard at serving delicious tacos and cocktails and more home-cooked goodness, organising community events at all hours (from craft markets to USA sports events to film nights to debates). The rooftop is a sunny roost where you can often find Kunmings finest chatting an afternoon or evening away. Thanks for creating this wonderful place Pat & Sarah! You're superstars.
During my last trip to Lijiang I joined Carol, the lovely Singaporean owner of Jayden Lodge, for a Kundalini yoga class. The traditional wooden and stone guesthouse and yoga studio are grouped around a small and quiet courtyard, right at the edge of Shuhe and the hills, so it's very quiet and peaceful. Carol and her husband and small son live here too so it's bit like a homestay. There are only a few spacious rooms for guests. Carol and her husband are excellent hosts, serving breakfast, coffee and tea in the courtyard. They also organize small group tours around Yunnan.
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.
