Hi everyone,
I want to exchange RMB into euros. I've been to the main Bank of China office in Chenggong (春融街 Chunrong Jie) and they have said that I can only change 500 usd/euros per day, otherwise I should go with a Chinese friend and should call in advance to check that they have euros available.

I want to get something between 2000-3000 euros and I've read a couple of interesting threads:[...]
So it seems that there are two main places to do it
1-The main Bank of China office in 人民中路 (Renmingzhong Lu) and 北京路 (Beijing Lu), Metro 交三桥 (Jiaosanqiao)
2-The ladies near the Bank of China office near 东风西路 (Dongfeng Xilu)

So I have a couple of questions:
¿Is there any way to exchange more that 500 euros in any Bank of China in Kunming without going with a Chinese friend?
¿How reliable are the ladies changing money in the street?



No results found.




I've known their food for a while and it's always been excellent! (great for vegetarians). Had the chance to stay there for the weekend and it was perfect. Friendly and helpful staff, great location, clean and comfy rooms!
