It is about 25-30 km from the train station to Changshui airport. I suggest you take a taxi to the airport. It takes about 1 hour and it costs CNY100/US$16 per car. If your train won't delay, you will arrive at the airport around 6:30am-7:00am, you have enough time to check in. Lussie Lu Replied on 04:39 AM Aug. 28 2012
You could store your luggage at the railway station. They provide this service. The cost is not expensive, it is around CNY2-3/US$0.3-0.5 for one piece of baggage. In general, it is safe to leave your luggage there, but i suggest you take the important things with you. Lussie Lu Replied on 02:33 AM Aug. 17 2012
I regret that we don't provide train tickets booking separately. If you could book a tour with us, we can book it for you. Otherwise, I suggest you ask the hotel you booked in Kunming if they can provide this service. Lussie Lu Replied on 03:40 AM Aug. 02 2012
