Hi there,I want to go from Kunming to Luang Namtha in Laos. Is there a bus going directly or do I have to go to Jinghong first? If I go to Jinghong, I would likely prefer a sleeper over night so was wondering from whitch station they depart and whether there is any time schedule existing?Moreover, would it be possible to buy bus tickets in advance cause I heard during high season they might also be booked out earlier. Or is it possible to buy a bus ticket departing in the evening, on the same day I arrive in Kunming? I will likely arrive Kunming in the morning.Thank you for your help,Yanick
There is no direct bus or train from Kunming to Luang Namtha. But there is one direct bus from Kunming Naoyao bus station(昆明市南窑汽车站) to luang prabang each day, departing at afternoon, arriving at about night the next day. You could call this number 0871-3510739 to the bus station for more information.
This is the international bus, an early booking is appreciated.
For your information, we could not offer ticket booking only.

Topic From: Shangri-la Transportation
we plan to visit Yunnan end May 2013. we only have 8 days to cover Kunming, Lijiang & Shangrila. we ''ll arr Kunming, spend 2 nite there. than go to Lijiang. what is the best way from Kunming to Lijiang? by flight or train? how long it would take by train? & what is the cost? spend 2 nites in Lijiang. we plan to go Shangri La. is there any train from Lijiang to Shangri La? spend 2 nights in Shangri La,than fly back to Kunming. is this planning good?
Thank you for your inquiry.
1. From Kunming to Lijiang:
There are flights and trains, the train cost about CNY90-CNY230 according to the class of seat, and takes about 9 hours. In my opinion flight is better, the flight takes about CNY1200 but we can always get good discount, occasionally if we are lucky, it is cheaper than the train.
2. From Lijiang to Shangri-La:
There is no train between these two cities, only buses and flights are available. The Bus takes 3.5h- 4h and about CNY65.
3. For the itinerary:
Your plan is good, but you have 8 days, I recommend you add one city. Are you interested in minority people? Dali is famous for Bai people, and we usually arrange Dali with Lijiang and Kunming, and 8 days are perfect for the tour.
For your reference, here is a package tour, if you are interested in it, please feel free to contact me at: email@example.com
I’m looking forward to hear from you!
