Topic From: Kunming Weather
Hi. I should be arriving to Yunnan within a weak, according to the flight I booked from Beijing to Lijiang. However, I am doubting wether I should forget about the trip, since I have been reading the news about the flood in Yunnan and I am starting to get worriede. I would like to visit Lijiang, Kunming and Dali, and maybe the Tiger Leaping Gorge. Is it a good idea, or would it be better to forget about it given the current conditions? Thanks!

I think it is fine to visit Yunnan, we do not get any information from our local agency in Yunan regarding to the effect of the flood.
Please feel free to contact us if you need any arrangement or help of your Yunnan tour.
Have a nice day!
Hi! I was in Yunnan about 2 1/2 months ago, and I loved it! I am not sure what the rain condition was now, but I know the big storm in June missed Yunnan completely. I spend a week in Lijiang and a day in Dali, so I can't say I know the place well, but Tiger Leaping Gorge is currently under construction and only a portion (the leaping tiger portion) of the park is accessible (a few km of hiking trail). Supposedly the scenery is better seen from the opposite side, but if you only want a taste of the place, it is still worth a trip. Hope that helps!

Hello. This tour includes flights and transportation within China, so it does not include flights from EWR. We also suggest that you book international flights by yourself in your country, because air fares are lower from the departure country.
Topic From: Horticulture Expo Garden
how far is Kunming world expo to train station - Kunming Lijiang?
Is it easy to get a taxi from expo to train station?
What are the programmes at nite at Kunming world horticulture expo?
Asked by Ms Choo on Jul. 22, 2010
It is easy to get a taxi from the Expo to train station. It will takes about 30 mins and cost RMB50 for cab fee. There is no any activities in the Expo Area. It is looks like an empty garden. Tourists are unable to enter into the area after 18:00 and the Expo area will be closed after 20:00. So I do not recommend it to you. You can go to Shanghai for the current World Expo.

Thanks, Mia, for your help. Is there a bus schedule I can look at to see what time buses leave from Lijiang bus station (to Kunming)? And is there a way to book it in advance? And do the overnight buses have bathrooms on them?
Asked by nicki baman on Jul. 6, 2010
I couldn't find a bus schedule, but buses are frequent, one departs at every half hour. For night buses, you can catch one departing at 18:00, 18:30, 19:00, 19:30 or 20:00.
You can go to the bus station and buy one on your own. Or you can buy 1 or 2 days before you want to go. If you book a Kunming or Lijiang tour package with us, we can arrange our local tour guide to buy the ticket and have it delivered to your hotel. (For tour packages, refer to http://www.chinahighlights.com/citytour/complete-china-city-tours.asp).
There are no bathrooms on the bus, it might have 1 or 2 stops somewhere on the way. But if you take a train, there are bathrooms on the train.
Topic From: Kunming Transportation
I would like to go from Lijiang to Kunming on an overnight bus. How long is the bus ride and is it easy and efficient to figure out?
Asked by nicki Baman on Jul. 6, 2010
It is very convenient to go an overnight bus from Lijiang to Kunming, which takes about 9 hours. You can take bus at the bus station.
You can also take a train from Lijiang East Railway Station to Kunming, which takes about 10 hours. Train K9608/K9605, departs at 22:12, arrives at 07:22.

Hello I am looking at booking a multidestination flight from Guilin to Kunming and then onto to Lijiang for two people on 18 August 2010. I notice that there is a China Southern Flight from Guilin to Kunming that gets in at 3.55pm and then another China Southern flight that leaves Kunming for Lijiang at 5.15pm. I would like to know tow questions:
1. is 1 hour enough time between the flights?
2. Will China Southern airlines check the bags in all the way through to Lijiang or will we have to collect the bags at Kunming and then re-check in for the flight to lijiang?
Your assistance on these questions would be greatly appreciated.
