Hi, good morning. I would like to travel from shanghai to Kunming/yunnan and to visit Lijiang River. Please kindly advise the most efficient route. Many thanks for your kind help. Warm regards, Richard
Asked by Richard Lee on Nov. 4, 2012
Hi Richard, either from Shanghai to Kunming or from Kunming to Lijiang, there is a long distance. So both recommend plane as transportation. Between Kunming and Lijiang, Dali is also highly recommended. Then you can fly to Dali first from Kunming, and drive to Lijaing from Dali. We are very glad to send you a detailed itinerary, please let me know below the information:
1. Number of people in your group including yourself
2. Length of stay in China
3. Inbound / outbound city
4. Starting date of the tour
5. Class of Hotel: 3 / 4 / 5 star
6. Estimative total budget per person
Topic From: Kunming Weather in September
Hi, Agnes here. I plan to book my flight on Sep 2013 to KUNMING, DALI, LIJIANG, SHILIN & ZHONG DIAN. Izzi a good time to visit? Izzi a raining season? Any hotel can suggest?
Asked by Agnes on Nov. 3, 2012
Hello Agnes, in September, the average low and high temperatures are respectively 15 °C (59 °F) and 23 °C (73 °F). The rainy months have ended and the weather is fine. T-shirts and long trousers are appropriate for September, and with a moderate wind, it is not too hot or too cool. It is definitely a good time to visit the places you mentioned during September. I am glad to recommand you a proposal if you could tell me how many persons are there in your group.

I am an avid gardener and would love to visit Lijiang to see the flowers. Would March be a good time for me to visit and see Spring blossoms?
Asked by Jill on Oct. 19, 2012
Hi Jill, March is a good month to visit Lijiang but not the best. The temperature difference during the day remains large, with a hot sun that shines strong. The temperature in the morning and evening is between 4 °C (39.2 °F) and 6 °C (42.8 °F) while it can hit 16 °C (60.8 °F) and 20 °C (68 °F) during the day. I suggest that you go in April, while the weather is warmer and the flowers are blooming.

Will be going to Kunming, Dali & Lijiang on 11th Nov for 8 days. Pls do advise on types of clothing. Necessary for Long John? Any good place to taste some local foods?
Asked by Ginnie on Oct. 7, 2012
Hi Ginnie, During November in Kunming, Dali and Lijiang, from the previous report, the temperature difference between day and night is quite large. The hottest time of the day can reach 19 °C (66 °F) and at night the temperature can fall to between 7° C (45 °F) and 8 °C (47 °F), or even 5 °C (41 °F) to 6 °C (43 °F). If it rains during the day, the temperature falls even further to between 5 °C (41 °F) and 10 °C (50 °F). Autumn and winter clothing, such as coats and sweaters are essential for staying warm. The weather is dry so use soothing moisturizer. You can also check the up to date information for each city via this website: http://www.weather.com.cn/english/
For local food, just go to the local restaurants, not tourism restaurants, then you can taste delicious foods. If you need any tour service, please feel free to contact me.

Topic From: Shangri-la Weather
I am planning to visit Shangrila and Dahli, Lijiang on Oct 20 for 8 days. How should I dress? Is it cold?
Asked by tom on Oct. 2, 2012
Hi Tom, October is a little cool and it rains less. The maximum temperature is 20 °C (68 °F) and the minimum temperature is 12 °C (54 °F). Besides wearing T-shirt and long trousers, bring a cardigan or coat for the early mornings and evenings. Ultraviolet radiation is strong, so wear sunscreen with SPF 20 and PA++ to protect your skin.
Topic From: Lijiang Transportation
We are planning to leave Xi''an and go to Li Jiang, from there to Shanghai. We could fly from Xi''an to Li Jiang. Would you also recommend flying from Li Jiang to Shanghai. Seems a long way to go by train. Or, train from Xi''an and fly to Shanghai?
Asked by Pauline fisher on Sep. 29, 2012
Hi Pauline, the train from Xi'an to Li Jiang or from Lijiang to Shanghai takes more than 40hrs. So it is not suggested to take the train. And the train from Xian to Shanghai takes 14-20hrs. If you have interest, you can try. But personally, we don't suggest.
