Q & A about Lijiang by Our Customers
Topic From: Lijiang Transportation
Hello,On aug. 16 I will arrive at Kunming Airport in the afternoon. In the night of the same day, I want to go by train to Lijiang. Now my question is: Can I book a train ticket which you can deliver to Germany before I fly to China or which other delivery options do you have if I do not stay in a hotel. Can you deliver to a specific address or counter at the Kunming airport as wel?
Asked by Manfred on Jul. 30, 2012
The ticket couldn't be delivered to Germany because the selling date is around 10 days before departure providing no enough time for delivery. You can book the ticket at the page http://www.chinahighlights.com/china-trains/ and collect the ticket at the ticketing window by presenting your passport 2 hours before departure.

HiWe are planning a trip to Lijiang in coming Dec (mostly likely from 13 to 18)...What will be the weather like and are 6 days enough to cover places of interest in Lijiang?
Asked by Weiling on Jul. 25, 2012
Hi Weiling, December is mostly a sunny month, with temperatures between 12°C (53.6°F) and 15°C (59°F). It seldom snows this month but it could be cold in the early morning and evening.
Wear two trousers and a sweater with a down overcoat. Bring some cold and flu medication to help you if you get sick or have a reaction to the altitude. Also bring a hat.
6 days is enough for a basic travel to Lijiang. But if you want to explore more, you can stay longer. Please see our Lijiang Tours. http://www.chinahighlights.com/lijiang/tours.htm

Topic From: Dali Transportation
HiIs there is a direct bus service in the morning from Lijiang to Tengchong? Thanks.
Asked by Lim YS on Jul. 23, 2012
Thank you for your inquiry.
Regarding your questions, I am sorry to inform you that there is no direct morning bus from Lijiang to Tengchong. There is only one direct bus departs Lijiang for Tengchong at 8PM every day so far, it arrives Tengchong in the next morning (about 6AM). If you wish to leave Lijiang in the morning, you might go Dali first, and transfer there. There are 4 buses leave for Tengchong from there, the ticket costs about CNY 108, and it takes about 6 hours to get there.
The bus schedule and rate above might be changed without any notice, thus they are just for your information.
Hope it helps.
If you need any tour service from China Highlights, please do not hesitate to contact me at Robert@chinahighlights.net, we are glad to serve you with a memorable China travel.
Wish you a nice day! :-)
