Hi Edwinliu, which country are you from, please? 42 countries are exempted from applying for a visa to travel to Thailand for up to 30 days http://www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/visa-application/special-region.htm But I don't know what the policy is in Laos. Sorry, we don't know the name of travel agent in Bangkok that travel that way.Whitney Liao replied on 2012-11-23
From Kunming to Dali, you can take plane at Kunming Changshui International Airport or take train at Kunming Railway Station or Coach at Kunming Coach Station.
From Dali to Lijiang / Lijiang to Shangri La/ Shangri La to Lugu Lake and Songzanlin Temple, you can take bus from the local bus station. It is easy and convenient.
We also have tour package for these placeS, with private car and English speaking tour guide. http://www.chinahighlights.com/tour/kunmingtour/km-3/
