Which bus station in Lijiang is better to purchase ticket to Shangri-La? Is it possible to purchase a roundtrip ticket the same day I travel from Lijiang to Shangri-La?

Asked by Dan on Aug. 26, 2014
Lussie Lu (Aug. 26, 2014) replied:
You could buy the ticket at Lijiang bus station(丽江客运站)loctated at No.25 Kangzhong Road(康仲路25号). The bus from Lijiang to Shangri-La sets off from 7:30am to 17:00pm, the bus from Shangri-la to Lijiang sets off from 7:10am to 17:40pm. It takes about 4 hours. If you would go back to Lijiang on the same day, you don't have time to have a visit. I am not sure if you could buy the round trip ticket, you'd better check it with the ticket office.

I need a reliable and trustworthy mini bus/van to take 8 people for some sightseeing in Lijiang/Dali and to Xiangge Lila for 3 to 4 days.

Dear Andy Tan, Some of the scenic spots are far from the down town, so it is not easy to quote to you at present. Could you please let me know which spots you would like to visit? In addition, our driver will serve you about 8 hours per day, there is an extra fee if you would let him serve you more time. Our driver only speak Chinese, if you don't speak Chinese, we need to arrange an English speaking guide for you. Please feel free to let me know the details. My e-mail is lussie@chinahighlights.net
