Kuming - Dali - Lijang

by Kasia12

Helo VT Forum,

Please let me know how to get
1) from Kuming to Dali
2) from Dali to Lijang??

How long it takes?

After Lijang I need to go back to Guangzhou so what is the best way? How many days it will take?

And another question - if I am in Dali - how many days I should stay there taking under consideration that I do not have much time.
And the same about Lijang. In this case I have heard it is minimum 2 days.

Thank you in advance for help!

Kasia


RE: Kuming - Dali - Lijang

You can get an overnight "sleeper bus" from Kunming to Dali. Dali isn't very interesting but there are some very nice and interesting villages nearby.
I got a minibus from Dali to Lijiang - that took about 4 hours, I think.
I think 2 days is just about enough in Dali. If you're in Lijiang you really should try and organise a day trip to the tiger leaping gorge and another day trip to Baisha. Another day to see the town, that's 3 days. Maybe 1 day in Dali, then.
Can't give you any advice about Guangzhou, I'm afraid, sorry!
Good Luck,
John

I have been to Kunming,Dali and Lijiang this October. Normally 1 night in Kunming,1night in Dali and 2 nights in Lijiang are enough. And from Kunming to Guangzhou,you'd better go by air which takes 1 and half hour.There're many flights available.If you want discount ticket,you'd better book from the agent.

We did the Kunming - Dali, Dali - Lijiang route in the second half of Nov.

From Kunming to Dali by bus, it takes about 5 hours by what was called the "luxury" bus (essentially, a large tour bus) that uses the expressway. We took a bus by a private bus operator, YNTAC, from their bus station in the Southern (关上) part of Kunming. There are also other buses which run from a bus terminal near the Kunming railway station.

From Dali to Lijiang, it takes about 3 - 4h by bus. We took a mini-bus, booked at one of the numerous travel agents in Dali old town. The travel agent claimed that the mini-bus gets to Lijiang faster than a large bus, which may be true as the roads the bus were winding mountain roads.

We spent 2 nights in Dali, and 7 nights in Lijiang. If you're short of time, I recommend that you spend less time in Dali and more time in Lijiang. There're incredible sights around Lijiang; we did a wonderful hike along the tiger leaping gorge.

If you're really short of time, you may also want to consider taking a plane instead of bus. There're planes that fly from Kunming to both Dali and Lijiang. There may also be planes from Lijiang to Guangzhou, but i'm not sure. Try checking http://www.elong.net/

Travel Tips for Kunming

Body massage by blind messeurs in Kunming

by hooiluangoh

I personally feel Thai massage is better, but chinese massage in Kunming is quite an experience also. At RMB 20 for more than an hour's service, you really can't complain too much.

The only peculiar thing is : the door is made of glass, making the activities inside plain for all to see.

This is something very peculiar to me. Even at the dentist, you can watch a tooth extraction process just standing on the outside.. Even at the dentist, you can watch a tooth extraction process just standing on the outside. You don't have to take off any clothes. The messeur may ask you if you want extra massage on a certain area. He/she then drape a few blankets over you, and the massage begins. This lasts for up to 90 minutes. After thta your hair style is definitely ruined because your head will be massaged as well.

In addition, they also have medicinal foot spa, which is soothing and get rid of the odour, especially after a long walk as a traveller.

Medication.

by Sharrie

If you are going in the winter, remember to bring many layers of clothing. The temperature varies a great deal within the day & one can in fact experience the 4 seasons on the same day!
The photo is that of the Red Cross Pharmacy in Lijiang area. Chinese medicine can be great though at times it takes a longer period for them to be effective. So, may I suggest bringing along your own medical supplies for the common colds & stomach flu.

Honey, buy some honey....

by hooiluangoh about Many specialty shops or supermarkets

This shop is located right outside Carrefour. But there are a lot of other shops who get their supply from Yunnan. HONEY. Many different types of it. From different flowers. With different medicinal property, from skincare to holistic health.
You have to ask the staff what is for what, they also have a brochure but usually they won't let you take it away.

But you may want to make sure that the shop is proper because a lot of shops fill their honey into unwashed plastic bottles which smell of chemical.

Over here it is common to just add honey to warm water, stir and drink. You don't have to use it as spread. It can also replace sugar in your soyabean milk ! About RMB 10 to RMB 25, depending on which type, and the size.

Like 500g of pipa honey = RMB 10.

Tibetian Food in Kunming

by caeruleus about Makye Ame

This is part of a small chain of restaurants in China. There are a couple in Beijing, one in Tibet and this one in Kunming. The owners have really done an exceptional job of creating the look and feel of tibet in their out of the way restaurant.

Everything in the restaurant has been bought in Tibet and brought to Kunming.

Being the first time I have ever tasted Tibetian food, I have no way to say whether it is authentic or not... but the taste was great. I really enjoyed the BBQ flavours. I have been told the restaurant also has Indian food, though I have not verified this.

The restaurant hosts a miriad of traditional Tibetian dances and singing performances while you eat your meal. Definately worth trying out if you are interested in a bit of Tibetian culture, but don't plan to make the trip across the border.

Mingle with the locals

by Dizzydean

Green Lake Park is one of the most picturesque parks in downtown Kunming. Around the park, there are also many excellent bars and restaurants. Since the park is the only one that stays open until 10PM, it is an ideal place for enjoying some Kunming nightlife. Mingle with the locals during the evening hours when many are singing, group dancing, and individuals playing their favorite instruments.

Of course, at any other time, the park is always worth a stroll.
