Advise needed for trip from Kunming to Dali

by cmclsa

February 16, 2006

We are planning a trip to Kunming shortly and are interested to travel from Kunming to Dali. We were told by our travel agent that we can either travel by tour bus or fly from Kunming to Dali.
We understand that travel by bus will take somewhere 5-6 hours due to road condition and occassional traffic jams. Flying will also take about 3 hours considering in and out of airports.

Can anyone give me some advise as to which route is best to take. Considering driving safty and road condition.

Your advise is appreciated.

Hey there, yes the bus is roughly 5/6 hours. No you don't need a "tour" bus. Kunming is a friendly, easy city to navigate. Just head to the bus/train depot and buses leave practically every half hour/when full, it is a popular destination and you can go when you feel like it, time wise, anytime during the day. Don't know about flying, sorry. Hope this helps.

I was in Dali, Kunming and Lijiang a year ago and a lot had changed since my first visit there almost five years ago. From Kunming to Dali you just need to head to the bus station as someone else mentioned and the buses leave throughout the day but if i were you I would get there early. We took the 8am bus I believe which we had to buy tickets for the previous day as they sell out pretty quickly. The ride was about five hours and it takes you to Xiaguan, not Dali. From there you will hustled to get a taxi with many 'black' taxi drivers in tiny little motorcars, but their prices are very high. Instead, just walk to the main road where you will see a bus top and you catch the bus to Dali which will take just over half an hour and only cost you about 5RMB max. Its all very easy and the scenery is to die for!

Also if you want to get to Lijiang from Dali, that is also very easy and the bus leaves very frequently.

Any more questions, please just ask!

Travel Tips for Kunming

Get a haircut from RMB 8 (wash, cut & blow-dry)

by hooiluangoh

The kunming hairstylist does a good job, especially with men's hairstyle.

I watch the men who emerge from the shops and they all look very good.

The price goes as low as RMB8 (wash and cut), near Yunnan University.

The one I mentioned is on the same street as Harbour Plaza. They boast to have imported the stylists from Quangchou. They may ask if you want a face wash in addition. This is going to be a RMB50 treat though.

The great energy saver

by hooiluangoh

Eletricity does not come cheap. But Kunmingnites know how to make use of cheap and environementally-friendly solar energy.

Most apartments have many solar panels installed on the rooftops. It's quite a scene, and you can always use that to figure out your bearings.

flower-bird market in Kunming

by picek about market

Here you find evereything from crap to antiques. There is also a lot of stuff in the huge building in front of it and it's good for hunting Chinese paintings, wooden products, jade and tea supplies. Always bargain. Don't buy just any antique qhich was offered to you and sellers (young females mostly) can be very intrusive sometimes and it's better to avoid them unless you really want to buy something from them. There are sections to buy cheap DVDs and music. Traditional medicine, birds and bird flu (hehe- don't take it too seriously), plants, beautiful orchids and asparagus, camping equipment. depends on skills...

I like this cafe

by explorer001

There's a cafe which serves great food at the intersection of Dong Feng Dong Lu and Bai Ta Lu, about 300 meters away from Camelia hotel (turn right from the hotel).

I love the tuna sandwich especially, served with fries - huge serving

Price of food - about average.

They offer free internet service. Limited surfing time.

Another Arirang

by hooiluangoh about A-Ri-Rang on Qing Yun Road

Brand new.
Clean.
Looks expensive, but not really

As in any other korean restaurants, one will always get freebies. I get 6 freebies which are replenishable: tea, kimchi, pumpkin soup, stewed potato, a green salad, sauteed mushrooms.

The waitresses say all the greetings in Korean, which I don't understand. They are friendly and prompt, and they remember to ask if I need more kimchi etc.

But the hand towels for guests smell a bit unclean. I hope that's an isolated incident. I ordered a Tuen Jang Chigae (RMB15). Rice comes with it as usual in a korean restaurant. Very good. Not too salty.

I looked through the menu and BBQ beef costs only RMB 20 per plate. This, if good, is really a bargain !
