      taxi to qiaotou for Tiger Leaping Gorge

      Yunnan Sheng Apr 6, 2015 at 6:50 AM

      Hi,
      What's a reasonable price for getting a taxi from Lijiang (Shuhe old.town specifically) to Qiaotou for the start of the tiger leaping gorge trail?

      I've been told numbers ranging from 50rmb per person to 500rmb in total.. So am a bit hewildered!

      Secondly I hear that many travellers choose to take the bus from lijiang bus station instead. Whilst we (3 of us) are willing to pay up to 200rmb for the cab, does anyone know the bus timetable in the early morning around 9-10am?

      Thanks so much.

      My friend and I want to travel china in July - September (not quite sure in which month exactly).
      We are worried about the heat and the rain.
      Do you think it is possible to travel during this time of the year or would we be held by the weather?

      Is it recommended to stick to a particular part of China during these months?

      I need some help! I have applied for Business Visa for short term internship in China. For 3 months

      I want to go from Shanghai to a Yangtse River cruise leaving from Yichang. Most travel brochures show a flight to Wuhan and then a 4-5 hr bus ride to Yichang. I've found that there are direct flights from Shanghai to Yichang. I'd prefer to save time and money and fly direct. I'm wondering why travel companies do this? Is there something special about the direct flight or the bus ride?

      Has anyone been to Jingzhou? We're going there for one of the stops on our May holiday trip and are looking for some tips/recommendations. Or, personal experiences/opinions also welcome!

      1) How do you move on to Wudangshan, from Jingzhou? I guess it doesn't make sense to go back to Yichang to try and catch a train. Are there direct buses from Jingzhou? If not, where should we change... probably at Xiangfan?

      2) How long would you allow for sightseeing in Jingzhou? We were planning on perhaps 3 hours, but wondering if it's too long or too short.

      I'm about to jump off of a hydrofoil in Yichang and take a train to Xian, while making a two-three day stop in Wudang Shan. Time: the last week of October, 2007. I'll be in a company of three friends, all first time in China, almost no command of Chinese

      I've had a look at train.hepost.com, and there is a train K625/K628 with a stop in Wudang Shan

      I've heard one cannot book railway tickets in China earlier than 5 days from the trip date. I have also heard there may be difficulties (ticket availability-wise) with catching a train on a midway station

      sorry if I sound a bit too fidgety. Do you have any idea if trains in this part of China are packed at this time of year?
