I will be in Kunming March 8 2006. I want to try to get to YuanYang to take early morning photos (or early evening photos) of the YuanYang rice terraces. I only have 24 hrs to do this (by bus or other method). Does anyone know the bus schedules from Kunming to Yuanyang, and from YuanYang back to Kunming? Where do I get the bus from? Is there a tour company that can take me out and back in a day? I don't need a lot of time to explore--I can get quite a lot of photos done in about 1-2 hrs, regardless of the weather conditions. I'm booked at the Camellia hotel however they could not tell me much about YuanYang.
I don't think you could manage it, unless you could hire your own vehicle. There's no bus that goes directly to Yuanyang from Kunming, you'll need to change buses at least once. Even a 2-day trip would be pushing it.
