      independent travel

      Yunnan Sheng Jun 22, 2014 at 11:13 PM


      I want to do independent travel to Yunnan and Guizhou. My interests are minority culture and photography.

      However, I have not done independent travel in that part of China before and don't know how to tackle the logistics. I have heard that getting around in that part of China is not easy.

      I have three weeks and want to cover Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Jianshui, and Yueyang Rice Terraces in Yunnan before heading to Huanguoshu Falls, Zhijin Caves, and the Miao and Dong villages aroind Kaili in Guizhou.

      If anyone has advice, please let me know.

      Thank you

    • 9 days - Lijiang, Dali and Shangrila

      Lijiang Apr 12, 2014 at 12:37 AM

      I am planning a 9 days trip to China where I will be flying into Lijiang and hoping to cover Lijiang, Dali and Shangrila. I would like to do some trekking and explore around to understand the local way of life.

      Some help in my planning is greatly appreciated:
      1. How many days should I spend in each of the places?
      2. How do I go from one place to another? Do I have to book in advance or will i be able to just do it via the guesthouse?
      3. How long is the travel from place to place? I am particularly concerned about the treks where I might require a stayover? Which are the ones I should look out for so I can factor that in my planning.

      THANK YOU very much!

      What is the BEST city in the world for living (comparing Kunming, China)?

      Kunming Dec 14, 2013 at 6:10 PM

      I am an American currently live in Kunming, China for four years now (for a total of 13 years in China). So, far it is the BEST city in the world for me to live in and I hope/expect to live here forever. However, if for some reason I can't stay here at some point (e.g. China won't issue me another visa), I want to have a backup city for me to move to. And I want to KNOW what my backup city is in advance.

      I have several criteria for my backup city (to try to match Kunming or better):
      1) Good weather year around (Kunming almost always gets up to 15 degrees (Celsius) each day in the winter and rarely goes above 30 degrees in the summer)

      2) Great prices compared to USA (it would cost me six times more to live in the USA given my current level of living here in Kunming: I have a 2700 square foot luxury apartment for $500 USD per month; my personal assistant works for me for less than $3 per hour, etc.)

      3) I would like to live in a city of 1,000,000 or more, although I might accept as low at 500,000.

      4) The residents of this city should have a friendly attitude towards Americans.

      These are my basic requirements. Do you know of any cities in your travels that might fit?

      With much appreciation...

      I'm planning a trip from Kunming to Lijiang by overnight train. I need some suggestion from you.

      1. Which overnight Train has VIP Chamber, since we, a couple, will visit with 3 yr kid (height is less than 95cm)
      a. K9606 (20:53 ~ 06:33)

      c. K9614 (22:28 ~ 07:39)
      d. K9652 (23:55 ~ 10:12)

      2. I will start on 28th Oct 2012 from Kunming by overnight train. Is it possible to book the ticket from the website just now to ensure to get by anyone else with my name & passport number.

      3. How much it would take by a taxi from Kunming new airport to Train Station at around 19:30 and what will be the time to reach.

      4. Is there any alternative way (by bus) to reach Train Station from new airport? What is the route if we want to go by bus & what time it may take at the evening time?

      Thanks in advance for your great passions.
