      Yangchun Sep 22, 2016 at 4:55 AM

      I'm teaching English in Yangchun for 4 months as an internship. Does anyone know what is there around to visit on weekends? Or what places are nice to go out to in the city (parks, entertainment)?
      Also, if you know how I could find some internationals or English speakers it would be very helpful!
      Thank you!

      Do you think 60 minutes is enough for international transfer in Terminal 3 at Capital Airport?

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Mar 31, 2012 at 12:25 AM

      My travel plans are so far this : Arrive Shanghai, explore Shaoxing and vicinity, train to Guangzhou, onward either to Guilin and the terraces OR to Dali in Yunnan. it looks a beautiful place but its more travelling.

      Trains are not direct either so how much would it cost to fly ? i would go about 5th October for 4 days

      What travel options are there between Dali (Yunnan) and Myanmar (Burma)?

      by alwloch Online Now Sep 11, 2007 at 10:59 PM

      I will be heading toward Dali in late October and understand the best time to visit Myanmar and all its Buddhist pagodas is after November. There is only one hostel in the entire country, located in Yagon (Rangoon), as far as I am aware of. Also there is a train but I don't know whether it reaches as far as China or Thailand. Would anyone know the various ways a backpacker could enter Myanmar from Yunnan?

    • HEATED guesthouses/hostels in Dali

      by MDTing Online Now Dec 27, 2006 at 11:08 PM

      I am travelling from New Zealand with my son who's been teaching English in Chengdu, and will be in Dali in late January.
      We are considering these guesthouses/hostels ...can anybody tell me whether they have twin rooms with own bathroom (& western style toilet) that have some kind of HEATING (any other advice on Dali accomodation welcome):

      1. Dali mingtong yingxian hotel, Cai Cun village ...webpage on, but doesn't mention heating.
      2. No 3 Guesthouse (has Korean & Chinese webpage but no English)
      3. Dali Siji (4 Seasons) Inn has webpage on - says Air-conditioning....that means heating in the winter?
      4.Yu'an Garden

      Is there enough in Dali to occupy my wife and me for three days? We aren't the type to sit around a cafe and watch the time fly. We more about to see things. Your comments are appreciated.
