taxi to qiaotou for Tiger Leaping Gorge  (2 Answers)

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.

Katie

Malaria and other assorted nasties..  (5 Answers)

Hi guys

I'll be travelling to Yunnan in early April, going through Kunming, Dali, Lijiang and 2 days at Tiger Leaping Gorge.

I've heard all sorts of things from the friends i'm travelling with around the innoculations they're injecting (Rabies, Typhoid, maybe Hep A/B..) and the tablets they're taking (Malaria and the russian roulette of side effects).

I may be going out on a limb here, but is this all rather dramatic when I'm spending 2 days in a 'rural' location (Tiger Leaping Gorge) and staying at decent guesthouses/inns for the rest of the trip? Maybe it's the thought of Yunnan being exotic, or am I being far too lax in my own attitude to health, given my itinerary and April travel date?

any thoughts welcome!

Katie

independent travel  (2 Answers)

Hi,

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

from xixuangbanna to yuanyang

Hi,
planning to go back to Yunnan in Jan or Feb for at least 10 days into area with rice fields near Yuanyang or Lao/Viet border.

Which district is best to use as a base for exploring the area, any place that has bike rental services?
Thanks,

Shangarila

Hi,

I am leaving next week to Kunming-Dali-lIjiang and the itinerary after Lijiang is TLG to Shangrila and back to Lijiang.

Could you please advise any public transport back to Lijiang and for how long ? The group will come bback to Lijiang again after one night in Shangrila.

Thanks.

Re enter from Laos  (3 Answers)

Hey Guys,

Im gonna be coming from Laos at the beginning of February time which will coincide with Chinse New Year. I was thinking of either getting to Kunming or Dali and basing my self there for the travel difficulties to die down.

Also, do you think I would be able to book train travel from Laos a few days a head to try and beat the difficult transport.

HELP!!!! Easter trip...  (4 Answers)

Hi all
Planning a Yunnan nature trip this coming easter. Below is my draft IT:

Day1: fly directly to Lijiang. visit the old town, take in night scenery
Day2: take a day trip to Dali - is this worth going? the three pagodas and some old towns?
Day 3: spend the day in LiJiang - YuLong mountain, Shuhe old town. Take night bus to ZhongDian OR take early morning bus to ZhongDian
Day 4: arrive ZhongDian (or is this Deqing?) Tiger Leaping Gorge, Potala gardens
Day 5: want to go see the BaiShuiTai, but i dont know how to get here. Pls help!
Day 6-7: Kunming wonders

Questions:
1) my IT sound feasible? any suggestions to add more scenic spots, and what areas to skip?
2) is zhongdian and deqing two different places? if yes, can we cover both in 2days? special mention to the BaiShuiTai (the calcium pools)

really need your inputs esp point to point travel times between Dali, LiJiang, ZhongDian/Deqing and their respective places of interest.

Start pouring in VTers!
