Many of our guests to Yunnan arrive via plane at Kunming Changshui International Airport before enjoying their stay in China's south-west. The airport is pretty big, so to ensure a smooth pickup by our drivers and tour guides, we list here how it works best and you won't get lost.

While Kunming is waiting for its proper subway network, the public buses around town are a useful alternative. For either one or two RMB per single bus ride, you will be able getting all over town, including most of Kunming's major attractions. Hop on!

Lugu Lake is a very beautiful place, roughly 200 km northeast of Lijiang by road. But it's exactly this road which still makes it very difficult to reach the remote area. Especially during rainy summer seasons like now, floods and landslides are a daily occurence!

Kunming's metro system is very new and therefore still quite incomplete. While there is a metro station close to our office, many other people in town still are waiting for their direct underground connection. This is what our metro system currently has to offer.

Following up our small series of Kunming airport shuttle articles, we today complete it with the bus routes of Airport Bus 919. It's the cheapest way to get from the airport into town or the other way around. Look for the big white coaches outside the arrival hall!

The high-speed train network in China is getting bigger: in Summer 2016, a new train line will connect Kunming in Yunnan with Shanghai at the east coast. The ride of over 2200km will only take 8 hours instead of the current 38. Get your thrill of speed!

Connecting many famous travel destinations in Yunnan Province, Laos and Thailand, the Kunming-Bangkok Highway is - despite cheap flight offers - a popular driving route among international travelllers. Go south, for 1900km!

Kunming is Yunnan's major infrastructure hub. Besides Yunnan's biggest airport and train station, Kunming is also home to several long distance bus terminals from where day and night coaches reach about every corner of the province. Safe travels!

We reported about the airport shuttle buses the other day. At twelve of their bus stations it is now possible to check-in for one's flight already prior to arriving at the airport. Receive your boarding pass at one of the stations first and skip the procedure at the airport!

The Chinese New Year is the most important holiday for Chinese and other nations in Asia. People who work or study in other cities usually go back to their hometowns to celebrate this big day with their families. We hope you booked your tickets already.
