Before we leave Kunming we thought it will be a good idea to take the new tour bus as announced on gokunming. A policeman pointed to the stop, the bus came around as showing on the pictures, the only different was it had number 23 on it, plus a sign on the side tour bus, it was not 20 rmb not 5 but only 2 rmb obviously for a Dutch guy a bargain, we could hop on and hop off, the only problem was the route, nothing like what was described in the article. We are going after our trip of 5 weeks back home on July 7, anyone can let us know if we had the tour bus or just a wannabe one? And were can we hope on? We are based at the crowne plaza hotel
That all sounds a bit fishy to me.
Bus No.23 is not a tour bus. It's a regular bus that goes all the way up to the North. Also, this bus line runs late at night but the fare jumps to 5 yuan.
They must be using the rainbow coloured tour buses for fill ins when other buses break down...
We are staying at 399 qingnian rd, on Dongfeng squire no tour bus in spite of the schedule, is this tour bus an ongoing project or just an marketing project
(that last post means that we have no idea and probably neither do the people running the show :-)
Received an email from ???? Who asked me why I can not see the difference between bus 23 and an tour bus?
The double decker bus has a canapé on the second floor, it has the rainbow colours and it has written 50 cm big letters TOURBUS on the sides, on the front it has a sign 23 plus some Chinese I can not read.
Beside that an local policeman pointed at this bus as being the new tour bus. I admit I am not Eindstein, but when it said tour bus, has the rainbow colours and the yellow canapé on the upper desk I did not realise that that means nothing, it is just line 23, undercover maybe?
