Anyone want to go to Ruili for the Munao festival Feb. 21st?
Or, can anyone recommend a hotel in Ruili?
Thanks!

Also, if you're native Chinese and knowledgable about Ruili, I could hire you as a guide-pay for your traveling, hotel, food and some extra for your services.

I am local. I used to be tour guide so that I know this place and the Jinpo ethnic. If you are interesting please contact me. I think it is better to have a conversation before you go to Ruili.

Are there any direct buses (Sleeper or day buses) leaving from Kunming West Bus Station? Does it necessary to purchase the ticket in advanced?

no way (104 posts) • 0

i'm pretty sure there are direct buses from the west station.
if not, you can get a bus to dehong (德宏),then transfer.
i recently sent a friend off that way, no advance purchase
needed. city bus #80 will get you to the west station.

Thanks. Do you have some scheduled times of buses? So that I can go ahead of time. Really appreciated.

There are 29 buses per day to Ruili between 8:30am and 9pm. There's likely a break in the afternoon after which sleeper buses start: www.km-ky.com/2010/0208/111.html

I usually go over to the bus station several days ahead of time to buy tickets. I hear there're agents who can book for you and even arrange for departures from nearer to the city center, but I've never tried such a service.
